My Fantastic Mr. Fox Tattoo

I got my Fantastic Mr. Fox tattoo… FINALLY!!!! After 11 months of talking about it and dreaming about it, I saved up and went in and got it done at Skinquake by the FANTABULOUS Colin McClain!! I cannot say enough about Colin’s dedication and skill. He designed this tat and decided on all the shading and I couldn’t be happier!!

Do not feel ashamed to have them replace it. This will be on your body permanently! Your artist wants to make you happy, so please tell them if you want to change something about your design.

It looks wonderful, it feels raw, and you walk away with your very own art piece! Honestly, I love my tattoos… they are a part of me and how I express myself. Wouldn’t change them for the world!
