“Tim Burton’s Navy Tat”

Tags: ,

My first commissioned painting for a fellow navy friend, an anniversary gift for his wife. 

They are a navy couple, in love with zombies and general spookiness, and both tatted. At first he asked for a painting of “The Kiss” but replaced with zombies. I came up with this sketch, that combined the navy, traditional american tattoos, and their love of dead things. I based what they wore on what they wore when they had their first marriage ceremony.

They were thrilled, to say the least :D
