Teddy bear tattoo on arm

Oh teddy bear! Apparently this tattoo has been adapted from a drawing of a real childhood teddy bear. Beaten, battered and slightly ragged, the teddy bear lives on… albeit in tattoo form. Childhood memories remind us of how once life was simple, happy and free. As with all great art, there is story behind it and it can be an intensely personal journey, but onlookers love being caught up in other peoples memories as well.

This tattoo was done by Blake at Tattoos by Betue. Original artwork by Andrea Lane Principie. Photo by nikoretro
