Brian's a really tough guy, he sat for multiple hours over two sessions to complete this tattoo. It's partially healed and partially fresh. Lions are really tough to tattoo, they have a ridiculous amount of hair, and the hair seems to go every which way. They're even harder to tattoo on the ribs. With that being said, I'm really happy with the way everything turned out on this one. I've done quite a few lion tattoos and it's neat to see my progression as I get more experience.
