slice of life

Art is not just something you see, its something you feel.  I appreciated it in all shapes and forms.  Especially this form.
Late last year I knew I was ready to get my next tattoo to commemorate such an amazing year I had in 2010.  
One day I came home from work and was knocked over by the amazing smell of Jasmine that had bloomed in my driveway. The smell made me feel calm and at the same time, kind of excited!  So I decided from that moment Jasmine flowers were to be incorporated somehow in my next tattoo. 
I went into Satisfaction Art Surfers Paradise and met Mickey.  We talked and that afternoon I was booked in to start the task.  He drew it up straight on the skin all work was freehand.
This is my 2nd tattoo and my first sitting for this piece was 3.5hours. 

The artist, designer and now one of my best Friends, Mickey
 halfway through first sitting

line work complete!

second sitting another 3 hours for shading

Mickey is an amazing artist and I am blessed to have met him and now call him friend.  I am over the moon with this design, its one of a kind, It's a celebration of life, love, beauty and sensuality.
I have ONE flower to go, we ran out of time as a customer had turned up that had an appointment.so watch this space!
