Finished this one up Saturday evening. Used a different approach with the roses from my usual, and I am stoked on the results. Definitely love that I can still evolve my style after all these years tattooing. โค๏ธ๐ŸŒน #ainslieheilich #rosetattoo #roses #inked #vintagekarma #tuscola #chambana #centralillinois #champaignurbana #tattoo #girlswithtattoos #qttr

Wore my Patriarchs Militant uniform last night during the Changing of Command at Sovereign Grand Lodge last night. This uniform is dated 1944, right around when the PM switched to this style, which is what is still used today. Itโ€™s a very WWII look. #ioof #oddfellows #patriarchsmilitant #uniform #vintageuniform #stillregulation

I am super proud of this sleeve. It started as just the upper arm scene. And then we added the wolf to finish off the half sleeve. The client, Walker, then wanted to go full sleeve with it, but he had an existing older wrist cuff piece by someone else that wasnโ€™t going to fit in. He wanted a Montana lake scene with a cabin and camp fire. I knew it would be a challenge to create the scene and have it tie in seamlessly with the upper half we had already completed. I love that this whole project challenged me and made me really think about warm and cool color relationships and how to depict late day sun on objects in a way that was believable. Plus I got to tattoo a lens flare! โœจ We got this done just in time for Walker to move on to his next adventure in life. I donโ€™t know if we will be able to work together again. But I hope this one brings him joy for many years to come! ๐Ÿ™.
