It is also a bit carousel horse and when I was asked to draw it I was told it should be a Friesian Unicorn with rainbow zebra stripes.
All in all this is a very unique tattoo. I searched all over trying to find a rainbow zebra striped friesian unicorn drawing or painting because I had never seen one before and came up empty handed. It seems it isn’t so hard to come up with newness in art or tattoos after all.
The location is the right thigh. All of the stuff going on in this piece was from the clients imagination. The little owl and wizard frog are revamps of existing images she supplied. The war turtle was an existing piece I did a year or so earlier. The rest was mostly bic penned on per her description. The photo was taken at approximately two years healed. My favorite part to do was the little spooky cabin in the far left background and the rolling grass hills.
The Grim Reaper, sometimes called the Angel of Death. He is a skeletal figure carrying a large scythe and clothed in a black cloak with a hood.
I am not sure what causes our fascination with this grim specter, but he is a figure that many are drawn to.
This particular Reaper is one of the my favorites when it comes to my own tattooing.
The reason for that was the shade style the client went with (true grey) went well with the imagery so I had a lot of fun doing it.
Who that loves fairies doesn’t love flower fairies?
