Felicia Shares a Cool Peacock and an Homage to Her Favorite Horror Films

A few months back, I met a woman named Felicia in Penn Station. She has several tattoos, but she offered up this particular peacock from her forearm:

Felicia credited this to an artist named Thor at Three Monkeys Tattoo in downtown San Diego. I wasn't able to track down either the artist or the shop, so I may have misheard, but I guess that's beside the point.

In the end, we have an original peacock that differs from a lot of the more realistic attempts at peafowl we have seen in the past.

Felicia also sent me this piece a few weeks after meeting her:

Felicia explains:
"I told you I'd send over my favorite tattoo, which I had hidden under tights at the time. See attached for a photo of the tattoo after it was freshly done [top], and then a photo of what it looks like now [bottom]. This is the cover art for the film Suspiria, one of my all time favorite horror movies. I came up with the concept of creating a blackout piece behind my calf, and decided Suspiria was definitely a film worthy enough to cover such a large amount of space."

Thanks to Felicia for sharing her work with us here on Tattoosday!
