Tina's Lovely Lace Tattoo

Earlier this summer, I was standing on the subway platform at 34th Street, waiting for the A Train, when I noticed an incredible tattoo on the hand of the woman sitting on the bench next to me. I introduced myself to Tina, and she allowed me to take pictures of this very unusual tattoo:

That's the outside of the wrist. Here is the inside part:

Tina credited this work to Laura Babsie Gardner, formerly of Kitchens' Ink Tattoo & Art Gallery in Denver, Colorado. Laura is currently working out of Madeline Hair Design in Denver.

She explained to me that Babs had told her she "always wanted to do a lace doily tattoo and I said 'Sure, let's do it.' "

It's a really interesting application of grey and white ink.

Thanks to Tina for sharing this wonderful tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
