    Wow....... you're my fucking hero!!! Hands down the best sleeve i've ever seen, from the detail, placement, choice of MK ninjas, to the colors and your choice of artist. A whole legion of bows for you sir!

    :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

    Ermac looks like a beast, definitely my favorite go-to character when I wanna lay the murder game down!

    EDIT - was your reference point for Sub Zero from the first MK movie when he was fighting Liu Kang?? At the point when Liu knocks him down and Sub Zero slowly turns his head before making that huge ice force field thing?

    dude, im in NYC, who does your work and do you know anyone who specializes in black/grey ink especially? I wanna start my sleeve, but I want someone who will do the whole thing in different parts at different times and specializes in grey scale. any recommendations? ill come out to the island if necessary of course

    PS I don't know how you feel about quan chi, but id throw his symbol in as an easter egg somewhere if it was up to me where to put a lil something, just a suggestion

    That's awesome :lol: that fight scene is so well put together. That specific shot of Sub Zero when the music stops and you hear the sound of ice crackling as he slowly turns his neck to face Liu like "mawfucka I know you didn't just kick me in the chest like that...", and the music that starts playing is iconic. Great choice, and hurray for easter eggs!

    Hands are tricky, it's not a lot of real estate unless you have big hands, and the wear and tear on ink is the highest in comparison to the rest of your arm, minus the elbow of course. Dunno how you feel about lettering but what about "Flawless Victory" in red ink on your hand? Keeping true to the script used in the series?

    Edit - I forgot to say, you should probably email these pics, or when it's done actually, to Netherealm Studios or Ed Boon fan email if they have one. You'll probably get big kudos for your commitment and dedicating your arm to the series. They might hook you up with some swag too who knows?

    i do have big hands lol. its not a bad idea. at the moment im leaning towards the idea of some sort of special move of one of the characters ie cyrax net, quian chi green skull. not that those are what im leaning towards but an example of my thought process

    As a Mortal Kombat fanboy since the mid 90s I approve! I've been wanting to get the Mortal Kombat logo tattooed on me for some time and now I'm considering getting a whole character done lol

    Thanks for posting!
