Jessica's Gecko (Tattoosday Goes to Philly)

As I was wandering the aisles of the 20th Annual Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention (@villainarts) last month, I saw a lot of work in progress. I was excited to see one artist tattooing a gecko on the back of one woman's leg. 

I loved the design and asked them to please follow up with me, so I could share the finished work with Tattoosday readers. I was thrilled when the recipient of said tattoo, Jessica, emailed me a photo the following week:


This awesome gecko tattoo was created by Angel Caban (@angelcabanartwork) from Guardian Art Gallery (@guardianartgallery) in Orange, Connecticut.

Jessica explained a little bit more about the tattoo:
"I got the gecko because they are supposed to be lucky for rock climbers and it also has a knot, which we use a lot when we are rock climbing, in the design. Besides that, it had the bonus of a higher chance of being accepted by my parents because my mom likes geckos and lizards."
 Thanks to Jessica for sharing this awesome tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
