Garden Spider Tattoo

I did this garden spider tattoo on Tracey when she was in Minneapolis for an entomology conference. The spider tattoo is a cover up of a small bee tattoo Tracey wasn’t happy with, and it worked great! It’s so fun and intimidating to tattoo imagery that the client is an expert in, there are intricacies of images that a specialist sees immediately, but it can take some guidance from the client to get the design just right. I learn so much about my clients and the things they are passionate about by doing tattoos like this–photographers tell me about their cameras, tradespeople tell me about their craft, scientists teach me about their area of expertise. I feel really lucky to have a client base with such a diverse range of interests, I learn so much! Thanks Tracey!
