Today I got to do this super fun #watercolourtattoo over a scar on one of my lovely customers. It’s so great turning something that someone dislikes into something pretty ⭐️ #wctattoos #hearttattoo #illustration #tattoo #tattooartist #tattoolookbook #tattooapprentice #colourtattoo #paint #drphmartins #skinzophrenictattoos #scartattoo #custom #girly #girlswithtattoos
