I really love doing tattoos like this hand holding a winged rose tattoo, and I’d love to do more like this one. Karen has been a great client, and I really appreciate her getting tattooed by me when she’s visiting Minneapolis. Karen┬ácontacted me when she knew she was going to be in town, and sent me a loose list of some ideas she had and asked me to choose one to work on. This is a really great way to work with someone, it gives me an opportunity to imagine drawing something in lots of different ways and choose to work on something I feel especially inspired to work on. It’s great to work with clients like Karen, I appreciate the trust put in me as the artist, and the willingness to allow me to explore different ways to approach my job. Thank you so much Karen!
