Tattoo done by Gary at Sacred Art in Manchester, UK
“For anybody interested here’s a little bit about it. I wanted a rocket and a ship tattoo for about two years but couldn’t pick a design. Then one day I decided to merge the two, but how? Well after many adjustments and changes it came out like this. The Earth is a stencil that my artist used however everything else was taken from my design with some enhancements made by my artist.
This being my first tattoo I thought I’d share with other tattoo newbies my experience. The idea was circling through my mind for a while and even when I drew it out I kept it pinned next to my bed for months just to make sure I never grew bored of it or wanted to change it. In terms of picking my artist - I went with the same man who did my dads’ sleeve because I’d met him a couple of times. I’d seen some of his work and I felt he was the right man for the job.”
