ain’t feelin’ that first piece of ink you got as a youngster?
no worries, i’ve got you covered.
even though a small tattoo may seem relatively simple/easy to do, they actually are quite difficult. they require a very steady and soft hand. everyone knows that tattoos tend to bleed out/widen over time, if it’s done incorrectly your tiny tattoo could become a large mole in the upcoming years – who the hell wants that?!
had a lot of fun doing this piece. this client came to me as a referral from a longtime client of mine. he happened to be in the state for his father-in-law’s funeral and saw the work i had done on my client and wanted to get a memorial piece for his father-in-law. he wanted a nautical star since his father-in-law had been in the navy for almost 30 years, his initials, and for it to be falling out of the sky.
we were both very pleased with the final product.
this client came to me as a referral from an awesome long-time client of mine. he had gotten this tattoo when he was 17, when he was a very different person. he wanted to change his existing piece into something that was more him at this point in his life, something to showcase his culture and identity. more than happy to oblige!
