This was done by Vinny Romanelli at Red Rocket Tattoo in NYC. He’s multi-talented and really well known for his portraits. This is a carbon-ring microphone (steampunk style). I’m a singer in a band and an activist so the microphone just seemed to fit me. You can see his work at www.tattoosbyvinny.com.
It’s pretty and the tattoo makes sense… but all I read was:
“This was done by Vinny Romanelli at Red Rocket Tattoo in NYC. He is known for portraits but that fact is irrelevant because this is not a portrait. This is a microphone. I’m a singer, in case you were wondering I’m in a band and I wanted to let you know that I’m an activist even though it has nothing to do with steampunk, microphones, or being in a band… so the microphone just seemed to fit me.”
