A Hummingbird Love Story
Updated: Jul 21, 2021
Spring contacted me about covering up an old tattoo on her left arm. She says, "On June 27, 2018, I lost my soul mate after a difficult battle with brain cancer. Shortly after he passed, on a particularly difficult day I was visited by a humming bird that came and hovered in front of me, looking right at me for almost a minute, then flew away. I believe my soul mate was there in that moment.
"I came to Victoria with a rather vague idea of a cover up tattoo with a hummingbird and my love's initials. She was able to turn a couple of Googled images I provided into a truly original piece of art that is a perfect memorial. I really couldn’t be happier with it, and it is an original design belonging only to me. I am so grateful for the amazing job she did, it turned out better than I ever imagined it could."
Here are some pictures of the drawing, before, outline and gray shading and the final color stages.
