Watership Down tattoo

Hello everybody! I am so happy to finally be able to post pictures of my Watership Down tattoo. It was tough, but I managed to wait through two sessions and two healing processes, and I can finally present my second, and second literary, tattoo.


(I don't know how to make the pictures smaller. But at least I figured out the cut!)


and for placement reference




The rabbit looks a little light towards his face due to a combination of lotion and lighting. I am so completely happy with it. It took thirteen hours over two sessions, eight hours just on the rabbit. The quote is the very last line in the book, done in a similar font to the first edition that the artist drew herself. We talked about doing a combination of photorealistic and watercolor styles. The flowers are wild primroses and cowslip.

Artist credit goes to Rabbit Abby, a travelling tattooist based in Des Moines, Iowa who was visiting The Body Shop in Appleton. Her blog is http://rabbitabby.com/home.html
