owl and hawk for my 30th

It was my 30th birthday so my lovely boyfriend took me for a super nice weekend in the middle of the country side and we had a bit of raptor encounter....it was amazing...i wanted to do falconery for soooo long and finally i had it!!! hawks are beautiful and clever and fun to watch...owls are thick as fuck apparently, and they sleep all the time...not too much fun, but pretty!!i wanted to take all the birds at home apart for the eagle.....soooo big it could have eaten a child in one go, and thinking about it now, it would have been useful to get rid of some of those skanky Cally kids...but never mind!
thats it...i want a hawk.

Actually, the shamrock shape wasn't even planed, it just came out this way. At first I thought it looked like hearts, but I'm a bit tired of hearts right now, so the green shamrock shape seemed a better option.
While drawing this I couldn't help but think "it's be easier with vector on the computer", but damn, I want to train with *pencils*, and I'll do. :p

The customer wanted some surf elements like waves, shark theeth and stars in the tattoo. It's a symmetrical piece with some flowing curves. Here's the high resolution tattoo drawing:
