Nautical Bonsai Sleeve
Gabe wanted a sleeve with various subjects to symbolize some of his passions and pursuits in life, and we settled upon a neotraditional nautical theme. A true warrior, he twice endured approximately 16 hours of tattooing over 3 consecutive days in order to finish his sleeve in only two trips to Austin. After enduring several laser sessions at my request to lighten some older tattoos on his arm, he took what little time away that he could afford from Navy flight school to journey to Art Realm Tattoo. I truly appreciate Gabe's dedication, strength, and trust! An inspiring tattoo journey and a really fun project.
