When he contacted me for a cover up tattoo project, Tommy had a lovely idea for what imagery to use; he had an old ring tattoo and some scars on his left forearm, and he thought we could use a tree growing up his hand, turning into a forest/wood, complete with a deer in the background. He says, "For some time I’ve wanted to cover my past scars and marriage up with my new life but didn’t know how or with what, exactly. I knew I wanted a nature scene to go with my new life and new hobbies but I couldn’t find the image I had in my head on the web so I decided the best thing to do was find the right cover up artist.
"So I began searching and found Floating Lotus Tattoo. After meeting with Victoria and giving her some ideas and listening to her feedback, I knew I had found the right artist for me. Somehow Victoria took what I had in my head and drew it up perfectly for me. I was pretty set on no color but she quickly changed my mind!
"I am so thankful for the work and effort Victoria puts into her clients and artwork! I will continue the forest scene with Victoria and any other tattoo in the future."
Here are some pictures of the drawing, outline, gray shading, and final color stages.
