In the book the main characters mother is a fishmonger, when she gives birth to him she cuts the cord with her fish gutting knife and abandons the child. At the time of drawing i had been looking at a copy of the "Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopedia" I quite like the way that a persons life story can be told through tattoo using symbols and keys, so i wanted to create my own symbols for the events they represented as if they were to be worn by Jean-Baptiste.
