A Filligree'd Frame

I originally received the request for this tattoo some months ago from my good friend looking for a way to frame the Persian calligraphy on his bicep… I was stumped due to the vertical layout and irregular silhouette of the characters…

But for some reason, this day we came in and I had a GREAT idea…

And this awesome 3d Jigsaw* tattoo was born 🙂

A nice easy-going session, and an awesome music history lesson while we tattooed!
Thanks Maji,
*( I have no idea what to call this style, but a, open to suggestions!
