Tattoos

Posted: April 5, 2011 in Art, etc.

I am a big fan of tattoos. I am not sure on the total count, but believe that I have drawn more than 10 tattoos that people are walking around with. Again, haven’t been great at taking pictures, but I will see what I can do. The challenge for me and drawing tattoos is that white paper creates a way better contrast for intricate designs than most any skin tone (possibly save Powder out in Pasadena, he would be the perfect tattoo canvas as he is susceptible to moon burns).

Regardless, below are a few tattoos that I have drawn and their on the skin counterparts.

      The branches around “Hope” are olive branches that are traditionally used to symbolize ‘peace.’ Greek mythology had Athena beating out Poseidon for Athens by planting an olive tree as a gift to the land. The branches have also been used in countless emblems, including the Cadillac logo, which symbolizes as lot of things to me. The tattoo itself has a lot of meaning and it subject to each persons interpretation.
