Custom tattoo completed 2012. Started in 2005. This tattoo shows my personal artistic evolution throughout. It was originally started as just the earth skull on the upper arm. We then extended it into a quarter sleeve, then a half sleeve, and finally made the decision to go full sleeve. None of it was planned from the start, but with a little creativity and freedom of design, we were able to pretty well seamlessly tie it all together into one cohesive narrative of the life cycle of nature, both here on Earth and in the wider expanses of outer space. All is connected, all is one. Very fun piece on a great friend and client.
