Koi Fish and Crane full sleeve tattoo by Joe Galloway

We started outlining the koi and crane tattoos in summer 2018. My client was really consistent with each sitting and we managed to get the koi fish and crane tattoo sleeve completed withing 6 months. We wanted a to complement the light colours of the cranes feathers with a darker approach to the background and koi fish. really happy with the outcome of this tattoo. we used a nice ocher for the ginkgo leafs making them sit on top.
