Beautiful piece done by Betty! This was her client’s first tattoo! “Welcome to the world of tattooed people” as Betty would say

Girls and deer. They’re my two most popular commission requests. Last month I even drew a girl with antlers. Anyway, here’s my latest commission piece - a deer! Hope you like.x

My new tattoo that I got with my friends in Florence at the tattoo convention there. The deer is in memory of my grandfather who passed away this past year, and I was unable to attend his funeral since I was away (being in the military and all..). But it’s not only dedicated towards my grandfather, who was a man who encouraged me to do so many things… but also to myself. It represents everything that I’ve gone through since I left home. I’ve learned to grow my own “horns” and depend on only myself a lot of the times. That’s why I chose a stag and not a simple doe. Because I’m not really a doe symbolically. I’m in a warrior career field, and work among men. I’m a strong and independent woman. The color red is very powerful at the same time, very elegant, and that’s what I was going for. 
Tattoo was done by Natalie Nox of Doctor Pepper Tattoos.
