Healed Tattoos

Today I was thinking about how lucky I am to have the privilege to tattoo people, to use the skin as one of the mediums for my art.

It truly is an honour to have people trust me enough to do this, and when you get to see your work healed and settled into peoples skin, clean and solid, as its going to be for the rest of the individuals life, its such a pleasure and a sense of achievement to feel “I created this image inside living tissue on a human being”.

The top row is Native American Navajo and Iroquois inspired pattern work around a Native American Crucifix, and the last set is a piece inspired by the Medieval European Pelican in Her Piety image with a twist representing family.
