This is my new thigh piece, of James and the Giant Peach. There is multiple reasons behind it but the most prominent is for my Grandma Lynda. I had an eventful childhood. My father was a drug addict and my mom tried her best to raise us alone. My Grandma would read to me every single night before bed. She read me countless books but the one I remember the most is Road Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach. It was my first favorite book. She took me to see Tim Burton’s adaption of the movie after we finished. I loved the movie as well. Without my Grandma reading to me, I feel my life would’ve taken a very different turn. She inspired my love for reading and in turn my love for school (I’m now an English major). My Grandma means the world to me. I ha her choose her 3 favorite characters from the book.
It was done in Denver, CO. At Kaze Gallery tattoo by Sandi Calistro who has been tattooing for 11 years. She’s insanely talented and made the whole thing amazing. She was so nice and down to earth and adorable to boot. She was so friendly, too. I had so much fun and she finished this session in 3.5 hours. Super quick and super amazing work! I couldn’t be happier, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it.
