I spotted this tattoo of Huey Freeman, from the comic strip The Boondocks, on the arm of Netty, at last June's Urban Tattoo Convention in Brooklyn.
What's remarkable about this tattoo is that it's not all tattoo. Netty explained that she had the tattoo inked around her birthmark. Look again:
Huey's hair is mostly birthmark. She credited Nelly, a travelling artist from L.A. (Instagram here), with skillfully blending Huey's hair into the pre-existing mark on her arm. Pretty nifty job.
Why Huey Freeman? Netty explained, "I love him and what he represents."
Thanks to Netty for sharing her cool tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
