My half-skeletal saber-toothed cat done by Matt Driscoll during his guest spot at Off The Map in Easthampton, MA.
This is my 28th birthday gift to myself. I’ve always loved skeletons and bones (I have a winged cat skeleton on my other hip/thigh) and always had a great deal of interest in and admiration for Pleistocene critters. I’m of the firm opinion that tattoos should be awesome, and what could possibly be more awesome than a big-toothed kitty? It’s also somewhat an homage to paleo; I’ve been dealing with some pretty nasty chronic illnesses the past five years, and after a year and a half of eating paleo, I’m finally starting to show firm signs of recovery.
Matt is an awesome dude and a very talented artist, and I highly recommend him.
