Today I am to share an art piece with you it the remit was an art piece (painting, drawing, sculpture, etc.) but I think my art piece may not be what you are expecting. I was going to share my Orange Noodle by Jamie Hewlett but I have decided to go for some wearable art as it is more personal to me seeing as I am wearing it.. I got my first tattoo at the age of thirty it was a tiny heart with the letter B in, it was to celebrate the birth of my son. I got a little red devils when he hit the terrible twos and I didn’t look back after that. My favourite piece is my right leg almost my whole leg is covered but as the lower half is still a work in progress I am going to share my upper leg with you. I have the most beautiful bat, I love bats and always have done so having this is very special to me. It was also important to have the right person putting it onto me. I find the right person a very, very talented guy in my town and he drew it on freehand and the first sitting took three hours and the end result was this
The next step was to have the background filled in and that did not take as long about an hour and a half maybe a little more but it really finished it off to perfection . The end result is just so perfect for me.
Now I know tattoos are not everyones cup of tea but I love them and my bat is my favourite piece on me and as I am now up to 27 ish that is saying something. I also realise many would not consider it art but I do and I guess that is what counts.
Ps. Seeing as this post was about Art I am adding this as I think my friend Jude is a fabulous artist and I cannot wait to commission her to immortalise my girl Molly.
