The Birth of A Treeby KevinStiles

Traditional Art / Body Art / Body Modification / Tattoos©2011-2014 KevinStiles
In order for Alex to see the progression of her tree -
I photographed the various stages of its birth.
Far left is the freehand drawn tree...then, the outline.
And from there - different degrees of shading....culminating in the final piece.
