Another Tribal by damphyr Another Tribal by damphyr
I really need a better title for this. ^^;

This is a tattoo I designed on commission, am probably going to alter it a little and use that desgin on my charrie, Puma. I'm really pleased with most of this, there are parts that need to be edited a bit still. Not bad for tattoo attempt #2, methinks. :D

Next I have to finish up the design for +amolerouth's tattoo. :aww:

Sketched out by hand, polished off in Illustrator.

Reminds me a bit of the shape of a cello. Very nice.

Ooh, great work!
I like this just as much as your raven design!
And for some reason the name Faceless Entity pops into mind looking at it. Anyway great work and I belive this shall join your Raven design in my favourites!

*chuckles* What pseudomask said. I really can't compere with her.
What I CAN say is that to me, it looks like a very feminine drawing. Dont ask me why, but the moment I saw it, I said "Queen". It would look wonderful on a girl, and though I agree with diamondscan 's suggestions on where to put it, I think it would look incredibly nice either above the breasts (like if it was a "pendant") or on the upper part of the arm, almost at the shoulder.

Very royal. Black and Red would be the colours I'd use (like the Queen of Spades and Queen of Hearts) :)

This has an antique feel to it. You know...a very porcelian (I know I couldn't have possibly spelt that right ^^; ) feel,in fact. This would make an excellent design for the lower back. Or right between the shoulder blades. Very cool!

:jawdrop: Wow, I never knew you were so good at designing tattoos!! It looks so polished and professional... amazing design work!

I love your use of space. You really balanced this out by varying your line thickness, so that one half isn't heavier than the other.

The basic layout almost seems symmetric at first glance, but once you look a little closer (which you can't help, because the intricate design really pulls you in) you notice it isn't.

I love the repeated shapes in this, from the contrasting sharp angles to the smoother circular designs.

Sweet design, I'll have to agree with * diamondscan this as to where to place this. I also think the neck/down the back would be awesome, just to see a hint at the top, so you wonderful want the rest of the tattoo.

It would also work for cleavage I suppose :giggle:

nice and original. doesnt it annoy you though that tribals always end up looking like they have a number of faces in them? even if its unintentional? ...well it annoys me anyways...good job :)

Too damn cool :heart: You draw awesome tatoo designs, really.
GreenHorsesOnTheWall Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2004
This is awesome! Quite unique it seems to be, from my limited knowledge of tribal tatoo art. Hehe, it kinda looks like an uptight English queen or something! :)
diamondscan Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2004
It's so symmetrical and perfect that it seems fitting to place it in the middle of a back, between breasts, or even between the eyes. It would say "Look at me. I am a tatoo and I am a badass tatoo at that."
