Tattoo you was the first Rolling Stones album that I purchased and it is still one of my favorites. Start me up is probably still my favorite Rolling Stones song. This album started as a special commission, it was an album that my friend's father had left her when he passed away. She wanted to commemorate it as a piece of art. The imagery is an illustration of a tattooed woman with full face tattoos. I started by adding red glitter appliqué to the background and silver glitter appliqué as the face. I then stitched over 100,000 stitches on top of the fabric appliqués to complete the face. The glitter of the fabrics really add to the glamour of this piece.
