Cristo del Tatuaje Corazon (Christ of the Tattooed Heart)
Donated to the Tattoo Heritage Project to open a tattoo museum in Long Beach, CA. Sold at the fundraiser event.
9" x 12", mixed media, collage, assemblage. The work consists of a background of watercolor and ink on paper, photography, and digital illustration. These elements are collaged and glued on a wood backing, then decoupaged. The frame is made from repurposed wood which is hand sanded and stained with danish wood oil. The exterior hardware is distressed by soaking in a solution of white vinegar and lemon juice. The work is completed with my signature hot iron brand on the front, left side of the frame. Ready to hang on your wall with attached wire.
