This design started as a custom pattern request from a man who lives in the mid-West. He was very clear about what he wanted, so I accepted the commission and drew it up for him and called it done. But no! Next thing I knew, he'd decided a trip to California for a permanent souvenir was in order, and he packed up his fiancé and flew West to have me do the installation. I was more than pleased. I always like to see a design come to life in skin as a tattoo.
