Tattoo Redesign (Lotus)
Hi all! I have a tattoo on my back that I got when I was 18; I thought it was pretty kewl then but I think it's super bleh now. Please see it here: http://imgur.com/a/Ply48. It kind of looks like an agave plant. Or Pokemon grass. I messed up! I would love a medium to high complexity redesign of what I currently have. I will compensate for each individual piece, as long as they are indeed medium-high complexity. So multiple entires are welcome :)
The styles I am interested in are:
- mandala-style linework with black ink only (I love intricate mandalas)
- watercolor-style, somehow incorporating the existing black outline and blue color of the lotus (the watercolor can go beyond the black outline, or stay inside... your choice)
As for colors, I love blues (especially turquoise), purples, greens, and hints of bright pink. For inspiration/reference, my favorite black&white tattoo artist is Sollefe. She's a beast. Check out her stuff here: http://sollefe.com/. To get a sense of my own style and what I like, check out my Insta (but don't limit yourself to my style!): https://www.instagram.com/hajimmykim/
Not trying to put anyone down, but I am not looking for Ed Hardy or traditional ink styles. I love how these styles look on other people, and I really admire traditional tat artwork. I just want something different that is more reflective of my own style and personality :o)
Feel free to combine the above styles or only focus on one. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this! Looking forward to responses!
Side note: I am actually not looking into getting inked straight away. At the moment I am exploring ideas on how the cover up could work.

Hajin has a good ear for music. I've been producing events for a number of years now and have been immersed in the underground scene since the early 2000's. So trust me when I say Hajin has good track selection. I deny booking many DJs for lacking this one skill. Get her to beat match and we might have the next female superstar DJ!

I can't believe Hajin doesn't have a recommendation yet!
I'm honored to add the first of what I'm I'm sure will be an overflowing box of recommendations about Hajin.
The only hard part about meeting Hajin is knowing that she'll be back in Nicaragua soon! She's got a great energy to her and she's very enthusiastic about music. She asked great questions during our session and was very fun to work with!
Hopefully she come and grace us with her presence here in the Bay Area again soon! ^_^
