Murphy and the Jackalope

I met Richelle last fall near Bowling Green in lower Manhattan. She had some really cool black and gay work, like this portrait of her dog, Murphy:

She referred to Murphy as her "little soulmate" and was happy to wear him on her arm.

She also shared this cool creature:

That is a Jackalope, which is a "mythical creature" that she associates with her childhood. Richelle added that she always "hoped [it] was real" and that it was "my version of a unicorn."

Richelle credited her artist, Anka Lavriv ( from Black Iris Tattoo (@black_iris_tattoo) in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, with her work. 

I love how the myth of the Jackalope lives on in her ink!

Thanks to Richelle for sharing her cool tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!
