"Make it pretty."

TanziTanzi got an anklet tattoo awhile ago; it's in a fairly heavy, "neo-tribal" style. She wanted to cover it or maybe add something to it, to make it lighter and more colorful. "Can you make it prettier?" she asked. I said, "Absolutely. It would be better to add some other, more delicate plant imagery to it, than to try and cover it up, as it is very dark. That's just the style." After some thought, she sent me some photos of flowers and butterflies that she liked and I incorporated them into her drawing.
