Anna's Amazing Half-Sleeve Honors Her Brothers and Where They Have Lived

Yesterday we saw work from an Italian artist, today we are admiring ink I spotted on the subway last month that originated in Sweden.

I met Anna on the West 4th Street platform and hopped on the F train toward Brooklyn just to have a moment to talk to her and find out a little about her tattoos:

Anna explained the concept as a family-related sleeve. The two faces that are featured in the hot air balloons are portraits of her brothers, Mike and John. The maps that appear as background represent many of the places they have lived, like Japan, Peru, and Puerto Rico.

She credited this stunning work to Vilda Nordström at Vild@art in Vårgårda, Sweden. Check out their Facebook page here. Vilda's work is very impressive!

Thanks to Anna for sharing her tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
