I don’t think I’d ever get a tattoo – I change my mind way too much and frankly, I don’t have the balls to do it. I do however have an amazing friend who by no measure lacks the balls to get herself covered in ink. To date I’ve helped design three of her tattoos. Her most recent one is however by far my favourite – mainly because the entire design is my own work. She told me what three elements she wanted (the stag, the tree and the birds) and roughly described the composition.
She was happy with my design and we are both impressed with the tattoo artist’s work – because it’s one thing to have a detailed sketch on tracing paper and a completely different story getting someone to replicate it perfectly on skin.
I am honoured to have a friend who trusts my artistic skill enough to have it etched onto her body forever.
