Just about any person of Puerto Rican lineage is familiar with the mighty infamous Coqui. This funky lil frog is the representative animal of Puerto Rico and can be found everywhere over there. They’re teetering on being a pest. They have a very distinct nighttime call that  sounds like it’s saying “coquiiiiiii, coquiiiiiiii…!”  Well back before Puerto Rico received its name, there lived indigenous peoples known as Taino Indians. Their markings could be found all over the island and influenced this design. This definitely displays the pride in his heritage and history.

This was created using a 5 super tight liner, 9 curved magnum, and intenze and starbrite inks
