Skin#024 is a dragon coverup project i started a while ago, this is stage 2
you can see the first stage in the post Dragon cover up.
i will update the blog with the movies of the next stages.
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:
- European dragon, derived from European folk traditions and ultimately related to Balkans and Western Asian mythologies. Most are depicted as reptilian creatures with animal-level intelligence, are uniqely sexrupeds (i.e. four legs and a detached set of wings).
- Chinese dragon, with counterparts in Japan (namely the Japanese dragon), Korea and other East Asian and South Asian countries. Most are depicted as serpentine creatures with above-average intelligence, and are quadrupeds (i.e. four legs and wingless).
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”.
Skin#023 is a phoenix black and gray tattoo i have been working on.
In Greek mythology, a phoenix or phenix (Greek: φοῖνιξ phoinix; Latin: phoenix, phœnix, fenix) is a long-lived bird that is cyclically regenerated or reborn. Associated with the sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. According to some sources, the phoenix dies in a show of flames and combustion, although there are other sources that claim that the legendary bird dies and simply decomposes before being born again.
According to some texts, the phoenix could live over 1,400 years before rebirth.
The tattoo is obviously not finish, but you can see where it’s going to .
I will upload the next stage when it happen.
Skin#021 is a movie of the different stages of a tiki tattoo i did a while ago.
In Māori mythology, Tiki is the first man created by either Tūmatauenga or Tāne. He found the first woman Marikoriko in a pond; she seduced him and he became the father of Hine-kau-ataata. By extension, a tiki is a large or small wooden or stone carving in humanoid form, although this is a somewhat archaic usage in the Māori language. Carvings similar to tikis and coming to represent deified ancestors are found in most Polynesian cultures. They often serve to mark the boundaries of sacred or significant sites.
Skin#022 is a movie that shows all the stages of this amazing mandala tattoo.
