My good friend from college has been asking me for over 2 years to draw him a tattoo. Since he never had an exact idea of what he wanted...I waited. I didn't want to do anything he'd regret. But recently, he asked me to do a portrait of his grandmother with a beach scene. I thought by doing the idea of framing the portrait in, it makes it seem like stained glass, which is a nice visual solution. With the pulled curtains and sunset over the ocean, it will really pull the piece together.
I did the ink outline, which he is getting this week, and will do the color for him when he needs it in a few weeks.
Let's hope it turns out looking great!
