images > tattoos

i did this in brixton, england.
a woman comes in with a tattoo on her neck. 'shortman's property' it says. she explains what she wants to do, but somewhere in the translation, shit gets all mixed up and confusing. i'm assuming she wants to cover it up, because i was raised around my mother, grandmother and two sisters, so i have this weird idea that woman respect themselves and (eventually) make good choices. totally not the case with this broad. she wanted me to cross out shortman, but make sure you could still read it. darken up the property, then add 'killah's' above it in bigger letters.
doing it in red knife slash like letters was totally my stroke of brilliance, cause, i mean, if you're gonna degrade yourself, might as well make it stylish.
