ART + FIC: The Rose Tattoo (PG-13)

This is the final entry of the 2014 dracotops_harry Fest.

Title: The Rose Tattoo
Artist: raitala
Author: vaysh
Prompt: # 62
Summary: A drunken tattoo becomes the anchor and compass in Draco's life.
Rating: PG-13
Warning(s): songfic
Word Count: 3200
Artist's Notes: My thanks to the anonymous author of this fic for pointing out this delicious prompt, which I had overlooked, and inviting me to share it. My thanks also for tolerating my subsequent 'illustrations' of her story: two shirtless Dracos and one where I reluctantly had to put him in a coat, because Greenland, when there were so many other more important moments in the plot. Many thanks also to my beta, who persuaded me to give Draco a bigger cock and comforted me when Draco accidentally ended up looking like a blond Rinaldo.
Author's Notes: This is no fic but words illustrating the stunning art works of the anonymous artist. This was a true work of collaboration and I just wished I was a better collaborator. The quotes are from Dropkick Murphys' Rose Tattoo from the original prompt.
