Jess' Tattoos

My roommate Jessica so graciously volunteered herself as a model yesterday evening for some tattoo photos. Tattooing has been in practice since neolithic times. The tattoo at the top is of Kokopelli, a fertility deity. He also represents the spirit of music. The middle tattoo is of the Clown of God from the Tomie dePaola children's book, " Clown of God." The flower tattoos in both the foreground and background of the bottom photo are of Calla Lilies, which actually isn't a lily at all. To read more about Calla Lilies click here.
