a very cool couple who were referred by another client came into the shop recently (we love referrals!) (and cool people!!) and both wanted work done. after a few minutes of laughing and chopping it up with them, came to find out that these tattoos were gonna be wedding presents to each other. 🙂 they got married last year and were now getting around to bestowing wedding gifts onto the other person – of course we were more than happy to help them out.
it seemed very fitting that the husband wanted to create his own family shield; he wanted something that was somewhat traditional, with classical imagery, but since his family doesn’t have a crest or anything, he wanted to create something that would be uniquely his and have that as a family emblem from now on — very cool for people starting their own lives + family together.
check back later for his better halfs’ piece! 😉
