I’ve been wanting a sleeve for the longest time but I had to find the right artist to do it….And now I’ve found him. Kyle at WGF Tattoo: The Ones Your Mother Told You About.
The idea behind my sleeve is a family theme. I have 3 sisters, 1 brother and of course my parents. Each member of my family will get an animal to represent them. So since my mother loves giraffes that’s what she gets. An Owl for my father, a fish for my brother, a turtle for my oldest sister, a swan for my second oldest sister and a lady bug for my younger sister. But I didn’t want them realistic….I wanted them to be somewhat cartooning with big teeth, almost in the style of Tim Burton. And as it turns out when I presented the idea to Kyle….he loved it. I also wanted to throw something in there for my new born son. His name is Roman and I thought what better way to portray him then with the colosseum.
Kyle’s drawn up a few things for me so far and I couldn’t be happier.
I’ll post more as it develops further. jade
