Decay and Rebirth
My good buddy and coworker James Hall wanted a pair of bio-organic style sleeves; one representing life and growth, and the other representing decay and rebirth. This Arm is the decay and rebirth side, based on the concept of fungi and dirt-dwelling insects being the decomposers of nature, with a rotting peach thrown in for good measure. This and the other sleeve tie into his gears of time backpiece which I did previously, and which you can see elsewhere in this tattoo gallery.
