The armor of Allah by Meatshop-Tattoo The armor of Allah by Meatshop-Tattoo
Handdrawn, dotted and a bit of lines. And a lot of hours.
This is one of the greatest things i have ever been allowed to do. I have always had a great love for the arab geometry and architecture, so getting to decorate a whole body of it was the most perfect task.
Both the wearer and myself are aware that it is against the Quran to be tattooed, since it is to desecrate the gift of Allah. We therefore went for Allahs own art, and searched for perfection, something the Quran praises, hopening to balance everything out. :)

Love and light
Peter

Wow!! Super cool tattoo. Wait? This IS a tattoo, right? Or is it a pen-drawn drawing that is temporary?

Seriously people, what's with all the hate??
So what if you don't agree with the Muslim way of life, this guy still
got a pretty fucking awesome tattoo.
Show some respect!

(I'm not Muslim, I'm pagan, but I can still enjoy the art of other religions
without being an asshole about it!)

I am a Muslim myself and I personally admire your handiwork. Though I am forbidden to have tattoos, I am taking a neutral standpoint in this. If the wearer wants a tattoo, I will not criticise his decision. That said, the tattoo is very well done! :)

I particularly like how you sculpted the forms around the canvas's muscles so that the geometry isn't interfered with by changes in his body; the section over his bicep in particular caught my eye.  Very, very clever work.

Guys, put religion aside, people can be live what they wanna belive. Whether they think there's a god or the universe is ruled by panda, its there belief. I personally think this tattoo is a masterpiece, and think its cool.
