This is gonna be her First Big Tattoo. (her whole right arm)

She wanted

yea. it looks cool on paper. luckily it turned out pretty cool still on skin. :)
a unique tattoo like this would actually be cool. most peoples tattoos are very generic D:

how did you come up with that caoncept?

the first sheet included different angel poses
in different styles (inferno (barry moser), cherubim, typical tattoo, abstract.. etc)
while trying to show the compassion, the sacrifice, and the dragonsnappers

then on the next sheet, it was a detailed study of one pose and all possible parts attached to it. like a toy model manual. with notes and captions. haha.

then i found a pose to stick with
and with photocopying and re-editing
i kept changing limbs, hair, wings, plants
til i ended up with this

that is an awesome tattoo. i love how the wings are bones. Feathers look really good and love the flowers!
i would never get a tattoo cause i hate needles so i just use a permanent marker XD
