Today's challenge was to incorporate into a new pattern a small triangular tattoo and the melanoma-removal scar in it. The client had a very clear concept of what he wanted, and a triple tree of life pattern by the Welsh artist Jen Delyth worked perfectly to give him the circle of trees he had envisioned. To honor his recently deceased horticulturalist father we added three roses, making the piece a dedication. A nice way to rehabilitate a scar, and give it new life as the central element of something more meaningful.
