Breathe Tattoo

So I got my tattoo done at Tattoo Zoo in Victoria over 3 weeks ago and it is now finally healed. It was done by the artist Gerry and he does amazing work. Check out his website to see pics from his portfolio.

The shop was very tidy and I was pleased with the atmosphere. I showed Gerry the templates I had drawn out for my idea but mentioned they weren't quite exactly what I was looking for. He said he had an idea and drew up EXACTLY what I was trying to create in about 30 seconds. Definatley put any of my artistic abilities to shame. After showing me the example he asked if I wanted to get it done right then and there. (And here I thought I was just going to do research.) I decided to take the chance and agreed to get my first tattoo GASP!

I was so nervous, but I think that helped in the end. After we got started Gerry told me he didn't mention the pain factor before we got started because he knew the wrist was a sensitive area and didn't want to scare me off, but suprisingly it didn't hurt me at all. (probably the adrenaline kicking in but I wasn't complaining.)

After a quick 20 minutes we were already finished. And here is the final result




I would definatley reccomend Gerry and his shop to anyone looking to get a tattoo. After looking around Victoria pricing things out, it did end up being on the pricer side of the scale, but well worth it. This is my first tattooand it was a really good experience. Hope you all like it.

That is gorgeous lettering! I would love to know what particular font that is :) He did an excellent job! Enjoy your new tattoo :)

It is also very feminine to me. I love it!

I don't know what font it is as the sample I brought in to him was freehand, and he also did it free hand just writing it up in less than a minute right in front of me! he is extremely talented, I would reccomend this tattoo shop to anyone visiting vancouver island for sure.

I loved this so much that I actually tattoo'd it on my chest. If you would like to see a picture of how it turned out. Linda.htn@gmail.com

I'm sorry if you think I was copying you. But I wanted the word "breathe" tattoo'd on me. And I couldn't find any type of lettering that suited the image in my head. And this one completely caught my eye. Thank you so much for posting it. You gave me an everlasting tattoo I'll always cherish.

Beautiful Tattoo, perfect font that enraptured the very nature of the word! I also have a wrist tattoo of the word breathe...I got it with 9 dandelion seeds swirling around it...to remember that I live and breathe after having a respiratory arrest in 2009 when my lung collapsed whilst pregnant. 9 seeds to represent the 9 people that matter to me......
