Today I travelled to Silvan, in what felt like the middle of nowhere, to attend the Tesselaar Tulip Festival. What has that to do with tattoos you ask?
Spending the day surrounded by so many beautiful colours, I couldn’t help but be inspired. There were sculptures scattered around the farm which made me think of art, which led to me thinking about tattoos on the drive home.
I’ve finally decided on the design for my left arm sleeve. I’m going with a loose Japanese theme, with flowers such as chrysanthemums, lotus, cherry blossoms, dahlias, daisies, hydrangea, iris and lilies, incorporating them with my existing peony flower on my wrist. I’ll also have some dark clouds in the background to really make the flowers look vibrant.
Now comes the fun part of deciding on a tattoo artist and the not-so fun part of saving for the tattoo.
Where do you draw inspiration from for your tattoos?
