This is my Rainbow Fish tattoo inspired by the illustration from the children’s book “The Rainbow Fish” by Marcus Pfister. It was my favorite book when I was little, about the importance of selflessness. I acquired the idea to transcribe my favorite fish into a tattoo when I was about 16 years old. After sitting on the idea for 5 years (I am now 21 almost 22), I finally broke down and got the work done. This is, in fact, my second tattoo, however it is the first piece of artwork I have gotten that involved shading and color. A humongous thanks to my artist, Nick Stambaugh, at the new Aces High Tattoo location in my hometown Jupiter, Florida. He was the mastermind behind the watercolor effect as it translated to skin.
