This is my half sleeve completed a few weeks back by Justin Acca of “Devil’s Ink”, Melbourne Australia. The concept was put forward to Justin and I allowed him to create what he saw fit even though being an illustrator myself I knew he’d do better having the freedom of creativity. Jus is a fkn champ. Just sayin.
The tiger represents my son who was born in the year of the Tiger, and the peacock is a tribute to a baby I lost some years ago. The girl is representative of me and the expression on her face is a glare at life and what else it dares throw at me. The butterflies tie in as they are one of my biggest phobias, and I think fit in beautifully with the rest of the sleeve. I love it and wear it with pride having a beautiful piece on me which represents so much of me and my life.
In total approximately 27 hours sit time.
