The "The great Wave," by Katsushika Hokusai.
For the placement of this tattoo it was important to me to lay it out to accentuate the muscle structure. The image lines up on top of the peck and up onto the shoulder. Along the back edge of the tricep the backside of the wave arches up. This last session we added color to the sky to keep in the traditional look of a woodblock print.
