Back in June, in Herald Square, I ran into a couple named Marjo and Jon, who were visiting from the UK. Both were tattooed, but it was the Marjo's half-sleeve that really brought down the house:
Marjo credited an artist named Sergi Besa at a shop called Nine, in Brighton, with this amazing tattoo work.
At the inner part of the upper arm near the shoulder, is an amazing compass rose:
I only wish the sun had not been so bright, as it washed out some of the color in my photos.
Marjo explained that she had the original concept for the tattoo and Sergi did the rest.
Truly a remarkable piece of work!
Thanks to Marjo for sharing her lighthouse sleeve with us here on Tattoosday!
UPDATE: Jon's tattoo appeared in December 2012 here.
