English Dan PART 2: The Frida Tattoo, Granville Street #Tattoos, #Vancouver

Recall part 1: meeting English Dan

I was so honored to have English Dan interpret my drawing of Baby Frida in a tattoo.  GLORIOUS!

The inspiration:

Mi Nana y Yo, 1937

I am in my nurse’s arms, with the face of a grownup woman and the body of a little girl, while milk falls from her nipples as if from the heavens.”

English Dan’s process:

Bliss!

In honor of my nephew, Henrik, English Dan added an H to my sock monkey tattoo:

And thank you, Maryellen, for being part of today!!!

Happiness:
