The work is by Tig Quest at Big Bang Ink in Brooklyn.
When I met Katrina, it was very loud, so I didn't get much information, other than her artist's info.
The message of the tattoo is clear, however - "The idea is to die young as late as possible." flows across the banner behind the decapitated woman in a ball gown. The quote is attributed to British anthropologist Ashley Monatgu.
Thanks to Katrina for sharing her tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
