Tattoos on or around the forearm area

Pocket compass and roses

A small pocket compass and roses tattoo done in a predominantly blue theme on the inside of a girls forearm.

Though this is in a semi traditional tattoo style, I kept with a much thinner and lighter line for the outer edge, used almost no line inside the tattoo, and didn’t use any blacks for shading. The result is a traditional look, but with a softer/prettier appearance than normally seen in such a style.

This tattoo was from my Port Angeles Tattooing The Blues tattoo project.

Grim Reaper

The Grim Reaper, sometimes called the Angel of Death. He is a skeletal figure carrying a large scythe and clothed in a black cloak with a hood.
I am not sure what causes our fascination with this grim specter, but he is a figure that many are drawn to.

This particular Reaper is one of the my favorites when it comes to my own tattooing.
The reason for that was the shade style the client went with (true grey) went well with the imagery so I had a lot of fun doing it.
