have you heard of henry darger? he was an artist & custodian who wrote an epic fantasy novel:
the story of the vivian girls, in what is known as the realms of the unreal, of the glandeco-angelinnian war storm, caused by the child slave rebellion.
indeed, if that is the title, it must be an epic.
anyway, this tattoo is inspired by the drawings of the vivian girls, who were eight sisters.
it reminded me that tattoos are beautiful, and that always wanted another.
