Like just seeing a fin in the water, this is only a part of the whole tattoo, which wraps fully around the host's upper right arm.
It was a quick subway encounter, but I was able to get the photo on the 72nd Street platform and identify the artist, Kurt, formerly of Lola's Tattoos (@lolastattoos) in Bogota, New Jersey. Kurt now runs Hommage Tattoo (@hommagetattoo) in Ridgefield Park, New Jersey.
As for the woman who so graciously shared this fierce creature, I haven't heard back from her, so she will remain anonymous, for now.
Be safe out there, folks!
