Lynn explained that this piece depicts the Norse god Týr and the Fenris wolf.
"Týr got his hand bitten off by the Fenris wolf to prevent chaos from entering the world ... I kind of identify with that because I do massage therapy. I help people ... I injured myself helping people - I'm right-handed ... it's not quite the same thing, but [it's] the whole idea of self-sacrifice. You know, the greater good."
Lynn credits Willie Paredes, co-owner of Brooklyn Tattoo, with creating this piece.
