New mountainous drawing, commissioned by a local upcoming band. This was SO much fun to draw, I had a great time.
Lacy, thank you so much for being so tough and sitting for this whole tattoo at once! Holy cow!
Balsamroot, desert paintbrush, nootka rose, maidenhair fern, bleeding heart, rose hips, globemallow, salal. From all the places she’s lived! This was so, so fun. Thanks so much!

Lol the Gila was a nightmare. Friends and I who endured weeks stuck in that hellhole know now to look at each other, shake our heads, and say, “the fucking Gila”. That’s all you can do.
