Now, I’ve mentioned time and time again that I think Dave Gillstrap is one of the most talented and cutting edge scarification artists working in the world today. However, and I feel terrible saying this, but when I see these angel wings on Allison, all I can think of is the hullaballoo about the “shell with hidden penis tattoo” a while back.
All I can think of though when I see the top of the wing (mostly because of the glans-defining blood droplet), is that it’s supposed to be a horse penis. I’m sure it will heal fine and of course it’s in part an illusion because of the blood, but in these fresh photos that’s all I keep seeing when I look… Ehhh… My mind is probably warped by looking at too many human penises.
But anyway, I think that piece will look amazng when it’s done, almost like the ghostly white shadow of wings on her back rather than an explicit image like you’d get with a tattoo.
