This tattoo belongs to Lisa, who I spotted last month during the Tour de Bronx. I passed her right before we reached the rest stop at Clason Point. The break in the ride allowed me to talk to her about her tattoos and she offered up the one above. I've seen a lot of sugar skull tattoos, but never a cat sugar skull.
Lisa credited her friend Shroomy, who tattoos out of his garage in California.
"I knew that I wanted some sort of skull. I knew that I wanted some sort of cat and so I put the two ideas together and I've always been a fan of Mexican art styles and sugar skulls, so I thought up my own with the artist and my boyfriend ... we added some things on the spot and that's what happened.'You can see some other Day of the Dead ink that has appeared previously on Tattoosday here.
Thanks to Lisa for sharing this cool tattoo with us here on Tattoosday and helping us celebrate the Day of the Dead!
