Hummingbird

P1200007-1

Inspired by the story of the "I do what I can" hummingbird,  I had this image tattooed on my right calf today by Ness at Diablo Art. This photo is taken only a few minutes after I got home, so yes that is blood leaking down under the plastic wrap.

I'm still working on the Bondi tattoo. My friend Muz lent me an excellent little book on Indian art of the Northwest Coast that shows some of the typical renderings of different animal totems. I've sketched out one image already, but will try a few more before I get a more skilled artist to clean one up for me.
