This is another tattoo design, which i will sheepishly share with the deviant community. I only add it because the eddie maiden pic got such an intense response, and my friend recently got this girl's head tattooed on his ribs on a massive scale. I can personally attest to rib tattoos hurting like all hell so he sure is game. It was originally meant to be a small piece about the size of the palm of your hand, and to go on his neck, the drawing is about the size of a palm too. This is not my artwork, again, the credit goes to an anonymous illustrator, I think the original was in acrylic or ink on canvas. It's a simple picture, not something that I would pursue, although I love the curves of the ribbons and hair, and that kind of repetitive persuasion is very appealing to me, so this was kind of fun to appropriate. My image is done in felt tip pen and colour pencil.
amazing art work
amazing instant fav
i was going to say this'd make a sweet tatt, but then i read your comment lol this is a really beautiful peice, even if it is referenced. sometimes the tribute is better than the original
This would make a great tattoo, if it was done justice great shading and softness.
i would definetly like to get this!!!!
this is amazing
I love this, nice style :}
Yeah my friend has it on his ribs, done by a decent Japanese guy, it looks good.
Fabulous!! This just screams awesome. I'd love to see this inked on someone, but only if it was done by a tattooist who was proficient at their craft.
Uuh, the hair looks extra fancy. And I like that detailed rose, too.
Hey thanks, yeah, the colouring is easy, you just need a soft pencil and gently sort of gradually shade, its fun to do, once you get all the tight wristed pen work out of the way. And its easy for the tattooist to get an idea of gray scale and tonal qualities from a drawing like this, unless of course they are a shit tattooist, which, is totally possible in this day and age of image conscious moron metro-sexuals and the business they would give these shit tattooists.
This is beautiful! I just really like the way you inked this and the way you presented her hair with all of those details! Perhaps I should also mention the epic coloring too?
