Tattoo For My Brother

Pencil on paper – 297x420mm

This is a tattoo I designed for my brother. It’s torso-sized (A3 paper) and took a while. This drawing for me is particularly special because it incorporates so much of my brother’s life and I felt that in drawing it I got to know him a lot better. We spent time together discussing how the design would take shape and what he felt was important to include. My favourite part is in the bottom right-hand corner – the intertwined thistle and rose (the national flowers of Scotland and England).
