    My new tattoo

    My new tattoo

    My new tattoo. A completely faithful rendering of a live drawing I did of the Daspletosaurus upstairs @fieldmuseum back in 2012. This dinosaur used to be on display in #stanleyfieldhall, and has been something I’ve loved to look at since I was in pre-k. Thank you @jimmyvregalado for the top notch work and raising funds for #cureforcarol #dinosaurskull #dinosaurtattoo #originaldesign #drawing #jamesjankowiak #daspletosaurus #daspletosaurusskull #fieldmuseum #naturalhistorymuseum
