Surrender, Illustration Friday

I surrender! Here's a quickie for this week's prompt, inspired by Valentine's Day and with a nod to all the tattoos and other forms of body art out there.
I must confess, I've never surrendered a square inch of my own flesh to ink or piercings, having already sacrificed tiny pieces of myself to the roads, sidewalks and other undisclosed locations where my much younger self used to skate around on (or off, as it were) urethane wheels.
Whether it's a sweet valentine, a kid rolling down the road on wheels, or a bold statement in body ink, each offers a form of expression as individual as its origin. Surrender yourself to an expressive week!

  3. Hey Michele, well what a good take on surrender, surrender and love just go hand in hand - and there's that piercing metaphor of the arror - indicates the duality eh ?

    no tats?

  9. You say it's a "quickie", but I really love this! Sometimes, simplicity breeds great art! And yes, I think it would make a lovely tattoo.

  10. I really love this. Maybe it was quick, but it's fresh and happy. I'm with you about tattoos in general. Well, maybe henna tattoos are okay? They wear off eventually. You made me smile thinking about life before knee pads and helmets on children :)
