In this episode of SESSIONS, Sean McCready works on a realistic underwater-themed leg sleeve.

Waikiki Beach. There’s nothing quite like it in the world. A vibrant, bustling, modern day city-scape comes to a jarring halt, giving way to the city’s famed white-sand beaches. A casual volcano protrudes in the backdrop. Each year, Waikiki caters to nearly 8 million people visiting the island of Oahu to get a taste of Hawaiian culture, and for some, this includes getting tattooed.
