The inspiration for my tattoo illustrations comes from my travels abroad. The image below is of a mythical Thai creature called a Rajasi which is a stylised Lion with flames on his head, back and feet.
Here is the actual tattoo.
The image below is the God of the Sun from the Inca times in Peru. The first illustration was too complicated for the space available so had to be simplified to the version to the right.
Version 1 and version 2
This was drawn after a trip to Japan. I created a mini font which tried to merge the traditional characters with the modern district symbols found in Tokyo. The symbol at the top is the cherry blossom, the national flower of Japan.
