I'm a tattoo designer too!! :)

My design

Tattoo (so happy it wasn't changed much!!)

Who knew I could do this? A friend of mine asked me on Sunday night if I could do this tattoo for her for her first tattoo appt. on Monday night! I had to quickly do this and it came together! I was pleasantly surprised with how it turned out. I even got out my old light table and tracing paper and started layering the pieces like I see them do on LA Ink, what a fun way to work!! I really enjoyed it! After I had my basic design down I scanned it in and cleaned it up a bit in Photoshop and added color to it. She absolutely loved it too!!! The rest is history! I now have a few more people lined up who want my art on their skin! How cool is that?

Here's a little story behind it:

Scripture used: Place me like a seal over your heart, or like a seal on your arm. For love is as strong as death, and its jealousy is as enduring as the grave. Love flashes like fire, the brightest kind of flame. Sgs 8:6

This was written by my friend: (Her brother has some disease of which I'm not sure of but has had major health issues) this one is about me and my brother ♥ Love has sustained him♥ ( God has sustained him,for God is Love)...Love has beaten death,on two levels for him.Here ,and eternally. The bird symbolizes how I have seen my brother,in his glorified body in my dreams I have walked with side by side with him...I have seen him in spirit and in truth..and I have seen him fly :) -The ultimate Freedom ...blue- his favorite color and also representative of Revelation and the Holy Spirit. the heart underneath the eye...which I didn't even have to ask for -but was thinking about how to incorporate a red tear (and when Aimee sent it it was there :)-prophetic moment much Aimee?) to me represents two measures one of suffering in death(Jesus),and suffering in life (Keith's)....
