form of skin art. The most popular image tends to be a shamrock, or a clover. My client Steve choose to support his roots with another time-honored symbol of the Irish; the harp. Unless you are familiar with the Guinness draft logo, or the Irish in general it may come as a surprise that the image of the harp is the symbol of the Emerald Island. He brought in a photo of a real harp he printed off the internet, but requested I draw it up in a more traditional style.
The client on this tattoo wanted a wolf tattoo with tribal . I told him we should do the wolf photo realistic and have the tribal fading behind the wolf. Doing a little research went a long way in creating this piece. We looked through images of wolves and found a pretty mean looking one for reference and then drew on the tribal with a marker. Sometimes drawing directly on the skin allows for a better flow, making the tattoo contour to the body alot more than it would if I used a stencil.
