thirty.fourth..

tongan art

used the red pen to get a general idea of what he wanted to design



used the purple to better define the outline



here's a pic before he makes it official



this is mid-project



this is the finish product for now.its the basic outline



im really excited that im getting this tattoo.. ive been saving patiently for it.. i told the artist that i want tongan and only tongan art on me.. he specializes in polynesian art but i just want my culture.. i told him that i hoped it would feel like armor on me cause i feel that my culture is what keeps me grounded and in a sense protects me.. if you want to see some of his work he has a website..
