"Schaffende Haende"

Where we are at, after the last session on Sunday. Things are looking great! Horiken has now returned to San Jose, and so this blog will be on hold for the time being...Matane!

The Thirtyeights and Ninth Session

with 4 comments

Double session today, filling in more scales. Forgot to ask if Horiken ever gets bored with scales? I nodded off occasionally during the session, which was kind of weird! Sunday will see the final couple of sessions this time around, which is good, as I am tired, in pain and itchy!

The Thirtyfourth Session

leave a comment »

After a two hour session on a rainy, and slightly miserable, day in Yokohama. We experienced a minor aftershock during the session, which was kind of weird! Anyway, all went well and things are starting to take shape. At one point Horiken went over part of the area he tattoed the day before; painfull!!!

Horiken is back in Yokohama for a few weeks and we got started today with a double session, shading the head of the dragon.

Shading the scales on my left side. We got a lot of work done today!
