One shot Sailor Girl tattoo with a lighthouse

one shot sailor girl with lighthouseSailor Girl tattoo on Marten, completed in one session.  Marten is one of those easy going customers who supplies enough of an idea but doesn’t try to micro-manage the entire design and tattoo  I had tattooed him twice before.  With this tattoo, he brought me one reference and a desire for color, but seemed open to me designing his idea as I saw best.  In my opinion, this is the best way to get a nice tattoo.  Find a tattooer whose work you like.  Build a relationship with him or her by buying tattoos.  Then, be open to the professional’s ideas.  Walking in and picking flash from my handmade collection is also a great way however 😉
