Shanda came to see me about covering up and old tattoo she had on her outer upper right arm. She had some specific ideas about the imagery she wanted to use but wasn't sure how everything would go together. I told her that was my job, lol. She says, "My tattoo is a work of symbolism, with the three butterflies representing my children, the red Robin representing strength and the Forget Me Not flowers to represent my lost child along with the “Now he flies with butterflies” quote. I absolutely love the way Victoria took her time and listened to me. She made this process very easy."
Here are some pictures of the drawing, before, outline and very fresh gray shading stages.
