This is my beautiful jellyfish, right after it was completed. It’s my first tattoo and the beginning of an aquatic piece that (at the moment) will include shark bites somewhat encompassing the head of the jellyfish and an anchor that flows perfectly with the rest of the piece (with more to come!) I’ve always had a love for water and all things aquatic (plus I’m a pisces) and I figured a good start would be something beautiful but deadly that’s been around on this earth for millions of years. This turned out better than I ever could have hoped it to and I’m in love with it. I find it funny that already so many people have called me crazy for making this my first tattoo, especially with the size and the placement, but it felt right and I think it’s perfect. I let Nick have his fun with this and in case anyone was wondering, yes, rib tattoos hurt really really bad, haha.
This was done by the fantastic Nick D’Angelo at The Black Pearl Tattoo, Lockport, NY.
