Last week in Singapore I had the absolute pleasure of helping this lovely Deadhead cross that often weary and fearful threshold of getting a first tattoo.
For me, tattoos shouldn't be bound by age, size, style or trends. For Tuffy, any larger would've been too much, and this bear was just the right design for her to get at that point in her life.
It's always the experience/ritual itself that matters most, the tattoo a mere by-product, a permanent record of the countless thoughts and emotions an individual has processed in the lead up to that moment.
Sure you can say it's not portfolio material, but I honestly think I gained as much from that process as did my client, knowing full well that I was able to politely and respectfully guide her with taking that very first step, and send her off with something she will undoubtedly cherish for the rest of her life.
Thank you for choosing me Tuffy. The pleasure was all mine. Hopefully this will be the first of many! 🙏🙇🏻🙏
