Jill got this cat tattoo from another tattooer a year or so ago. The placement was a little weird. She decided that she was gonna have it removed. 2 or 3 sessions later the thing went from black and grey to brown. But didn’t look to be going anywhere.  So she came to me with the idea of adding a Victorian type woman with the cat.

The perspective and placement guided me towards the direction of making the cat part of a frame for the woman as opposed to her standing next to the cat. There is always more beauty to the face the closer we can zoom in.  Bigger face = more beauty.

Who is the best tattooer in Los Angeles?

Session 1 –

I’m really happy with the line work.  Used my old Aaron Cain coil machine for the first time in a long time. Think I might make it a more permanent part of the rotation again.

Sorry for the blurry pic.
