This idea came about when I was looking at tattoos of daggers going through hearts. I find myself liking the steriotypical hearts when i look at them but I am not happy with my them when i draw them, so I decided to change the heart element to be an actual heart.
I preferred the idea of a pen penetrating the heart instead of a dagger. I thought this would be better suited to me as an illustration student and the fact that I don't really own any knives or daggers for reference! So i found myself the nicest looking pen (which happened to be a Parker pen i used when i was in school!) It's silver with a gold nib, i feel this will look great when i add colour to it later.
