As she continues to apply the tattoo, she is approached by multiple people, some assumed to be her colleagues in the shop. One stops to take a photo, while others stand behind her looking surprised.

Asikoglu is clearly a very talented tattoo artist and has shared a vast assortment of different pieces she has done over the years. They range from tribute tats to a client's late father to gorgeous eagle tats.
