A friend I've had for a long time now asked me to come up with a tattoo for him that looked like his arm was torn open and there were cybernetics beneath the skin, and also if I could incorporate a Lily and a Rose (the names of his daughters). At first I was like "uhh, errr, I dunno". But after some thought I came up with the idea that the flowers would be growing out of the torn hole. Makes sense when you think about it, his girls came from his blood, so the flowers are sprouting from inside of the machine.
I had him take measurements of the area on his arm where he wanted it. I then drew up that size on some paper and got to work. I scanned the line art in and painted it up. He has both the line-art and color.
Try to ignore the surrounding 'skin' around the bionics. That was just thrown in for a simulation of what it might look like. If he ever finds a tattoo guy that can pull it off, I'll post the pics.
So Ben was finally able to get to the tattoo shop (in two separate sittings). It's a pretty big piece for his first tattoo, and he took it like a champ.
My name's Trevor Lemon, and this is my blog. I'll try to
update it with whatever I'm working on, random thoughts, links to
shit I think is cool; whatever I deem worthy I suppose.
