Sharon came in to see me last year for her first tattoo. She wanted a henna-style arm band and brought in several print outs of prescription free cialis images that she liked. She gave me tons of leeway on what exactly to include and lots of artistic freedom arranging the henna inspired elements she suggested. Her boyfriend was super supportive and came in with her for her tattoo sessions. After he passed away, she decided to get another tattoo on her other arm but instead of an arm band, she thought a larger half sleeve piece would be nice. She is an avid gardener and has bird feeders in her yard; she decided that a hummingbird was the concept that resonated the best. So she found some new images and I created a synthesis of them for her. I wanted to use similar elements to what we had on her right arm for continuity, and use placement, as well, for balance.

I've been working with Johanna on her tattoos for several years-- cover ups and new ink, all custom tats. She is an artist (a film maker) and is very articulate. Working with her is easy and enjoyable; we share the same artistic language. Now we are doing another cover up piece, this time on her lower left leg. She says, "For this cover up piece I want something pretty, something with a strong visual aesthetic. Peonies are my favorite flower and I like the cheap online purchase viagra Japanese style. I had several tattoos prior to finding Victoria and ups shipping viagra got a cat tattooed on my leg before I knew about how to choose an image and tattoo artist. I will never go to
anyone else again. Victoria is a great artist (she was a graphic designer

thoughtful and truly interested in her craft. She is thorough and buy viagra pill online her
shop is immaculate. And she's a great conversationalist to boot!" Click on the Read more link to see the drawing, before and outline photos.

Last year Ron came in for his first tattoo. He said this about the experience, "I got my very first tattoo a couple of months ago. After deciding what I wanted, I googled top tattoo artists in Portland. Victoria's site, Floating Lotus Tattoo.com, was the third one I looked at. When I saw the beautiful artwork on her site, I didn't need to look any further. When I met her, I felt an instant connection with Victoria. She made me feel completely at ease and welcome with her warm, inquiring personality. After our first consultation, it was immediately clear that Victoria was emotionally invested in my vision and completely understood the spiritual aspect. She has a calming, patient demeanor and, understanding that this was my first tattoo, explained carefully each step of the process. I was very much impressed with her understanding of c-pill buy viagra anatomy and how the tattoo will react and flow with the body's movement." Now we are working on Ron's second tattoo-- an upper arm piece based on Steampunk aesthetics. He says, "My father passed away, with little warning, in May of 2013. Until that day, I do not believe I ever really had a true sense of my own mortality. Also, I've always been fascinated by the fast shipping cialis soft parallels between the human body and timepieces. Both are a measure of and cheap cialis tadalafil 20 mg evidence to man's arbitrary construct of time. Both 'wear' over time and require maintenance to function. Both play a role in shaping history; neither time nor man is immortal. A tattoo with a steam-punk theme would allow the perfect representation of the idea of the fragile state of generic viagra bbb man evolving into something lasting--mechanisms replacing organs--that would be more than a reminder of my own mortality and a desire to perpetuate it. It would reinforce the permanence of 'possible'. For my second tattoo, I showed up with only an idea and a few pictures
showing samples of some of the elements I wanted to incorporate into the
piece. Victoria took my 'vision' and created a series of sketches that completely blew me away! Everyone I have shown Victoria's custom artwork to is very impressed, as am I. I can't recommend highly enough, Floating Lotus Tattoo Studio. Victoria is a true artist in every sense of the word." Click on the Read more link to see the drawing I created, and the outline photos.
