CONTEST WINNER 💥
If you didn't follow the story behind this piece, here's a summary:
Neko contacted me early 2018 asking for a sketchy Phoenix chest piece to cover his scars from top surgery. Back then, neither time nor finances aligned so we left the conversation there. He mentioned he'd wait because he only wanted me to do this piece.
After all, it was very Symbolic:
It represented rebirth. Rising from the ashes.
Taking what life throws and making something beautiful out of it.
Both moving on and making piece with the past.
Then a few months ago when I held a contest, the website that picks a random name out of the pool selected his name.
I didn't recall the details but it seemed familiar... So I went on my email and looked it up and what a surprise to see that he had just won a tattoo for the EXACT same amount of the quote I had given him...
If this isn't serendipity, divine alignment, synchronicities, you call it!
I don't know what it is.
So thanks to all who participated!
⠀I look forward to having more of these 🙏🏻 ⠀
