The last photo I took was of this mermaid, on Brianna:
Briana explained that the mermaid illustration upon which this tattoo is based came from an old alchemical text and that it is, historically, one of the first recorded mermaid drawings. Check out this reference for further detail.
Briana also pointed out that the mermaid is lactating and, in essence, feeding the world.
I particularly love this tattoo because of its linework and that it is not typical of your normal color mermaid tattoos.
Brianna credited the work to Kat Fedora (@katfedora) from Bang Bang Body Arts (@bangbangbodyarts) in Northampton, Massachusetts.
Thanks to Brianna (and all the other cool people) for sharing this awesome tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
