I ran into Alfredo last month in Penn Station and he shared this tattoo:
He credited this to an artist named Sy at Sunset Park Tattoo.
Alfredo, who has "over 23" tattoos, told me that this traditional sugar skull is embellished with a hairstyle modeled after the way his mother wore her hair on her wedding day. The rose at the edge of the tattoo is in tribute to his grandmother.
Thanks to Alfredo for sharing his ink with us here on Tattoosday!
