Here we have a tiger tattoo on my friend and coworker, Mimi.

This tiger tattoo is a reproduction of one of Bert Grimm’s flash designs.

Grimm was one of the most famous and influential tattooers from early American tattooing. I’ve wanted to do this tiger tattoo for several years and and am very happy with the outcome. That being said, I don’t get to do enough tigers or big cat tattoos, especially ones that have such a simple folk art quality to them as this tiger tattoo has.
