Humpback whale and sea turtle wildlife tattoo

HEY EVERYONE!

This week has been an incredibly exciting and informative week. In house we have the guest artists Stefano Alcatara, Ernesto Nave and Matt Stebly. It's one of those weeks that is a real reminder of how fortunate I am to be in the position I am. It's incredibly humbling to be contiously surrounded by some of the best in the industry, and to form bonds and friendships with people who years ago I thought were untouchable. Coming to Off the Map was like taking my first breathe. It's unfaultering helped to shape and nurture my growth as an artist. 

Here's a half sleeve I started the other day. The client wanted to embody her love of Humpback whales and Hawaii. This is after our first sitting. The background will be inspired by polynesian designs and traditional elements but done in subtle transitional greytones so as to not distract from the featured whales and seaturtle. Looking forward to getting back into this one!

Thanks for looking!
