This is my tree lady, the 2nd time around. I had her tattooed onto my left upper thigh. She's exactly how I drew her. Needless to say this is one of my favorite drawings, otherwise I wouldn't have inked myself w/her. The original was done in colored pencil and traced in ink. Obviously this is all ink. In case you were wondering, she was # 4 of 6 tattoos. It was slapped onto my leg by Dan at Jack and Diane's in Gulfport, MS. :) P.S. She got a little 'squished' in the scan and size alteration. She's actually a little bit bigger. The actual drawing is 3 times bigger than what is on my leg.

wow this is gorgeous! If I would ever have a tattoo it would be something like this. This is absolutely beautiful!
Love Rian

So you scanned your thigh eh? That must've looked really funny... hmm... *thinks*

Oh! Right, the picture itself is cool, but it's not one of your most original ones - I like others better if I may say so, but it's still an awesome picture and your use of simplicity comes in its right... Nice shadings, and nice use of brown color which is hard to get right (at least to me)

I dont usually like fantasy based tattoos but this is pretty good. Didnt see it as the original but must check back to your gallery for it. An interesting addition would be to have twigs sticking up for hair in the same fashion as her fingers which look really good by the way
