Kari's teaching / learning inspired sleeve. Done by Joshua Bowers at Iron Heart Tattoo

It started as a simple tree tattoo to symbolize learning, then Joshua had the idea to make it an apple tree with blossoms to symbolize teaching. At the last minute we added a small bee since I'd be getting a bee tattoo in the near future.

Later they added more shading and branches

And even later, they continued the theme adding books, an owl, a globe, a lightbulb, more flowers, a pen and ink
