I got this tattoo from Pete Lavigne, at Jade Lotus in Burlington, Vt. I really wanted a sunflower, but I am not a big fan of colored tattoos, so I was nervous about getting it in black and white because I still wanted it to have the effect of being in color. I wanted it to look like a black and white photo of a colored sunflower, and I think Pete captured it perfectly :)
P.s the red around the edges is blood, not color. this is right after i got it done.
