Hey my name is Jeni, I’m 19, and this is my third tattoo. I decided to get this mermaid as a half sleeve because I wanted something different. I love this tattoo because it has an elegant look to it like stained glass. The artist that did such an amazing job is Derek Matherne at Southern Sting Tattoo Parlor in Larose, Louisiana. All together the tattoo took up 7 whole hours of work straight, I don’t regret one second of that time. This has to be my favorite piece and I have to thank Derek for making it look exactly how I imagined.
