Fill: Something used to close up empty spaces in a sleeve, sock, etc.

Fineline: Usually highly detailed images with very thin lining.


Flow: Describes the feel of a design. How its parts interact with each other and/or the body. Sometimes the flow needs to be obstructed to get a volatile feel. Sometimes the flow needs to be smooth to give an exotic or peaceful feel.

Peony: The peony is symbolic of wealth. This wealth is not necessarily a material wealth as much as an overall prosperity for a unified group working toward a common wealth of happiness.
