Olenna Tyrell and a Glass of Wine (2019 NY Empire State Tattoo Expo)

Earlier this month, I met Jayne at the 2019 NY Empire State Tattoo Expo (@nyempirestatetattooexpo).

I was walking past the booths and stopped dead in my tracks. The tattoo Jayne was getting was still in progress, but we chatted and she sent me a photo of the finished product after the weekend was over.
This is the tattoo:

In case you don't know, this is a portrait of Olenna Tyrell, a much-beloved character, portrayed by Diana Rigg, on Game of Thrones.

Jayne summed up her experience of the tattoo:
Inspired by the grace, wit and grit of Lady Olenna Tyrell, I wanted a portrait of her for several years. I entrusted my vision to Francisco Sanchez (@franciscosanchez_tattoo), co-owner of Dark Age Studio (@darkagetattoostudio) in Denton, Texas, to design and ink the tattoo. The result, detailed black and gray with the pop of deep red, captures the badass Tyrell matriarch, always ready to share a glass of wine.
This is the tattoo in progress, when I first happened to meet Jayne:

Jayne also noted:
"The wine glass is straight.  Just had my arm bent.  Drives me crazy bc it looks like it's jacked and Frank did such a great job, I hate there to be any concerns with his work."
Thanks to Jayne for sharing her awesome tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
