Traditional Roses

helinaThis is Helina; she will be attending Beauty School at the Aveda Institute soon. She came in to see me last year for her first tattoo--- a cupcake and stars on her upper back, that a friend of hers had drawn. Now she has a little time before she starts at Aveda, so she asked me to put some Old School/Traditional style roses on her feet. Feet and hand tats are tricky to tattoo and are pretty hard for most people to endure. So I was a bit reluctant and told her all about the caveats but she said she could do it and she did! She sat for both outlines and gray shading like a champ, which made my job a lot easier. Click on the Read more link to see the drawings and photo of our first session.
