Fortunately, Celeste, the owner of this great tattoo, was happy to share it with us and she explain its origin:
"My grandfather, in 1950, he shot a deer that was the biggest 8 Point buck that was shot for ten years in New York State ... My family still has the bust of the deer so I took pictures of it and I gave it to my artist ... the branch is for a tree that I used to climb in his back yard ... and there are also tree rings throughout the design."Her artist is Grant Lubbock from Red Baron Ink, on the Lower East Side of New York City.
Thanks to Celeste for taking the time to share her cool tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
