Clinton's Colorful Chest Piece (at the NYC Tattoo Convention)

At the NYC Tattoo Convention earlier this month, one of my favorite pieces belonged to Clinton, who was kind enough to remove his shirt and share his work:

This was done by Jen Carmean from Monarch Tattoo in Newfoundland, New Jersey.

Clinton explained how this piece came to fruition:
"...The black part of my shoulders, I got ten years ago and then, about a year and a half ago, we did just the shoulder, expanded off of it, and then, in the past two months we did the whole chest part ... the shoulders were three sittings, about ten or twelve hours and then I think the middle came out to about another twelve hours ... it kinda represents my art ... people are always like, oh get your own art tattooed on you, but I pick my art apart and I couldn't do that, so it's kinda like what I'm into artwise but [Jen's] vision of it. I said 'Jen, I like patterns and eyes and wings' ... this was her interpretation of what I wanted."
You can check out Clinton's instagram here.

Thanks to Clinton for sharing his chest piece with us here on Tattoosday!
