Katrina and the Headless Victorian

One of the last photos I took at the NYC Urban Tattoo Convention back in June was this tattoo on Katrina:

The work is by Tig Quest at Big Bang Ink in Brooklyn.

When I met Katrina, it was very loud, so I didn't get much information, other than her artist's info.

The message of the tattoo is clear, however - "The idea is to die young as late as possible." flows across the banner behind the decapitated woman in a ball gown. The quote is attributed to British anthropologist Ashley Monatgu.

Thanks to Katrina for sharing her tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
