Sparrow tattoo design for Ali Whitton!
Since this was commissioned and paid for by Ali, and has personal meaning to him, please be respectful and do not get this done as a tattoo yourself. You are welcome to commission your own by emailing me at teaganwh@gmail.com, or get many of my other existing works tattooed unless otherwise noted. Thanks for understanding!

I also made a gif from scans of the drawing at three different stages: [link]

Available as prints, tshirts, iphone cases, laptop skins, etc on Society6: [link]

Also, I've just started using twitter, just to post updates about new work and things like that. If you'd like to keep up to date with what I'm doing, you can follow me! @teaganwhite

While looking online for tattoo ideas, I keep running into your work, and I think it's all amazing. (I think I may have left a similar comment on Society 6, but it's true.)

Fine, I will...

Hey, so how much would you charge to design a barn owl tattoo for me? I love the idea of having a tattoo in this elegant style.

teaganwhite Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2012  Professional General Artist
Hi! I would probably charge $200-500 based on the complexity and size. However I am not taking tattoo jobs just now, my schedule is packed for the next month or two. If you're interested though please send me an email at teaganwh@gmail.com and we can talk about your ideas before then.
Thanks!

I love drawing birdies they are awesome. I always observe their behaviour when they're in my garden, is like watching a reality show.


This is an excellent representation, I love it!

Sparrows are one of my favourite birds! I love the precise and patient style; it looks like an illustration out of an ornithology book.
