For my chest I wanted a piece that honored the history of famous tattooed women, hence the roses. When I approached Josh Ford at Lifetime of Sol, he drew up a beautiful piece of a Japanese-inspired spider lady with luscious red roses.
I have always loved all forms of art and knew I wanted a tattoo since I was a little girl in awe of my father’s Paratrooper tattoo. Over
For me, the beauty of the art is a bigger priority than the meaning behind the piece. Having custom work is comparable to owning a one-of-a-kind art masterpiece, and for me showcasing the style of a particular artist is of the utmost importance.
