Continued with this traditional piece. Today I added a pair of birds with the banner. But, it’s still a work in progress – there’s going to be a lot more work with this one, including wrenches & turbos and more background etc.
The symbol from the early Christians – heart, cross and anchor. Heart is for the Love/Charity, cross for Faith and anchor for Hope.
“The cross and anchor together were first used in Christian catacombs to represent hope based on the belief in Jesus Christ. The heart was added later to represent charity. The three symbols together represent the Christian tenants of faith, hope, and charity.”

With this customer we have a long road behind us, started with his first tattoos in 2002, if I remember correctly. Last year we did the two girls on his leg, the devilish one and the innocent one, both with nude boobs.

And I also wanted to make it a bit different, by adding the watercolourish background. So, here you go, this is how far we got today:
