Amanda is a really cool tattooer from Tat-A-Rama, which is one of the oldest shops in Toronto. I worked there for over five years awhile back.  I added these roses and straight razor behind her existing tattoo.

Victor’s mother and child. This tattoo was done all in opaque greys rather than a wash, which is much harder to do realistic style things with.  I Wanted to try something new.  In person the finished product is much more graphic than your ordinary black and grey tattoo.
