this was a completely impromptu tattoo, and the watercolor was drawn on. We were both pleasantly surprised by the outcome.
I had a blast designing this piece! Matt originally wanted a simple, clip-art style guitar on his side, but after discussing it, he was willing to let me create something much more trippy and fun! I love combining realism with fantasy, and merging into the realm of surreal. Thanks for looking!
I had a blast designing this piece. As an extremely talented musician and custom bass/guitar builder, when Rick asked me to do a "bass clef" and something "space-y," I knew I had to nail it with a really awesome, music-inspired, trippy, science-y design. On the right hand side is a nebula in the shape of a Bass clef, with sound waves shooting out of it and over top of an oscilloscope, a device used to measure sound waves. thanks for looking!
