It looks as if you could pluck the feathers off of the crow with the amount of amazing detail that is in every single part of this piece. The fact that this tattoo looks like a piece of artwork looks speaks volumes of the skill of the artist. These ravens are flying into an ornate gate with inscriptions and it’s really cool the way the artist brought the ravens to life through the shading and detail.

2. The third eye with an intricate design around it makes for quite an interesting piece. This guys chest piece has so many aspects of artistic expression that its amazing. The straight lines going across the chest onto the arm really set him up for more ink on the other arm. The all seeing eye in the middle of the tattoo is bolder that the surrounding pieces of the tattoo and really stands out. We love how it looks like the ink is dripping down his chest, it really creates movement and fluidity to the tattoo. Notice he didn’t ink past his wrist. This is a great way to be able to have a lot of work done and not have to worry about covering it up for work. A long sleeve shirt will easily take care of that.

7. A beautiful butterfly set as a chest piece on this canvas has such a dramatic and powerful feel. This butterfly would have taken quite some time. As it takes up his whole chest and with the amount of time it would have take to ink in every part of the perfectly symmetrical wings, Its safe to assume that this piece took more than one sitting.

If you look closely at the tattoo on the ribs, the lines would line up perfectly with the lines on the arm located in the light blue area. this tattoo is one piece separated into two. Its really hard to do this type of tattoo right and well, and this artist and canvas did a spectacular job. The slight shadows and meticulous detailing makes it look as if that bird will fly off of that guys arm any minute.
