Smile! for [COD #11] Inked Fins

P1010231 copy

Since I’m on winter break right now, I’ve had a lot more time on my hands, but of course, that doesn’t mean that I’m just sleeping all day. I’ve recently been hanging out with friends who I haven’t seen in awhile and one day, we were watching movies. I have this habit of doodling on my arm while I watch movies, is that weird? Haha…anyways, this time I went all out and not only used a ball point pen, I also used MAC black eyeliner and a white gel pen.

This is how it looked on the 2nd day. I had to wrap my arm in Saran wrap while I was showering to keep it from washing out. Later on, I patted around it dry and then blotted some of the ink off, so the result became this very watercolor-esque effect.

For this outfit, the inspiration came from the koi fish that I actually drew on my arm. I was inspired from the soft ruffled look from the fins and the dark, comfortable colors from the color of the fish.
