This piece is something of a combination of a few things I don’t really get to see as much being in Indianapolis. When I was learning to tattoo in Albuquerque, Chicano imagery was something I saw all the time and it wasn’t hard to fall in love with it. So when I sat down to draw a lady head, I thought this might be a good time to revisit that old love and try my own hand at drawing a beautiful chola and in traditional Chicano style, I wanted it to be in black & grey. Since I had been working on a large sheet of flash on coquille paper, I decided that would be the best approach, as painting in soft black & grey isn’t one of my strongest areas. Coquille paper is something I’ve always been really interested in since first seeing it in Aaron Coleman’s Immaculate flash books. Since then I’ve been trying it out less than sparingly, but just recently I ordered a big patch of paper and I’ve been using it quite a bit. I’m fairly pleased with the end result and may even make a run of prints of it. Hopefully you like it and thanks for looking!
P.S. Sorry for the watermark at the bottom, but you know, the internet.
Hey! So I'm thinking about potentially getting a tattoo from you- should I just call Irish Ink? ^^
