I was getting it done at Fate Tattoo. My friend Renee (aka Flamestitch) and her husband Jack (or Matt) own it. Jack is also the man who did my tattoo. It was a great experience. Renee knew we would be fast friends with our love of anime/manga and Video games we just never really got a good chance to talk about it. This was perfect. An hour and half with him someone I completely trusted to do such a meaningful piece on me.
This is a Photo of the Interior, I would of taken an exterior except that it was pouring rain outside.
Personally I feel like the white rabbit is the epitome of my motto "jump into the deep end". The white rabbit is a thing of curiousness of interest that Alice jumps in the hole after and thank goodness she does for all the grand adventures she gets to witness and have. I feel like life should be looked at like that. Go ahead jump do it! If it interests you pursue it if you want to know more the only way you can is to follow it and learn about it. You won't live from the sidelines but by experiencing it yourself.
This particular illustration of the white rabbit is my favorite and one that I could spend hours gazing at. It has great lines to it and whimsy. I feel like the silliness of it overall is a good representation of myself.
This was about a quarter way through of the initial outline.
Here the Full outline is done before he started to work on the cross hatch details and color.
