Default Got my calves done...

on Wednesday. The plan was always to get little scenes done on my calves with a rope frame. Ended up going with a whale as I'm fascinated by evolution, love how all life is connected, and the fact that whales have leg/pelvis bones (a remnant from their land dwelling ancestors) I think makes their skeleton really interesting.

I'm really pleased with how they turned out. Done by Dave Falconer (@danglingwrongeyes on IG) at Skins & Needles in Middlesbrough.

This was the first time I'd been tattooed in over 2 years, I'd almost forgotten what it felt like (not very nice, even if it was only the calves!).

Looks great! Also, I read an interesting article about whale anatomy after seeing your post, so thanks for that.

Haha, you're welcome! If you're interested by that kind of thing, check out the recurrent laryngeal nerve in the giraffe!

They look brilliant, and I never knew that about whales!
