Queen of Hearts Tattoo

Tattoo by in Traditional Tattoos.

I had so much fun doing this Queen of Hearts tattoo for Jonnelle a couple weeks ago! Jonnelle knew she wanted to do a lady head tattoo, but also wanted to incorporate some imagery from playing cards.

This Minnesota girl tattoo was a really fun project. Ethan wanted to get a Minnesota tattoo, but also likes to collect traditional tattoos and wanted to do something a little different, so we came up with this girl all bundled up for the Minnesota winter. I love doing tattoos of girl heads, and woul...
