Oldschool Backpiece

Juliana sends in this pictures of her backpiece by Jeremy Swan at Broken Art Tattoo in Los Angeles, CA (photo taken by her friend Rebecca before the 2004 Inkslinger’s Ball). The tattoo was done over five sessions of three and a half to five hours each, between May 2003 and May 2004, and completed on Juliana’s 41st birthday.

  1. So interesting to watch..
    I think i just stared at it for the last 10 minutes.
    beautiful lady, beautiful cartoonish panther.
    i just love that backpiece!

  2. One of the best pieces of traditional style tattooing I’ve ever seen! I really like the color and the overall layout of the design. It fows really well.

  3. That rocks so much. I love that it is kinda feminine and still “tough’? for want of a better word. What an awesome birthday present that would’ve been.

  4. I really appreciate this piece because symbolically speaking it sends a very interesting message playing on the American traditional tattoo ideology.

    I am impressed. It’s not every day I can look at traditional work lately and actually be able to read it as opposed to yawning a bit and saying “oh, a sparrow.”
