Watercolour Play


I found a drawing of a raven / crow that I had done during my college years. I was really pleased with this drawing and it was featured in a poster idea for one of my units during my first year. Now I have found it again, it has been in my mind that it would make an excellent tattoo as it is. However, I have been fascinated with watercolour style tattoos because they are just wonderful, and full of individuality that no other tattoo style has already. (Don’t get me wrong, other styles of tattooing are amazing and have individuality, it’s just my personal views is that no watercolour tattoo is the same, and no ordinary tattoo is the same) It’s new, modern and perfect for what I would have tattooed on to my skin.

So, I dug out some tracing paper, and my watercolours and I sat and played with blues and purples. This is the result.

If I were to get this tattooed, the outlines I would like to be thinner, bolder and darker. The shades of blue and purple I would love to be brighter, and more true.

Now the other question is where would I have it?

I have thought about my upper back, with the wings branching out onto my shoulders. I have also thought about a smaller version for my wrist or hip.

    • It may be due to the fact I am just getting the hang of editing my images, so that they load without too much hastle.
      But what ever the issue is, they seem to load up fine on any computer I visit.
      Hope the issue has worked itself out, apologies for any inconvenience
