Added a memorial extension for Larry Jenkin's wife to the existing work. Here is his story behind everything: "This tattoo is an illustration of the beginning and end of a story that took 44 years to write. It was a story that I started in 86’ at a tattoo parlor in Redford, Chris was with me. It was a 12 year anniversary gift for Linda. The story began on an envelope. Anyone who saw the picture board saw the drawing of this tattoo...it was my first tat. It starts with a banner that reads ‘Desire’, thats what this 18 year old felt for a 17 year old girl. Then came the flame about 4 months later with a torch growing out of love and the flowers being Linda and her bridesmaid and me with my best man. The 2 flowers at the under her name are our 2 kids and the frame around it shows is our family circle. Linda passed away March 20, 2018. This is a tribute to Linda and the end off our story. Rest in Eternal Peace. I Love You." Closer shot in comments.
Did this piece to cover a scar for Melissa over the weekend. Closeup in comments.

Roscoe & Nick on duty! With 46 years in the business between us at a family business started when we were mere babes, we will perforate you.
Fervently resisting the trend to turn tattooing mainstream & boring.
