I’ve been collecting tattoo art from Ricardo Compeàn at Tatu Tattoo in Chicago for the past 5 years— super nice guy and a truly talented artist.  He has done all of the work on both of my forearms; most recently he did the bee and honeycomb (just 1 day old in this pic!).  What Ricardo comes up with is always so much more than what I had imagined.  I am always so impressed.  For the honeycomb, I helped pick out a basic color palette and brought a small example of what I had in mind but he really improvised all the color combos and placement as he went along.  It was so fun to watch it develop as he filled it in!  I love his work and attention to detail.  I am proud to wear his art everywhere I go :)  You can see more of Ricardo’s work at http://www.13por13.com/ricardo
