Ship with Sea Serpent Tattoo

I had a great time working on this ship that is framed by a sea serpent for Nick a few weeks ago. Nick knew he wanted to get a tattoo of a ship and was creatively open about how it was framed at the bottom, he just wanted it to be traditional. I based the serpent of a Sailor Jerry design of a sea serpent to continue working with traditional imagery but frame the tattoo with something a little less common than flowers or a banner. I love the sea serpents and dolphins that Sailor Jerry drew, they are reminiscent of old maps and mythology. Thanks for getting a fun one Nick!
