it's back!

hello! just a quick little post to let you know all that i am accepting tattoo designs again. i know that didn't last long, right? well, the reason is i cut down my hours at work so i now have a bit more time to fully focus on tattoos and designing. i am super excited for this new chapter in my life, however scary it may be.
this is the most recent one design i did. the client ended up not wanting the final inked piece, just an image. she really wanted a whimsical bird and the saying "she believed she could so she did". great quote, no? she also really loved an embroidery piece that her grandmother had made so i incorporated the little chain flowers because they were so cute and delicate. i think it turned out really cute. she will be getting it on her shoulder and has already made the appointment. i can't wait to see it!

happy wednesday and thank you everyone for all the wonderful comments in my last post!

  8. This piece is great! I think you incorporated the embroidery into the design very well. It's going to be an amazing piece once she gets it done.

  9. That is adorabable! I'm not a tattoo girl to be honest but if ever one could change my mind.. If ever I were to get one it would need to be something really cute and girlie like this :) I found your blog via Grits and Moxie and I love it! It's different to any other I've come across which is great. Congrats on the new job, I'm lokoing forward to seeing how you get on :)
    Anyways, nice meeting you.. Kay (from Ireland)

  18. I just wanted to let you know that I recently got a tattoo based on this design - I hope you don't mind. I love it so very, very much, and my tattoo artist put a beautiful traditional spin on it. When I was browsing ideas, this was the first piece I clicked on and instantly fell in love with it. It has so much meaning to me and my life. So thank you for sharing!
