Quetzal Tattoo Rehab

Hi hi and happy Tattoo Tuesday everyone! I will start doing #INKPLAY reports here of some of the cooler tattoo projects that I get to do. I am ecstatic and forever grateful, always, that people trust my creativity and hands creating their pieces to life. It’s a great feeling. If you would like to see my full portfolio, please visit Little INKPLAY Shop. That said, #INKPLAY Reports, yokoso! <3 On Halloween, I was challenged to fix-up and add-on to an existing quetzal tattoo. In case you aren’t familiar with the bird, you can read more here.

(Pre) Existing Quetzal Tattoo ~

References~

I always ask customers for references of things they find important. This one is a no brainer that the quetzal was the most important aspect of this piece. So using the time wisely between his consultation and appointment date, I received an email of amazing references. 😀
