Design I did for friend who wanted a dragon from a previous design he saw but instead wanted a sword instead of a cross. He really enjoys it. If you would like to use the design, you can but send me a link to a picture of your tattoo.
I just want to point out the sun and moon symbol in the guard/hilt. I wanted to go with a sort of yin-yang design but wanted to avoid the whole typical design of it that's seen everywhere... I wish I knew who designed the dragon to credit him/her. He showed me the ref from a tattoo shop but the sword is my own design and I just tweaked with the dragon design to make it wrap more around it.
I'd also like feedback on this and suggestions for tribal designs because I really like this whole style of movement and lines. It's fun.
First tribal design I really ever did in Photoshop Illustrator, about 3-4 hrs.
EDIT: How am I getting all these views of this piece in one day? I don't believe it.
EDIT 2: Ok seriously 100+ favs and about 60,000 views now... What is with you people? XD
EDIT 3 (10/13/10): So it's been like 2 years since I posted this thing I honestly didn't expect over 200,000 downloads of it (But only 390 favs? I suppose some aren't with dA or something). I totally appreciate those that have asked for my permission to use the design and the have even sent me photos of their tat (Which is awesome). Thank you!
P.S. Heh, I went to a bowling alley the other day and noticed a familiar looking sticker in one of those children's sticker vending machine for like a dollar. It was this tat design. Exactly the same. Sun and moon symbol on the hilt! I was stoked that my image got popular/liked enough to be taken for a children's sticker vending machine. lol... XD Can't do anything about it but awesome to see it beyond the internet. Can't wait to run into somebody with this tattoo design on them.
