FINALLY! A new Tattoo Tuesday! Trust me, I'm as happy about this as you are because it means I got a new tattoo! Yay! It may come as a bit of a surprise though, it seems I've been keeping a few things from you guys lately. Naughty naughty. Still, this one was a little more spurr of the moment to be quite honest. But it doesn't mean I love it any less. In fact, I ADORE this tattoo!
Done by the lovely Tilly Lace, Trailer Trash Tattoo's apprentice, there is absolutely nothing amateur about her work and I'm absolutely thrilled with the result. A lil drunken donkey. Or a self portrait as I like to call it. Heh. I've been thinking about getting a cute little donkey for a while. Then I saw some Sailor Jerry style flash that gave me the loose idea.
Also, I've had this song in my head ever since - hah
When I spoke to Tilly about it, she already had some original artwork that seemed to fit the bill. I just decided to make the donkey drunk. And that was that. It's so cute and I loved Tilly's idea for the heart-shaped rope border. It's adorable and I'm so in love with this tattoo! Tilly is also progressing in leaps and bounds and her skill and speed is only continuing to increase since the last time she tattooed me. If you're thinking of getting some of her art on you, get in quick - I sincerely don't think she'll be an apprentice much longer at all!
Don't worry, I'm already planning my next...it's a sickness, really.
