Cosmic Phoenix Tattoo by Lucky978 Cosmic Phoenix Tattoo by Lucky978
As promised, I have been on hiatus the past couple of months while I have been working on a number of large commissions! While I can’t share quite a few just yet, I am super pumped to be wrapped up on this giant Phoenix/space themed back piece. This drawing is massive; drawn at full scale to fit the client’s back which has a pre-existing tattoo in the upper right shoulder. I am honored to be adding so many elements ❤️❤️ It is always a privilege to work on tattoos since they are permanent installations on the body! Thank you!

Oh. My. Goodness! This is gorgeus! I never understood how people could create art like this tradional and not digital! Tattoo designs are cool just because they are tattoos but - wow! Your work is so detailed and has so many colours, I don't even know, where to start! It's also a pretty cool coincidence that this tattoo has some of my favourite subjects in it! Fantasy and space! I love how the background looks like ink flowing over a surface and how the colours are "merging" into one each other. Your art made me pretty much speechless, I don't really know what to say, it is so gorgeous! You are so talented and it's obvious that You are very dedicated and You love to draw and design. You must have a lot of practice for Your work to be able turning out to pretty! It doesn't look like a drawing but rather as though You had it printed out, I am in love with this!
Thumbs up and DO NOT stop designing tattoos, this is so beautiful! Bunny Emoji-89 (Cheer) [V5]  I hope You have a wonderful weekend and wish You a lot of inspiration!

So many beautiful details! I can't imagine sitting and getting this all colored in though...the commissioner's tattoo artist must be fantastic to work with this as well!

Any way to get an update to see it when they have it finished you think?

Either way, this piece is incredible!

this is so beautiful! I love the saturation and colors of everything and especially love the phoenix and spacey design.
if its not to much trouble, could you list some of the things you used? paper included? every time I try really saturated designs either my pencils aren't working or the paper begins to have trouble :/
(maybe I just haven't found 'The One' yet paper wise XD)

The tattoo artist will need to pound in those blacks for sure (which is why it is a little darker than a typical watercolor) :) If you look up some other healed space tattoos, the ones that hold up have really solid darks. I'm not the tattooist though, so it is definitely up to their discretion. From looking at their past work, they really know what they're doing. Thank you though!

Oh rad! Then I'll trust that tattooist.
This is really beautiful work, sorry I think I might have come off as a little rude.

Lucky978 Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2018  Professional Traditional Artist
Oh no! Not rude at all :) It is a very good question. A lot of watercolor/colorful tattoos can get washed out overtime if not properly applied or saturated. And any tattoo will have some fading for sure
