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.

That is one freaking awesome tattoo. Although he body of the wearer is adding a lot of awesomeness. On my body it would not be that great haha.

But superb job!

Warning! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at word warning! Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten years old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she killed all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that the best idea was to get rid of her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a Monday night at 12 am she creeps into your room and kills you slowly and watching you bleed to death.now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't

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

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.
