Two Dollar Little Mermaid Tattoo By Derek Burton

I truly enjoying how lately it seems submissions have been coming in that have continuing themes. Today I received another mythical sea creature, The Little Mermaid. In true Two Dollar Tattoo fashion it is literally the Littlest Mermaid, Ha!
Derek Burton (of Good Point Tattoos in Oakville Ontario) sends us this great little single needle tattoo he did on his lovely lady friend Tami. Good Point was in fact one of the shops dared via snail mail to take up the challenge by The Ittee Bittee Tattoo Committee at the beginning of the month. Derek shared this about the experience.

"I was glad to accept the challenge. It's been a while since I've done something like this. I'm usually being told to NOT to make stuff so small. Attached are the pictures of the Twoonie exchange, stencil and a photo of me tattooing the Littlest Mermaid on my girlfriend, Tami. I bought a coffee with the twoonie she gave me, a large triple triple."

There you have it folks if you find your self in Oakville and want to bring Derek a coffee you know he likes it: tall, light and sweet.

On a side note, I quit my job! I will now have endless amounts of time to dedicate to this project. Well that is until Monday morning when I start my new career. As I have mentioned before this project is driven not only by volunteers that work on the blog (me plus 3) but as well the hard working artists who submit work they have done essentially at a loss. So I will present to you my empty hat to fill. If you own or work for a company that could benefit from advertising on this blog we will consider making a trade for stuff to give away to artists who contribute to the project. We are open to offers so please email us at TwoDollarTattoo(at)
