This was a very special tattoo for me to do on our friend Darren. He and his wife Jenn recently lost their teenage son Peyton (also in a previous post) who was born with a very unique heart.The close-up is from their doctor's drawing of it. His actual #ekg runs through the wings of the #phoenixbird that's rising up from the ashes and cinders. Thanks Darren for giving me complete design and placement control on this deeply personal tribute to your beloved son, it was such an honor! #phoenixtattoo #memorialtattoo #outoftheashes #hisbodyisgonebuthisspiritliveson #tributetattoo #crossroadstattoo #colortattoo #crossroadstattoostudio #birdtattoo #hearttattoo #hearttattoos #tattooiowacity #tattoocoralville #tattooiowa #tattoonorthliberty #universityofiowa #nationaldrypowder #allaprimaink #allaprima #allaprimablack #ilovemyjob❤️

A client contacted @blue.lockhart about getting his first tattoo. He’s an Organist who also fixes Organs as well. Originally his idea was a music note in a shape of a heart, but Blue wanted to customize it a bit more for him! Do you have any musical tattoos??

@blue.lockhart produced this memorial tattoo of a Dove (carrying his friend’s initials) for one of his clients, who lost one of his buddies. A perfect way to carry someone with you, forever.
