He looked like a hobo so I drew him as one. Now he's molted and is a fancy mature male, but I'll always remember this important period of his life when he looked like he crawled out from under a baby's car seat.
Took the plunge and finally got some ink. Fresh after session 2 for the detailing. Any criticisms and opinions welcome. If I can find something to nit-pick I will have it worked in, the artist is pretty flexible and just wants satisfied clients. Though, I think it's pretty good.
My dream tattoo artist was making a short trip into NYC so I did a very irresponsible thing and flew out from LA to get this piece done. Model is my B.hamorii, Turtle, with some slight color tweaks :)
(please excuse the poor lighting!)
