Where The Starry Night Sidewalk Ends

I met Christopher last summer at the Coney Island Mermaid Parade (@mermaidparade). He shared this cool tattoo:

This familiar-looking imagery is inspired by Vincent Van Gogh's The Starry Night. Christopher told me that, when he was a kid, he used to carry around a Starry Night poster, so he has had an affinity for the artwork for a long time. What's particularly cool about this piece is that, on the inner part of his arm, it merges into other familiar imagery:

That is the cover art from Shel Silverstein's classic book Where the Sidewalk Ends.

Christopher credits the tattoos to an artist named Pee Wee in Manhattan.

Thanks to Christopher for sharing his cool tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!
