This Deviation is based on a knotwork Biohazard symbol I did for a T-shirt design ([link]) - but here I've placed it in a setting where it really seems to belong. Like on the tomb of Balor, maybe. You know, one of those ancient, cryptic inscriptions which - thirty seconds too late - is translated as "You idiot, don't even THINK about opening this!"

Very nice, the biohazard is one of my favorite symbols and I've always admired knotwork. The two work quite well together.

I forgot to comment on this one, too? :o

I never used to like the biohazard symbol, but when people make it so beautiful, it's awesome to see it. :)

I think you're right about it looking like an ancient symbol for danger, but when used the right way; it can be an awesome piece of art.

Biohazard is on supply and demand in my city. It's just a lack of desorientation and more epic movies. I don't disagree with anyone does that, but I require a plot for my movie.

The biohazard Symbol is great, because it's totally abstract, but somehow conveys the message, "This will mess you up!"
