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.

Thank you, but wouldn't you rather have something custom made for you? Keeping up that physique is probably more painful than getting the tattoo was by the way :D
