I recently took a quick trip to California and had a chance to do some inkspotting along the way. There's nothing like breaking a winter slump like going to warmer climes!
My luck started at the airport, JFK Terminal 2, where I met Jonathan, who was happy to share this piece from his forearm:
The piece wraps around the arm a bit, so I did my best to collage the whole tattoo:
Jonathan is a graduate student in New York, getting his PhD. in Literature, with an emphasis on Queer Theory. He has three tattoos and they all feature these figures of Victorian Dandies.
All his work is done by Cris Cleen at Saved Tattoo in Brooklyn. Jonathan told me that he liked Cleen's work with hybrids and loved his design of butterfly wings. This flying dandy is the end result.
Thanks to Jonathan for sharing his cool tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
