Elephants are fascinating creatures. I personally have one adorning my own back in representation of the women of my family (elephant herds are lead, protected and raised by the females, kinda like my family). When this client asked me to design an elephant for her, I was thrilled. I really like elephants. During our communications regarding the size of the piece, the client mentioned this is for a person who is 6’0″ tall. That’s a long friggin thigh so the piece has to fit appropriately. The client sat great for the whole session and results look fantastic.

This was created with my new found love #09 08 bugpin liner (it holds so much ink, goes in really smooth and the lines are wonderful!), #08 17 bugpin curved magnum (for those super soft shades) and intenze ink
