Lately I've had tattoos on the brain (crikey, that would hurt.)
I work with a really cool chick that is absolutely covered in tattoos and I'm a little jealous. Plus, I moved to San Francisco in December and I can't walk two blocks without seeing someone with an amazing tattoo or ten.
Waaaay back in 2007 I got a GORGEOUS tattoo on my back based off of a poster from the EPIC artist, James Jean and have been mulling over what to add to it ever since.
I've bought a dozen of his prints, own a handfull of his books and collect as many of his bits and bobs as I can.
I've been thinking about using some of his flower sketches to fill in the areas around the outside of my tattoo. Perhaps they could wrap around my shoulders and flow down one of my arms. I've collected a few images from JJ's site that I think are excellent inspiration:
Then this morning I came across this photo:
It must be a James Jean! My passion for more JJ tattoos has been reignited. Now all I have to do is find an amazing artist in San Francisco to do it! Oh, and save a ton of money. Crazier things have happened.
