For our series, “Flash Us,” we ask some of our favorite tattoo artists to create a design based on a classic theme—naked ladies. This week, Fernando Lions sent us the above. Fernando tattoos out of Flyrite Tattoo in Brooklyn, and you can follow him here.
Years tattooing: 5
Tattooing out of: Flyrite Tattoo in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
First tattoo I ever did: “It was on the side of one of my dearest friends—Dan Santoro’s knee. It was a tiny cartoon roach from the “Flash from the Past” book. It’s still there. Ha. I remember feeling the machine take off on me on the first line I pulled! Haha. Thank you, Dan, love you homie.”
