Birthday Tiger

Happy Birthday Tattoo Sue! Today is my good friend's birthday. She was the first to befriend me when I started my current job and we've been fast friends for 5 years. She is a fellow animal lover and has several cat themed tattoos. I'm inspired, and a 'tad' bit jealous, of them as I've been trying to save up for my own tattoos. Tigers are one of her favorites so I was thrilled to snag this image from Jessica Lynn.

My Creation

Image Detail
I colored the image with Copics.

Sue has a bit of a spitfire personality that can get her in sticky situations. I thought this verse was perfect as we often lean on each other when others try to put us down.
