Music and Medicine
This sleeve is the client's tribute to his love of music and medicine, being both a practicing physician and a musician in his spare time. To represent these two subjects we chose a stylized rendering of the anatomy of the inner ear, and paired those structures with the classic musical symbolism of the gramophone and "f-hole' on a violin. You can see the client Nick's other arm that I sleeved elsewhere in my tattoo gallery, in the entry titled "Florida Tribute."
