Added a sleeve and a half to this metamorphosis and life cycles of cicadas and butterflies piece. Based on work from 17th century botanical illustrator Maria Sibylla Merian, who used illustration as a tactic to be the entomologist she was forbidden From. Thanks Chris! See the whole thing on @tenderfootstudio ! (Star not by me)
The story is simple. I was having horrible chest pain and trouble breathing earlier this year, so I had a heart ultrasound. Seeing my own heart beating was the coolest thing I had ever experienced, so I got a tattoo. And my heart is totally fine :)Done by Elijah Cole at Cicada Tattoo in Seattle. He’s rad.
