Mikes father amassed an amazing collection of traditional tattoos in is 70-odd years. When his father passed away, Mike decided to forgo the conventional route of portrait tattoo... Instead we incorporated all of the tattoos his father had into one sleeve. Because Mike and his wife are such nice people, and because I had so much fun designing and giving this tattoo, it was hard for me to remember that it was a sad experience for Mike. Although it may have been bitter sweet for him, I think it's one of the best ideas for a memorial tattoo a client's ever had.
