My client Nick wanted to pay tribute to his childhood home and family roots in Florida with some of his most powerful memories from growing up, from the sweet to the painful. These included living on and around citrus farms, and dealing with the ever-present stinging insects like mosquitos and velvet ants. We had fun thinking of all the ways to depict oranges and managed to include every aspect except for the seed form. These photos show the tattoo healed after almost one year.
