A kapala (Sanskrit for “skull”) or skullcup is a cup made from a human skull used as a ritual implement (bowl) in both Hindu Tantra and Buddhist Tantra (Vajrayana). Especially in Tibet, they were often carved or elaborately mounted with precious metals and jewels.

A dragon is a legendary creature, typically scaled or fire-spewing; with serpentine, reptilian and avian traits, that features in the myths of many cultures. There are two distinct cultural traditions of dragons:

The two traditions may have evolved separately, but have influenced each other to a certain extent, particularly with the cross-cultural contact of recent centuries. The English word dragon and Latin word draco derives from Greek δράκων (drákōn), “dragon, serpent of huge size, water-snake”.[2]

Dragon cover up

first thing first

we started with this on the lower arm… my client collected this tattoos over the years by doing small add ons to the little things that he already had…. it became a mix of languages with no core line .
in order to cover it… with the understanding that it’s going to be dark…. we came up with the idea of a dragon underwater…. full color needed.

needs-cover

then we made a sketch based on that idea…  actually i made a few of them sketches, and in the end i got it the way i wanted it , this is what you see here .
