Armor of Wyrms tattoo by Meatshop-Tattoo Armor of Wyrms tattoo by Meatshop-Tattoo
Finally all done. This is the culmination of 19 days of drawing and tattooing, the most perfect work i have ever done.
The dragons are Urnes-style, with a red light to them.
The pattern is from a vikingage knifehilt, found in Poland.

The idea is to create the feeling of armor, to empower and protect the wearer. I think that worked out.

Picture was done by the mighty Kobaru. kobaru.deviantart.com/
Tattoo was done by Peter Walrus Madsen.

holy shit this is an fu**ing awesome tattoo the longer i look the better it gets.
the fact that it covers the sleves shoulders and chest highlights this bodyparts witch makes the design very masculine 

or in short
good job :)

Feel free to let your friends know where it was done. We try to keep an eye out for photos of our work being circulated, but people sometimes get so eager to share that they forget to point out who did the tattoo - which is a shame for us and any potential client who'd like a similar piece done.

This is certainly a great and unique design, well worth the time and dedication it must've took. And the pattern is Polish, you say? No wonder I like it. ^^ Keep up the awesome work!

Looks really cool, but is it finished then?
I think I would continue it down the chest to the upper abdomen in a V-shape.
Then it would feel more like a strong armor on the chest. 
It looks a little short on the chest now, like if it was unfinished.
