This design was developed from a sketch I did about growing up,
turning into a young woman from a teenager, with your heart tattooed on your sleeve and being innocent. I was listening to the Maccabees as I worked on the artwork and was inspired by their lyrics on my favourite love song ever 'Toothpaste kisses' and 'First Love'
I've left some prints without the blue Tattoo on and plan to design another one for the exhibition,
maybe inspired by Sting/ Eva Cassidy's Fields of Gold? or maybe something more decorative or traditional? off to sketch some ideas!
