Hey there im not sure the

Hey there im not sure the instant message go to you, I like the design a great deal. The tail needs to be much bigger, the boat should be dwarfed in comparison. Also the sea needs to be more hostile, the harpooners in the boat should be threatened on all sides!
Thanks for all your work so far!

Thats better but the boat is still too big in comparison.
If the tattoo is going the full length of the calve then the boat should be no bigger than a playing card in comparison. The rest should be a wild sea and tail.
