Pressure (WIP - Linework) by Lynsye Medalia
Clear

Currently unavailable for purchase



Original is Sharpie Pen on Canson Drawing Paper

This is the preliminary linework for a new tattoo design. My little sister called me and asked if I would work on a new design for her. She said that she wanted almost a half sleeve. She wants it to go from the top of her left shoulder to her elbow. She wanted two swallows holding a ribbon in between them with some song lyrics printed on the ribbon. The top swallow would be fire colors – to stand for her, and myself, being a Leo. The bottom swallow would be water colors – to stand for our mom being an Aquarius.

I am going to try to get the coloring done this weekend and will post an update as soon as I can! :)

The lyrics are from the song Pressure off of Paramore’s first album All We Know Is Falling_. Watch the video HEREB-0l6Qc They say “Some things I’ll never know & I had to let them go”

Pressure by Paramore

Tell me where our time went
And if it was time well spent
Just don’t let me fall asleep
Feeling empty again

Cause I fear I might break
and I fear I can’t take it
Tonight I’ll lie awake feeling empty

I can feel the pressure
It’s getting closer now
We’re better off without you
I can feel the pressure
It’s getting closer now
We’re better off without you

Now that I’m losing hope
And there’s nothing else to show
For all of the days that we spent
Carried away from home

Somethings I’ll never know
And I had to let them go
I’m sitting all alone feeling empty

I can feel the pressure
It’s getting closer now
We’re better off without you
I can feel the pressure
It’s getting closer now
We’re better off without you

Without you

Some things I’ll never know
And I had to let them go
Some things I’ll never know
And I had to let them go
well I’m sitting all alone feeling empty

I can feel the pressure
It’s getting closer now
We’re better off without you

I can feel the pressure
It’s getting closer now
You’re better off without me

    What and awesome sister you are :0) and what a wonderful tribute to your mom….the design is wonderful….i’ve often contemplated what tattoo design I would get……well now i know who to consult for design ideas :0)

  • Thanks! :) I love doing tattoo designs! My sis had asked for one before but she never got it done. This one, she’s already taken to the shop and set up her first appointment! All three of my tatts are my own design and I have a few friends with my art….that’s such a cool thing to see your work on someone’s body! :) I’ve often thought about becoming a tattoo artist, but I don’t know that I could actually do the needle work on someone else….eeew! LOL

    I’d love to work on a design for you….if you ever decide on anything, let me know :)
