This is my barn owl tattoo. It started out as a small sketching assignment for one of my college design courses, so I decided to get it tattooed after I finished my degree. I wanted something sort of reminiscent of Art Nouveau mixed with a story book style. 

It’s about 95% finished here. I just need to get his feet shaded in and add a few more highlights.

I got this done by Stacey Walker at Exodus Ink Tattoo & Piercing in Chicago, Illinois.
