This lion is on the side of the leg of Vanessa, in a spot where you don't normally see a tattoo.
She told me that this was tattooed by Oba (@omoori) at Push Tattoo Studio (@pushtattoos) in Wilmington, Delaware.
Vanessa explained that this was part of a set of matching tattoos she got with her best friend. As she tells it, the lion matched her friend's personality, and this leonine friend designed the art.
I asked Vanessa what her friend got. She explained that her nickname was Goldfish, so that's what her friend got to compliment her lion.
Thanks to Vanessa for sharing her cool tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
