Printmaking, Part 2: Tattoos

My friends are always giving me ideas for jewelry, and recently our friend Josh suggested I make jewelry from tattoo designs. I was picturing Hell's Angels in my head, and skulls and dragons are not my thing and I thought Josh was joking, so I thanked him politely and then forgot about it. Then we were at a booth at Bele Chere with artists doing henna tattoos and I'm all like, "Wouldn't it be cool to make jewelry out of those designs," and of course Josh was right there to let me know that's what he originally meant. Now I'm full of ideas to carve into Speedycut blocks, but maybe that's a procrastination tactic - I probably should use the ones I already have first.
