Christina’s new Tattoo
I was happy to design and tattoo this custom foot tattoo of a venus flytrap that represents Christina’s home town at the beautiful Carolina coast. Christina was the ideal client, she sat through this tattoo without a the slightest flinch. She is one tuff Marine. Semper Fi. This is the second tattoo that I’ve done for my friend, She also has an impressive half sleeve by the talented Marco Sullivan.
“The Venus Flytrap (also Venus’s Flytrap or Venus’ Flytrap), Dionaea muscipula, is a carnivorous plant that catches and digests animal prey—mostly insects and arachnids. Its trapping structure is formed by the terminal portion of each of the plant’s leaves and is triggered by tiny hairs on their inner surfaces. When an insect or spider crawling along the leaves contacts a hair, the trap closes if a different hair is contacted within twenty seconds of the first strike. The requirement of redundant triggering in this mechanism serves as a safeguard against a waste of energy in trapping objects with no nutritional value.” Wikipedia
