Tattoo Me?...365 Day of Drawing..

I set up a still life yesterday of skull, ink quill, pot and rose, especially for the three tattoo artists in my class. The are great and an inspiration to ME. We have a mutual repsect for each others' art skills.
Of course, now I want a tattoo.

I did a quick sketch in class of the set up and finished it later in the day moving the position of the skull more to the side.

6"x 8"
