Thank you both for your comments
stillatthetop, I did consider making prints of this piece! I've never made prints from my artwork before so I don't even know where to get started
I used a photograph that I took of a good friend of mine as the subject for this painting. She actually has that tattoo on her shoulder and I liked how it contrasted with the drapery and emotion in the photograph... I thought that it added an edgy touch to the image. Her tattoo is inspired by the song "Bad Fish" by Sublime.
I was also lucky in that her hands weren't showing in the original photo!
