Tattoo Design for/with Lashay @SensiblySutpid Basnight, by @SamaxAmen

Here's an illustration I did for my internet fam Lashay Basnight. We have been internet peeps for years, so I was very pleased when Lashay inquired about illustrating the tattoo she wanted...

My design is spiritual. It stood out to me via the book of Revelations. It is a woman wearing a crown of 12 stars dawning locs. Her pregnant stomach is the sun and she's sitting Indian style on the moon. I drew her holding the Roman numerals for 144,000. Which represents the pure souls on earth.
I can't BEGIN to tell you how helpful it is to have a solid description AND a drawing to go with it before starting a piece. Half the work was already done.  All I had to do was draw, which... you know... I'm pretty good at.
Here's the finished piece that I sent her on Sunday morning...
In the mid-afternoon, I received this photograph of Lashay's nifty new tattoo! I have done a few drawings for tattoos for customers over the years, and it never gets old! I can't think of a more satisfying feeling than knowing that people want tattoo my artwork on their skin. LaShay will be telling stories about this drawing for the rest of her life!

Anyways, I hope you like it!
