Similar Deviations
These are not my images, I only assembled them.
Wicca
Bear And Kooda
Lennox as a puppy.

None of these dogs ever expressed aggressive/dangerous behavior.

Only one of them [Wicca] ever attacked a person; and that person was not seriously injured. Evidence indicates the attack was a startle response, not a malicious act.

None of these dogs was definitively and scientifically proven to be a "Pit Bull."
Bear and Kooda, siblings from the same litter, were sold as American Bulldog/Bull Mastiff/Staffordshire Terrier crosses. Neither of their parents were considered pit bulls, nor were they recognized to have any pit bull in their bloodlines.
Lennox was determined to be a pit bull based on physical measurements of his body, and general appearance.

It is impossible to determine an animal's bloodlines by visual analysis. Just looking at these four dogs, does Wicca look that much like Bear and Kooda? Or Lennox?
See if you can ID the pit bull in this lineup: [link]

Lennox was licensed/registered, microchipped, housed in a fenced yard [8 feet high], and kept muzzled and leashed when in public.

All these dogs were destroyed as 'dangerous pit bulls' based on... what? That's right, physical appearance.

______________________________________________
Breed-specific/breed-discriminatory legislation doesn't work, because BSL does not address the core problem, the catalyst behind violent dog attacks: the humans who abuse and misuse powerful dogs.
In fact breed-bans make the breeds in question more desirable to the criminal element who want to enhance their tough-guy machismo. Remember that saying "If we outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns."
If we demonize these animals through ignorance and fear-mongering we are only delivering them into the hands of those most likely to abuse them, neglect them, and use them as weapons.
BSL is also very costly to enforce, because animal control teams must respond to every reported sighting, whether the dog actually belongs to the restricted breed or not. This draws resources and personnel away from other important duties.

Communities which have BSL in place do not see any reduction in dog bite/attack incidents, and in some cases have actually seen increases.

12 Reasons to Oppose Breed-Discriminatory Legislation

Blaming a specific breed for violent dog attacks is like blaming a specific flavor of beer for DWI fatalities. Shall we ban IPA?

Responsible ownership is the ONLY cure.

All of this information is readily available on the net.

THIS is the phoenix tattoo version which everybody can use.
As you can see is not so different from the other one, but the most important particulars had been changed ...

You can use only this, not the other one. ^^

So, this is my first attempt with the use of water colors. WOO! I think it turned out rather nicely...and, though time-consuming, it was very fun. =D

Inked with Sakura Pigma pens, painted with tube-based watercolors.

Est. Time (Painting): 3 hours
Est. Time (Lining): 1 hour

Mmm, I honestly HATE this shading style, but that's mainly because I associate it with inmate work. Lauren said she preferred it, though, so I do what I must. If anyone, particularly of the female variety, has any input on their view of this draft, I'd be happy to hear it. Criticism, compliments, random interjections, whatever. It's all appreciated. I'd like to know if anyone else thinks it's "ghetto" before I let her put it on her skin.

So I'm having a party.

I left off the info , but it normally lives at the bottom to the left and right of the dancers. Done quickly and for fun I didnt really draw anything in this, its either from R3 screenshots or photo ref found online. This is a party for me and my co workers to celebrate the launch of the game (Tuesday after next!)

Also I wasn't sure what category to put it in... but I think this works!

You can't Resist the Dance!!!

Another gift for my beloved "sister" Carly.

She asked me to draw her next tattoo, and i've done it.

The "B" signed with the 3 stars, is for "Bill" (Kaulitz)

EDIT:
Hem, ok, there's a little problem about the availability of this drawing for tattoo ... ç_ç

The person for who i made this drawing is really connected to that drawing and she don't want that anyone else has that tattoo, so no other can use it ...
Here you can find it:

I'm really, really sorry about this ... ç_ç
