This had me chuckling. The client had become fed up with random Asian folks walking up to her and identifying her. Kudos to the previous artist for getting this right. It freaked her out on several occasions because she didn’t know the people. Supermarkets, car washes, clubs, at the local bodega… So she had shown me a direction to go with based on another tattoo that she admired. I must say… she sat for roughly 6 hours on this. She is definitely a trooper but we had to extend it out to another session.

This was created with a 5 tight liner, 9 tight liner, 17 bugpin curved magnum (for the black and gray work), 15 curved magnum (for the color), and eternal and intenze inks.
