Eye Two (#150)

I sat down to knock out a panic an hour ago and Eye from yesterday was still on the screen and for whatever reason I thought it needed more so away I went. Main deciding factor for the shape was I think this will be pretty close to what I’d like done on my forearm when I get around to having some more ink done.

Some of the regular Panic people will recognise the sword and feather from a Panic done a few months ago… Lazy I know, but this illustration was going to become a tat so I wasn’t past using old Panic parts to get it done 🙂

Every part of the illustration above does mean something to me, whatever the level of importance… (a song reference is in there!). I’m not a huge fan of rattling off the deep and hidden meanings behind a tattoo I want… I know the parts and the whole mean something to me personally and it looks cool too so I leave others to discover the meaning for themselves or just appreciate the artistry and skill of the design and of the tattooist.

The Pen or the Sword (#41)

The Pen or the Sword...

I really enjoy tattoo’s. Looking at them, seeing them getting done, getting them done on me. They are an awesome form of self-expression and when you get a good artist you really have a piece of fine art on your body forever… that is cool. Within the tattoo genre, the old school Sailor Jerry look is quite popular with the young’ns these days so today’s image is a little tip of the hat in that direction. The all-seeing eye, a (feather) pen and a sword… got no idea how that came about but here it is! 🙂
