Tribe of Heart by RaNuit Tribe of Heart by RaNuit
Custom done for client as a memorial to his wife who passed away from breast cancer
He is of the germanic-norse tribes and for that wanted the spiked waves/stylized flames to show his passion always burned for her even now
She was of the celtic tribes from the highlands and for that he asked a celtic heart to show that she was his heart and soul.

He said he would gladly wear this mark the remainder of his life, if only to have her look from heaven to smile upon his ever living tribute to her.

When I saw a picture of her, and of him on thier wedding day I smiled, told him I would not accept payment for the work and I would even get him in touch with a friend of mine who guns with the best of them.... I do not think I have ever seen a man cry for the sheer overwhelming nature of a moment...

Beautiful, but with a dangerous overtone.

Very nicely done.

That is horrible. I don't think I could go through losing my wife (well if i had a wife, you know what i mean). You are very kind to create this beautiful artwork for him free of charge. It looks amazing!...... ...... ......

awe, thank you dear, thats so sweet of you to say. He was very pleased with it. He isn't sure if he is getting the blacking done now or just the outlines... he might want color to it later on.
