Tattooing cartoon elephants

I did this simple tattoo recently of 2 elephants facing each other and forming a heart shape with their trunks. This is the process I went through with the client:
First she explained her idea to me, she wanted a lower back piece, not too detailed, of two elephants and two palm trees forming a heart shape in the center. I then drew up a quick sketch for her to approve or disapprove. This was just a quick scribble to show what I had in mind. I explained to her that the image would be flipped, so that the elephants would be forming the heart shape that she wanted.


She liked the idea, so I cleaned up the sketch flipped the image and used the copy machine to get the size that she wanted.


Then we sat down and tattooed it.

And there you have it.
