There is a heart warming story here. My client came to me wanting simply to get his daughters name tattooed on him. I don’t do lettering but before passing him over to one of my coworkers I asked him to really think about his daughter and what fatherhood means to him. Maybe there is an idea you have considered for a tattoo.
I gave hims some examples of other clients whom after thinking about their motivation in a new way came up with totally amazing pieces .
He went home and hit me up a few days later saying he wanted a mountain. Upon asking further he explained that he lives in Los Angels but works in Vegas .
This particular mountain is one he looks at every time he is driving home. For him it is a symbol of going back to his family and being dad.
As a father who is forced to live far from one of my children it really resonated with me.
I love when people take the time to really consider new ways of expressing themselves .

This #octopustattoo is turing out to be hella sick. I’m shading the whole thing exclusively with a 3 liner. Lots of lines , dots and whips. Yay!

The thing I love about Lindsay from @happyherbivore is that she basically lets me do what ever I want on her.
I have been begging her for a month to let me some how bring her simple boat and kite tattoo together and to life.
I wasn’t really sure what I was going to do. I had prepared and sun #mandala but as she explained what it was all about I got the idea of the cloud of wind directing the boat and the sun shining on the kite.
I just drew it on her #freehand and went for it. I really appreciate her trusting me with such a rudimentary #sketch.
But as I always say, if you trust your artist you are gonna get dope work.
This was well worth staying late to do.
