Black and Grey Girl Tattoo

I tattooed this black and grey girl tattoo on Andrew this fall–it was so cool to tattoo an art teacher! Growing up, art was always my favorite subject, I remember so many of my art teachers so fondly and still refer back to things I learned from high school and middle school art classes all the time. In the age of social media, I still keep in touch with many of my teachers and its neat to see what they’re up to now. It was wonderful to get to talk about art with Andrew while we were working on this–he is an artist and also very dedicated to his students. He asked me a lot of questions about what advice he should give to his students about pursuing a career in tattooing–something we get asked a lot. My advice to Andrew’s students was the same thing I tell anyone who asks me–if you are interested in tattooing, the best way to learn about it is to form a relationship with a tattooer by getting tattooed! Here’s the other side of Andrew’s lady head tattoo, thanks so much Andrew, I look forward to continuing to work on this arm!
