Anatomy of a commissioned portrait. So…my husband commissioned me to do a portrait of him for a tattoo he wanted. He had a pretty specific vision in mind for it, which of course didn’t match my vision….LOL! So….he good naturedly posed for me to do my thing, then I created what he asked for. Everyone is happy, including the tattoo artist…the incomparable Christine Stark Gibson, who works out of Red Handed Tattoo in Carson City.
