House No. 186: The Burrow, Part 1


House No. 186: The Burrow, Part 1

186/365; 07/05/11

Today I started a collaboration on a house with Amy Black of Trademark Tattoo.

 
The Burrow is the home of the Weasleys, a wizarding family in the Harry Potter books. Their house is a mishmash described as looking pieced together and held up by magic. It reminds me of my crazy house, and in many ways, my life. Molly Weasley is my favorite character from the books. She is a fierce and awesome mother figure.
 
 
I started with a pencil sketch based on the descriptions of the Burrow in the Harry Potter books, and here you can see Amy’s notes and additions on my sketches. I can’t wait to see what Amy comes up with and the finished piece on me!

  6. It is going to be at the top of my right arm and shoulder, Jess. Amy is going to be tattooing my husband with another one of my houses too.
