  12. 9

  16. 13
    23d702f9 fed8 4cdf 8dd6 56b94d8bfcb5
    Wanted to get something else but the guy could tell I wasn't really excited... So he showed me this piece of flash he'd just done that day and said he'd only tattoo it on one person. I liked it, so hey! (c. Jul. 2014).

    I had to be talked into this one. I pose nude for my artist and he wanted to do a piece to put in a book. It was excruciating, but I love it! And it led to him doing many, many more pieces like this one (c. Apr. 2015).
