Praying Hands Tattoo with Script, Designed and Inked by Sunny Bhanushali at Aliens Tattoo, Mumbai. Client wanted to get praying hands tattoo with script. He got some tattoo snap from google search. I redesigned the design from scratch and he loved it. Client made this tattoo in remembrance of her mother. I took some extra time to finish this tattoo because of lot of detailing in this tattoo design. Hope you all liked this one too.
