Bang! Bang!

Bang! Bang!, originally uploaded by slushbox.

I tattoo a lot of my paintings, and sometimes I tattoo something and love it so much i have to paint it too. This was a collaboration of both. I had the sketch worked up about three months ago transferred to canvas and ready to paint but it kept getting delayed and I had a little creative block on it. My friend Jenna saw the sketch and wanted it as a tattoo. So basically I had no idea what colors or how this was gonna be painted so i ended up working out the colors as we tattooed her. We went balls out on the bright pink hair and the style of the tattoo was very smooth and pop realistic, So i carried as much of that as possible into the painting. So glad we rocked out the pink hair. Thanks again Jenna!
