Rattlesnake and Hourglass
Duane had an almost complete sleeve with some space left on the side and back of his forearm to fill, so he approached me with the idea of a rattlesnake and hourglass full of blood. I added some mesquite branches to complete the Texas badassery vibe, with some classic flames for good measure, then connected it to everything else using the existing background color.
