Jessi's Musical Bird

I met Jessi at the beginning of the month, while walking up 8th Avenue.

She shared this really cool tattoo on her forearm:

Yes, it's a bird, but it is a design created entirely out of musical notations and dynamic markings. The sharp symbol (hashtag/pound sign) represent the feet. The forte marking (the f) is the wing. The crescendo (the < shape) is the beak. The head and eye are created by the symbol for fermata, or pause. Finally,  the slur, which forms the underbelly, is represented by an arc.

"I'm not a music major, I'm just a music fan," Jessi explained, adding that she saw the design online and "stole" the idea for her own tattoo.

Jessi had this done at Neptune Tattooville (@neptunetattoo), but does not recall which artist did the work.

Thanks to Jessi for sharing this cool tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
