More Tommy Montoya Portraits on Kate!

Last year, I met Kate in Penn Station and, what luck! She had some amazing work by acclaimed artist Tommy Montoya (known to many via NY Ink). See those portraits here.

Much to my surprise, I ran into Kate a year later, just last week, on the subway platform in my neighborhood out in Brooklyn. Initially, I couldn't place her - it is easier to remember people when I see them around the same location, and here we were, a year and a borough apart!

Nonetheless, she was generous yet again, and shared her two latest Tommy Montoya portraits of Marlon Brando (top) and Frank Sinatra (bottom) from the 1955 film Guys and Dolls:

I'm guessing this was the source photograph from which Montoya worked:

It's always amazing to see work from a great artist like Montoya, and I thank Kate for once again sharing her tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!
