Tattooed Kitty by katat0nik Tattooed Kitty by katat0nik
Medium: Prismacolor colored pencils, ink
Size: 2.5" x 3.5"

This is one of my earlier mini drawings, and will always be one of my favorites. It took forever to do all the little lines in the tattoos, because I had to keep sharpening my pencils after every few strokes.
This artwork features a half cream, half mulberry colored kitty with Japanese style tattoos. The symbol on the moon says "Beauty" in Japanese. :)
I have another tattooed kitty Here.

Ah... here it is! July's image! I know I said this many times, but I can't help it but being surprised at your patience for being able to do such detailed paintings in so small formats...! I love the diagonal composition and the colours' choice... it seems so peaceful. Awesome!

Thank you so much Diego! This was one of my early miniatures and I really pushed myself to get as much detail as possible onto that kitty :faint: I'm very proud of this one :D

Aw, she's so cute and delicate. ^_^
I like Japanese tattoos, but I would never personally get one because they're too "serious" for me, but that almost "chibi-fied" version of koi and waves that she has looks like something I would get.

Hi, thanks so much!:hug:
I feel the same about Japanese tattoos. They look good, but lack the playful quality that many people like in tattoos. :D

lol you're right! I should have drawn the kitty holding a knife or something, as a message to other cats not to mess with it....

Great talent to paint so small! I like the koi in the water!

Did you ever hear of the artist that painted a Panda on a strand of hair?
Lets see how small you can go!
