Last month I met Maria on the West 4th Street subway platform. She had this interesting tattoo on the upper right side of her back, and I was curious:
"I'm a big gamer, and my favorite video game of all time is Super Mario Brothers 3. The P-Wing is the one item you always wanted to get."
Maria credited Rich Smith at Thicker Than Water Tattoo on the Lower East Side as the artist who gave her this wing.
My own appreciation for it it it's originality in contrast to the more common inking of angel wings on backs.
Thanks to Maria for sharing her wing with us here on Tattoosday!
