War by LucitaniaMarie War by LucitaniaMarie
This is war.
here is the other one:

i was thinking about how war was personified in ancient times by pagan cultures and the different symbols they used to symbolize death, fear, and intimidation.
so i tried to think of what kind of modern symbols of war i could integrate into ancient symbols of war.
ak47
severed fingers.
the number seven
razor blades
whoohoo
but yah, that tattoo is inspired by lizette's tattoos cause they're friggin awesome.

theme song: velvet acid christ's "blood"
i guess if my P_9 inspired stuff could be called P_9 art this could be considered velvet acid christ art.

how very awesome this is. A great mix of old and new symbols of war, I think most people would be surprised by how many goddesses of war they are in myth thought the world, and I adore the fact that you personified war as female for that reason.

it's been a while since I've gone through my favorites and GODDAMN!!!!
THIS is my favorite favorite. I've been going through a whole indian headdress warrior tank girl phase and THIS is the shit :D

So, my brain thanks you for coming up with what I've been trying to pin, and hopefully I reap inspiration from you!

You've probably heard this before, but do you know what those tattoos remind me of? Target bullseyes at a firing range.

Oh yeah, like the old fashion targets! I actually never thought of that, but you're right!
One of my friends totally has a tattoo of the modern bullseye too, and this one was modeled off another friend's tattoo. Kind cool...

Sorry I didn't mean that to sound sarcastic, I just am asking if you got the impression that I thought it was. I can't tell if your comment is a statement or a criticism or what? Sorry no tone on the internet >___< I'm just trying to understand what you mean.

Reminds me of the old 'Beast of War' poster that was released in Germany in the '30s. It featured War as a massive human-like spider with two massive machine guns and a Soviet helmet. EXCELLENT job!
