Mermaid Tattoo by Suspiria

After 3 sittings and 10 hours my beautiful mermaid tattoo from Suspiria is finally complete!  It was a long process but totally worth it.  I am so happy with how it turned out and I love looking down at my leg and seeing my beautiful mermaid.  This tattoo for me symbolizes where I am at this moment.  I am going through a lot of changes in my life right now and beginning a new chapter and I love that this gorgeous creation is the marker of that change for me.  I thought I would share some start-to-finish photos of the process of getting this tattoo.  We made a lot of subtle changes between the original sketch and the final completed tat and it has been really fun watching it grow and change.  I cannot thank the amazing Suspiria enough for gracing me with this beauty.

Mermaid Tattoo: Almost Completed!

After 5 more painstaking hours at the tattoo shop my beautiful mermaid is almost complete! Thanks again to the wickedly talented Suspiria for putting this ink on my body.  I’m so in love with her!  Anyone have a good suggestion for a name?
