Caitlin’s Phoenix Tattoo Story

Nude Girl with Phoenix Tattoo
Caitlin’s Phoenix Tattoo Story

This phoenix tattoo is very personal to me. The phoenix describes the struggles I have gone through in my life and trying to rise above them. It took 2 years for me to compile everything that I wanted in the tattoo. This is just the outline and I am currently getting color done. It will take quite a few months to finish since it is so large.

    Looks like 2 square feet of regret.

    It’s going to look beautiful coloured in; but it would look just as beautiful just as the outline- subtle and dramatic. It’s a wonderful work of art and you’re lucky to have it!

    Wow You’ve just summed everything I wanted in my phoenix tattoo. Stunning so true and beautiful. And looking at the same size, I love the flow over the body. Must see the end piece. And hopefully the design and tattooist?

  22. CJ Says:

    I’m SIMPLY DYING to see the finished product. I want a phoenix tattoo myself, and yours is one of the best ones I’ve found on the web. Hurry up and post those finished pics!!



  23. CJ Says:

    Oh, would you also mind disclosing the average cost? I think I’ll be doing something a little bit smaller, but I want the same high-quality work, and I want to know what exactly I’m getting myself into!

  24. Randy Says:

    Amazing tattoo. I also have a phoenix about this size it is more up on my back though. I have been searching online for any other one that was as well done as mine and im happy to say yours is about the only one I have found. I love the vivid colors and positioning of the bird on your body, it flows very well!

  25. caitlin Says:

    Thanks to everyone for all the great comments! The cost was about $3,000 but my tattoo artist gave me breaks throughout the tattoo process. The artist is Wayne Lessard at Bodytech in Gainesville, FL. It took around 50+ hours.

  26. Jennifer Says:

    Caitlin, How long did the outline take?
    I’m in love with the concept of what you did :)

  27. Andy R Says:
