I’ve always wanted a Zero from Nightmare Before Christmas tattoo. It’s something that’s been on my tattoo wish list for a number of years. I could just never really find the time to have one done, or research what exactly I would want. Did I want just Zero? Did I want a scene? There’s a lot of planning that goes into a tattoo! But soon, everything just came together like it was simply meant to be. I recently became friends with Angela We listen to the same radio morning show and that’s how we connected over Twitter. Over the past few months, she’s started her tattoo apprenticeship! I’m sure you can see where this is going. I told her I’d be more than happy to have a tattoo done by her in order to help fill her portfolio and work on her skills. She was 100% down and we started thinking of what to do. I offered a few different ideas and we finally landed on Zero. She sent me a few different sketches before the big day and she really knocked it out of the park. It’s honestly more than I ever imagined!
Isn’t he beautiful? At the moment, she’s not allowed to work with color. Once she’s at that point, I’ll go back and we’ll add orange to the pumpkins and of course to his little nose! Angela was such a pleasure to work with. She had no problem making any tweaks or changes that I asked for. I always stress out about that but like she said, it’s on my body/skin! It should be exactly what I want. If I remember correctly, I think the tattoo only took maybe 2 hours? It wasn’t very long. She has such a nice touch which is important when it comes to tattoo artists. Some can be a little rough or heavy handed. She was very easy to talk to as well. Obviously, I’m super thrilled with my new tattoo and I can’t wait to have him finished around December. If you’re looking for new artists to follow, be sure to add her! You can find her on Facebook as well.
Oh yeah, she’s only a few followers away from 500 on IG! Help her reach that milestone please! And yes, all precautions were taken during the tattoo session. Don’t worry!
