Rose and Violet

Rose and Violet tattoo design and sketches – final design (right) ink and watercolour on card, 85 x 55 mm, 2012.

My first tattoo design! This is a commission for a mother whose daughters’ middle names are Rose and Violet. I’m really happy with the flowers and the overall design, including the heart-shaped violet leaf.

As I was sketching, the violet slowly transformed itself (quite inadvertently) into a pansy but I changed it back again for the final design.
