TATTOO COMMISSION

Tattoo, Abi Daniel, Hoarsefly

A tattoo commission for a friend.  He requested a Jackalope with true antelope antlers (rather than the deer antlers that you see more often), surrounded by a wreath of sagebrush.  I added the crown and the bleeding paw.  I love tattoo commissions, and thinking about line weight and silhouette a bit differently.  I am always incredibly flattered that someone would  apply my art permanently to their skin, it’s a great compliment.

This is the second tattoo design I’ve done for this person – he already has one of my winged rabbits and some finches on his upper arm.  The Seattle tattoo artist who inked it stayed remarkably true to my mark making, I was very impressed.  I’m not sure of the artist’s name, but I’ll post it here if I find out.  They changed the proportions a bit, making the wreath smaller in relation to the jackalope, but I think it works far better given the forearm location.
