Puppy Portrait

Last December I did a painting called “Puppy Priestess“, so I was quite happy to get this little note from Gally99 about his tattoo, done by Oey at Sacred Tattoo in Oakland, CA. He writes,

“A picture of my dog reminded me of Virgin Mary images… I gave Oey the picture, and a few weeks later he showed me the drawing and we started the tattoo.”

Edit: While I’m writing about dog tattoos, here’s a cute Dia de los Perros tattoo by Nochi at Industrial Tattoos in Berkeley, CA (a la the robot themed one, that’s since been updated).
