Armor of Wyrms, day 10. Tattoo of the ages by Meatshop-Tattoo Armor of Wyrms, day 10. Tattoo of the ages by Meatshop-Tattoo
So, i cannot begin to describe how much i love this project. We are not done yet, but it is more then halfway, and we are doing good.
The project is a mix of the Urnes-styled wyrms, with a background of ever an entwining pattern from a viking-age knife found in Poland.
Everything is hand-drawn, and of course, the pattern fits together all the way around :)

Really stunning- I love how the tattoo isn't a piece of art on his body like a lot of tattoos, but is actually part of it. One of the best I've seen :)

It just struck me what I love about this tattoo: the un-inked skin is as much a part of the design as the tattoo!  The play of light and dark is masterful.  Also, personally, I adore the black borders at the neckline and armpits.  This is simply the best tattoo I have ever seen.  I'd like to see more pictures from other angles.
