this is really beautiful! A friend of mine is planning on getting a phoenix tattoo and has asked another friend and myself to help design it so i'm looking for inspiration on here, there are some really amazing tattoos on dA, yours included!!
Wow that's an amazing tattoo! I just recently got a phoenix on my side. It goes from my hip all the way to the end of my boobs...It hurt so bad I'm doing it in sessions so I only have the outline. I can only imagine how painful that must have been for 17hrs of work!
I think this has to be my most favorite tattoo I have ever seen. I love the colors and the placement and everything- do you have a full picture available? who/where did you have it done? i would love to have one with similiar colors (though i would probably make adjustments with the head and the beak). (If you don't want a copy-catter, don't worry, had no intentions of stealing it feather for feather! )
this tat is kickass, I'm currently searching for the perfect tattoo. The only problem is I have no idea what i want or where to put it. I've thought about the phoenix because of what it represents and it's meaningful to me, but I just want one thats original and not a copy. I love to draw as well so i've been searching all over for different pics of the bird and I plan on creating one myself. Maybe I'll get some ideas from this! thx
My artists name is Gilbert. He is currently in Escondido, CA. But travels all over for tattoo work.
I actually looked for about a year, at sites like deviant art and even google, for art of phoenixes. I then printed out all the different pictures, and told my artist what parts of what birds I liked. We created the idea for my phoenix and he drew it up. It just takes time, but if you look, inspiration will come.
