Carved lotus

Funny, the texture of the paper makes it look a little like a stone carving. Just a little.

On other news, I may change the "pace" of that blog from one post every Sunday to one post every 2 Sundays... I'm really out of ideas for tattoos design at the moment. I wasn't even inspired by halloween (maybe because it's not celebrated here). Instead I'm having fun doing ugly gouache paintings, and it seems to take almost all the inspiration/motivation I have.

Another vertical tribal tattoo

Vertical tribal tattoo design

 I was a bit out of ideas lately, so tadaaa... a tribal flash.

It's funny to think I started to draw this kind of stuff some 15 years ago when I was in secondary school. At that time I thought there was only 2 types of tattoos in the world : tribals and the crappy prison/army tattoos worn by some adults I knew (ugly cross, lion, naked chick, knife... bleh.)

Something I saw earlier, a perfect example of what people should NOT do.

I understand why the original tattoo artist is pissed off.

First, stealing a tattoo design that was not intended to be copied just tells the world you are moron. If you want a ready-made design, there's tattoo flash designs, they are made to be copied. Photos of tattoos made especially for someone are not.

Second, make sure your tattoo artist knows their job, otherwise... Urgh.

Ornamental flourish-something

I'm so great with titles, wooohoo.

Quick drawing, with digital colours because I was already late. Now that I look at it again, it would be better if I had rotated it some 25° to the left.
