Calligraphy and Geometrical Fox Tattoo by espressocat Calligraphy and Geometrical Fox Tattoo by espressocat
This is my beautiful, enchanting tattoo done by the beautiful Petra.
www.behance.net/gallery/Tattoo... You can see the full turnaround color image in her gallery in the link i posted. It is a calligraphic style and geometrical style fox reflecting over the red triangle

I have followed Petra's Work for about 2 years now. I was, and am, in love with her tattoo skills.
And the most wonderful thing happened to me 2 months ago, she was visiting from the Czech Republic in America. She was working from a tattoo parlor called White Rabbit Tattoo about 50 blocks from my home! I rushed to the tattoo parlor, and managed to get her very last slot before she went back to Czech.

We sat down and worked this design out together last month, which was an honor to have her work with me (i just wish i got a picture of us together) I was originally going to get a cat, but then i mentioned a fox. She looked at me and said in her gorgeous accent with broken english, "No cat, you are like fox. Your face, eyes, body. It is fox." and so i took her advice and we picked a fox!
And then i sat down for a 3 1/2 hour session to get this beautiful piece of art done.

I am blessed to have Petra's work on my body forever, and i will never regret it

it was very painful :) it took 3 1/2 hours to do. The closer you get to the bone the more it hurt. I also have 2 inner wrist tattoos, those hurt cause they were on my central vein/blood flow tube thing. (im too tired for proper terminology)

But to be honest, a few hours of pain is worth a lifetime of beauty :)
Thank you so much for your kind words!

aha sadly you would have to wait 3 years to see a tat on me ;v; i really wish you could get a tat at 16 with parental consent but its not possible in my state. unless i go to a non-professional but i would be too scared because i would be afraid they would mess up the tat or i would get a serious infection and would have to go and see a doctor which means my parents would get in trouble for me having a tattoo and being underage.
