a perfect tattoo for spring and a winner!

happy thursday! today i am doing my taxes, oy vey and i hope it doesn't hurt too much but i will be happy to get them over and done with it.
i am super excited to share with you another tattoo design that was done for the wonderful and super sweet cayce. she was such a pleasure to work with and i really enjoyed drawing her something special. i always get excited when someone wants birds AND flowers!
i came up with 3 sketches for her and the first one i did she LOVED. let me tell you, tracing paper is my best friend, it makes my life so much easier because it makes it easier to sketch out an idea, is easy to erase and if i don't like something but certain elements i can just trace over what i have already done and move on to another idea.
cayce is getting the outline done on march 11th and i can not wait, as i am sure she can't either. getting tattooed is so much fun. i will for sure share it here on the blog. currently on my flickr i am putting together a portfolio so it is easier to show my work there rather then refer to blog posts. there is just never enough time in a day to get everything done!

doing all these designs is giving me the itch! i gotta make my birthday tattoo appointment asap. any furture tattoo's in your horizon?

>>>> oh and can't forget....the giveaway winner is...... ROSE! congrats girl! email me your address and we will ship off your presents!<<<<

  4. I love the birds and flowers! You should make a City Bird's Coloring book with your tattoo designs. I would like it... just saying.

    Good luck with the taxes... mine experience doing taxes wasn't so good this year :(

    2. I have a large colorful Phoenix on my back (not in flames but gracefully swooping down!) and just don't know what will go with that! But thought it would be nice to get a real bird...

  6. Oh this is just too sweet! I love it! :) I have such mixed feelings about tattoos... I mean - I LOVE them, but I can never pick one particular for myself. I have some plans, though. Keep your fingers crossed that I stop postponing and finally go get a tattoo myself :)

    1. yea it can be overwhelming on deciding on a design. when i get mine i draw it on myself before i go to make sure i love it. that really helps a lot! i hope you get one soon, sweetie!

  7. That is a beautiful design.

    I'm a bit of a scaredy cat about tattoos, but I do have a design in my head that I would get if I ever got one. If the mister gets one, then I may.

  13. Such a beautiful design, I am inching ever closer to mine, I want a bird too but its a native NZ bird (Fantail). When I get braver - perhaps you can draw me one.
