Kara is a close friend of ours and we both share the love for surfing. And when she came to the shop for a cover up tattoo her design idea wasn’t so surprising – it’s the great wave of course! Today Kara tells us what the wave means to her.
“This amazing tattoo by Frances is of a wave that reflects my appreciation for Japanese art, my passion for the sun, sea and surf, my respect for mother nature.
I had been contemplating for quite a while what kind of style wave should have and I was very happy with how Frances thoughtfully visualized and skilfully executed exactly what I wanted. The minute I saw her design, I instantly fell in love with it. The secret behind it, quite literally, is an old tribal-like tattoo I randomly picked off Yahoo way back in college – a reckless attempt for self expression. I saw it covered up, slowly disappearing under the new ink. It has practically vanished now and will be forever hidden under the face of the majestic wave I would never dare ride.”
