For Amy

My friend Amy just lost her mom unexpectedly. I felt really sad for her. So what do you say to someone who is going through grief? I'm not that great with words, but hopefully this piece that I made for her will remind her of all the good feelings only a mom can bring.

My Tattoo

The path from life to death, the surreal and the real being one and the same, and the concept of time are all topics that way heavy on my mind. My arms have already been inked; designated for life and death in my family. My right arm represents my heritage and birth, my left arm represents those who have passed. I had this concept to tie in both arms with a piece spanning my chest, using symbolism to tie in the above mentioned themes. Here's the outcome. -C

Jake's Tattoo

A good friend of mine wanted me to make him a tattoo consisting of three components: A cephalopod, bones, and machinery. Here's the outcome. -C
