Hand lettering for my first tattoo design (!)

I'll ride the wave where it takes me (hand lettering)I guess it’s all who you know, I’m finding out.

I leave napkins I’ve doodled on at restaurants all the time, and one restaurant in particular apparently keeps the napkins and hangs them in the kitchen. Last month when we were there I left another doodle at the bar. The bartender recognized the art and said, “So you’re the one who draws those!” She commented about how just that day she had been looking at one I had left in March and was thinking about how she wanted a new tattoo with the kind of lettering I had drawn on the napkin. I offered to do the lettering for her for free if she was serious about getting the tattoo.

She was, and I did.

Here are the sketches I sent her.
