Don't Be Koi

This is my latest custom creation! DON'T BE KOI

I painted this bag in about 6 hours. Took a brand new green faux snake skin bag (a New York and Co )that i found at a thrift store for $8! Brand new tags on and everything!

I went with black, mustard yellow and shades of green. I love the textured look of the scales. i used the bags own snake skin pattern to help with that. And I went for green bubbles of color instead of the traditional cherry blossoms or waves cause... well, idk why I just did! Ha!

The art was inspired by on of my tattoo artists- Hiro from japan. He did the big piece on my left leg at a tat convention in 2007. Find him at .

This piece is sold! but it was so much fun I wanted to show you! And you know you can get your own custom piece from me anytime. or email me at
