We came up with a long extensive list of things we thought could be cool to have. Nothing excluded. Then, from there we took out the stuff that I thought wouldn't translate well in the style. Then the stuff that wasn't so important, and prioritized certain things to create the hierarchy.
High priority, the main point and what we want to make the centric piece of the tattoo
Medium supporting elements that help bring the vibe to the piece like the clouds having music notes in them, the surf board, etc.
Filler like the trees, waes, trees and some more clouds etc. - these help bring unity and harmony to the piece
