This is a tattoo that I designed for a really good friend of mine, Sarah. I met her while she was visiting Toronto for a summer; best Irish girl I've ever met! Anyway, she's now living in Wellington, New Zealand and doesn't want to forget how much she fell in love with it when she has to go back home to Ireland. So this tattoo is designed to remind her of her time in Wellington.
She wanted a sort of old-school piece in blue and greys and specified there be a lot of details. I definitely had an amazing time doing this one, as sea creatures are, like, my favourite things to draw and I never get around to drawing them myself.
