At the end of July, I coincidentally exited the A train at 14th Street at the same time as John, who was visiting from Nevada.
I had been admiring his sleeve on the train, but didn't have the opportunity to speak to him about it until after he got off the subway.
He referred to these creatures as "Root People":
It's an abstract collaboration with the artist, Rickett, at The Ruby Lantern in Carson City, Nevada.
They started working together in January of this year, and they're not yet finished with the whole sleeve. As you can tell, it's very unusual and has a very unique approach.
These designs are all on John's right arm, and I am particular to the female tree person above on his inner forearm.
Thanks to John for sharing his Root People here with us on Tattoosday!
