Phoenix Sun Tattoo by Herahkti Phoenix Sun Tattoo by Herahkti
A Phoenix flying infront of the Sun. This is now the largest size I have of this file. I've made it available for prints if you'd like one and there is one change from the original. The two trailing feathers have been changed, I feel these smaller and simpler ones go with the flow better.

Regarding all those requests to use this picture and others of mine, feel free to use it. All I ask for in exchange is a photo of whatever you used it for.

Hi Herahkti,

I took you at your word and used the design for a prop in a LARP, images of the use I put it to can be found here:…

Thank you posting this very nice art, and thank you giving other people permission to use it.

Best wishes,

Hey Herahkti

Like your pic very much. I'm using it for a camo for a what-if plane. Here is a pic of it:


It's the bird on its tail. It'a bit difficult to see due to its fine lines.

Thanks again for your work.

Everyone can use my art, I just want to see how you've used it. So if you'd like, you can send me a work-in-progress picture and a final product picture or just a final product pic :)

i love this tattoo, but do you have a smaller version?
Herahkti Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I don't, in the sense that I don't have a smaller file size, or a different smaller phoenix :/ you can always change the size in Photoshop or even paint if you don't have that.

thanks for the phoenix
TomGranger Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2010

I have sent you an email to your email address shown on your home page. Is this correct?

Herahkti Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah it is. I just sent it over, sorry about the delay.
TomGranger Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2010
This image is fantastic! Would it be possible for you to send a higher resolution one to me please? I would like to be able to print it out on A0 for a poster in my home office if thats ok? So the higher the resolution the better really.

Thanks very much!
Herahkti Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
The original image is about 2800 x 2100 pixels at 180 pixels per inch so it comes out to about 15.5 wide x 11.5 high. Not really large enough for a poster but you're welcome to print it out, just PM me your email address and I'll send over the .psd file.

Just wanting to let you know how much I LOVE your work!!! I have been looking for a phoenix I like for over 10 years and instantly fell in love with yours. I would love for your work to be tattooed to cover my whole back with a slight variation if that's ok with you? I have been told it will take about 4 hours for the size that I want *shaking in my boots*
Herahkti Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
All I ask for is pictures of the tattoo. Have fun with those 4 hours haha.
vibot Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2010

Herahkti Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

This is pretty cool. I love phoenix. I was wondering what I would have to do, to get your permission to get this tattooed... please e-mail me at, its much easier to get a hold of me there.

Blackdawn-70631 Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Very nice indeed.
Herahkti Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thank you :D
GifHaas Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
Nice! Did you use a peacock or something of the like as your base for the pheonix? I prefer going with the hunting birds (eagle, hawk, etc.) due to the more predatorial hooked beak (Have always seen a pheonix as a flaming hunter ^^;)
Herahkti Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Birds of Paradise and Herons actually, I always thought of the Phoenix as like an elusive bird and was to be admired for it's beauty I guess. I admire birds with long necks but I have a soft spot for Raptors too.
GifHaas Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
If you like the long necks you should look into the secratary bird (atleast I think that is the english name for it ^^;)
Herahkti Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oh I love that bird ^_^ ~ <3 It's like a cross between a Crane and a Raptor, it reminds me of the Egyptian Vulture, kind of :D and yes that is it's name.
