Utica Key - Custom Tattoo

Illustration WorkMaria ValleseComment

A few months ago my friend Adam asked me to create a tattoo design for him based off of a photograph he took. Adam lives in Downtown Utica and wanted to add a little bit of his love for our city to his tattoo collection. Adam and I have known eachother for a very long time, so I was honored to not only have several pieces of artwork hanging in his home, but be able to create a permanent piece for him. 

The final image was tattooed on Adam's arm by Joe Zielinski at Inkorporated Tattoo, located on Genesee Street in Downtown Utica.
