Bear Tattoo

Bernardo wanted to get a tattoo of winnie the pooh, but make him less cute and all grown up. We decided to do a bear tattoo with a pot of honey with the phrase “Oh Bother,” making the winnie-the-pooh connection. Winnie-the-pooh is a fictional bear character created by the author A.A. Milne in 1926. Milne wrote a series of books and poems about the bear and his adventures with his friends. He based the characters on his son’s stuffed animal collection, and the boy in the stories, Christopher Robin, is named after his son. The books were illustrated by E.H. Shepard. I love the idea of taking an iconic story or character and illustrating the idea in a new way to work as a tattoo. Thanks, Bernardo, you’re full of great tattoo ideas!
