Beautiful tattoo, but it's not gonna age well. Small ink tends to bleed together over time.

Ok I need to get something like this! I was raised in Pittsburgh (or you can say the city is my "roots") But now I live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, which I believe will forever be my home. :)

I hope that's henna otherwise I would hate to think of all the pain she endured only to have them fade away! Very cool anyway...

Is this the same motive like the tattoo on the feet and the hands a few posts above?

it's not cling film people, it's a special type of plaster made to stick to the skin, so the tattoo underneath can start healing without risk of anything getting into it. as a tattoo artist, I NEVER use antibiotic creams, just natural coco butter or simply vaseline... adding too much stuff isn't good for a tattoo, the best is to let your body heal up mostly by itself.

Interesting, but topography is not architecture.
