Erin gets a new tattoo!

Went with my friend, Erin, yesterday to sit with her while she got a new tattoo. The piece is absolutely amazing!!!

What I love about the design is that it incorporates so many elements (water, landscape, budha temple, trees, Mount Fuji) and still is light and flows perfectly with the curves of her body.

She went to see one of the best tattoo artists in Los Angeles, John Saletra, and what is also so amazing is that she just presented to him some Japanese art to give him some design ideas, and he then hand-sketched the entire piece onto her body without tracing anything, and without even following one specific image. He just took the elements that she liked and created something so perfect to fit her body And her piece is 100% unique. Not based on any common flash picked off the wall. He is genius.

He also happens to be a good friend of mine and someone I surf with.
