This is obviously an Asian themed mask piece done in an Americanized style, but if you look really close down towards the left you will find among the chaos a little boat making it’s way through it all.
You can read all about this tattoo HERE (on my art blog) and also see pictures showing the front and the back of the arm. They are “freshy” pictures though, taken with my cell phone at completion time. In other words… the lower half is a bit red in them.
I was a lucky guy in that I was born and raised in in the heart of Washington state’s beautiful Olympic Peninsula. With my home town nestled between the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic mountain range I was always surrounded by nature. If such surroundings can’t inspire a love of art and beauty in a person I don’t know what will. If you have visited the NW corner of Washington I know you understand what I mean. If you haven’t, then you should. It is that simple.
This tattoo is an obvious testament to the clients love of the area.
It was a joy to do and I wish more people would choose to represent the beauty found in nature in such a manner.
