luke davis tattoo

This is my completed arm piece, done by Luke Davis at Iron Works Tattoo in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Μεράκι is a Greek word without a true English counterpart, but it roughly translates into ‘the soul, creativity or love you put into something’ or 'the essence of yourself that is put into your work’. Being a photographer constantly trying to create my own style in my work, as well as a person of Greek origin, it perfectly struck a chord with me. I couldn’t be more happier with how this turned out!
