Monika and Buddha (at the Empire State Tattoo Expo)

Last month at the Empire State Tattoo Expo (@nyempirestatetattooexpo), I met Monika, who was sitting in a booth watching her tattoo artist working on a client. She was kind enough to pause and let me photographic this stunning piece on her thigh:

This is the work of Marek Pawlik, AKA Marzan (@marzan_tattoo). He works in New York City out of Inkology Tattoo Art Gallery (@inkologyartgallery). Click through the hyperlinks to see more of his amazing work,

Monika explained that this thigh piece, which represents about twelve hours of work. Buddha is important to her because he was human, from a rich family, but decided to meditate and travel. A practitioner of yoga, and a Vegan, all of these values are connected with Buddha, and his moment of transformation and enlightenment.

It really is a stunning piece of work.

Thanks to Monika for sharing her lovely tattoo by Marzan here on Tattoosday!
