Owella writes of her two “Bills” caricatures by Saint Kele Idol at Aerochild Tattoos in Birmingham, Alabama,
People are gonna ask why… Mostly because they make me laugh.
Bill Cosby is the reason I understand the concept of time: around age three or four, on a car trip, I asked how much longer until we arrived to our destination. My mother told me it would be 30 minutes. I had no idea how long 30 minutes was, or what it felt like, so I asked her how long 30 minutes was. She responded: “one Cosby Show”, as it’s the show I watched the most as a child. The memories surrounding Mr. Cosby are part of a long list. All in all, his face makes me smile.
Bill Murray… he ended up being my all-time celebrity crush. He makes me laugh, he’s totally cute, and again, I’ve got tons of memories that he’s a part of. It just seemed right. And yes, they are going to remain in line-drawing form. No shading. That would look a tad too serious, I think!
Check out her amazing owl skeleton tattoo as well (which is still healing in this picture)… Even if you’re not into the tattoo above, I’m sure you’ll like that one, done by the same tattooist, but based on art by Chris Buzelli.
