Traditional Chest Piece

Traditional Tattoo on my good  friend Doli.

When I was helping him move back to the Bay, we decided to get some sushi in the city and check out some shops. We went in to Tattoo City to check out some old flash and portfolios.  At that point Doli and I were discussing different ideas for his chest piece. I think he was a little jealous of my eagle. We talked about all kinds of ideas skulls,  snake, goat head, a Slayer theme. Doli is definitely metal at heart. But his big round eye light-up when he sees that bold bright Traditional American flash. I ended up getting my hand tattooed that day by Brian Bruno, forcing Doli to stair at that old flash for two hours. His mind was made up! “Dan I want a Traditional chest piece with a ship.” So I went to the drawing board and this is what I came up with. Now I need to add on to my Chest piece.

Thank you Doli
