A year and a half ago, I came across a shot of a pastel watercolour tattoo on a girl's back and became obsessed with it. I couldn't stop thinking about it for a year. I started shopping around to different tattoo artists and found that my inspiration shot was probably Photoshopped or was airbrushed. My friend (who has an awesome Russian Firebird tattoo) recommended me to meet with her tattoo artist, Lemur. Besides being a tattoo artist, he creates these abstract paintings on the side. We talked about my vision and I gave him the go ahead to create a piece of abstract art on my back.
This was my first large tattoo and the pain was quite...wow. Maybe I am a wuss after all. Thankfully we were able to finish this in one session at just over three hours with just one touch up session afterwards. Although this tattoo isn't of anything but colours, it speaks to how I've had ten years of fine arts background which ultimately led me to studying design and landing my dream job.
