Timing is everything when it comes to successful inkspotting. Luck is essential. The turning of one's head can result in missing an amazing tattoo.
Case in point:
I met Jenny and her friend Kate by chance coming out of the subway one day.
Jenny has six tattoos, including this phoenix on her left forearm:
But it was this peacock, further up her arm, that really amazed me:
Generally, the peacock represents self-worth and valuing oneself. In Jenny's words, more poignantly, "be happy with your feathers."
The peacock was tattooed by Poohki at Steady Tattoo in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The phoenix was inked by Trevor Kennedy at the same shop, although he now works in California.
Thanks to Jenny for sharing such wonderful tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!
