Hey, check out this great Monster Engine (specifically) tattoo that Herger (he calls it “the beast with two hearts”) had done by Boris Tattoo in Zalaegerszeg, Hungary. If you don’t already know Monster Engine, it’s interpretations of childrens’ drawing by Dave Devries.
That is just about the most rad thing I’ve seen in a long time. Excellent execution of the original painting, too.
That was my first experience with monster engine… Wow. Funniest, most amazing thing I’ve seen in a while. I want to buy an original.
I LOVE the Monster Engine.
wahhhh thats creepy!
this is sort of…disturbingly cute.
oooh, I really like this
That mouth is most captivating. My favourite piece of the whole picture in fact
He He He
Jep, i admit that it might be a little bit creepy indeed… but the thought behind the whole thing was to separate my sleeve into 3 sections (childhood, time as a teenager & current ‘adult’ state), each of whom do represent my fascination related to comic & fantasy themes. And seeing that certain interpretation of a childrens’ drawing for the first time, totally blew me away… for me definitely the best & most logical consequence to get the beast tattooed.
hi, i’m dave devries, the artist of the monster engine….wow this was really cool to see my work as a tattoo. i liked your title as well.
Oh, that of course is awesome!
Really glad you like it. Guess the fact, that i adore your work, is pretty obvious & needless to mention, isn’t it hahaha
Herger, thanks for your kind words. I was truly amazed when I saw that you did this. I’ve had people tattoo my DC and Marvel Comics work before but you are definitely the only person I’ve seen who used The Monster Engine as inspiration. Boris did a wonderful job on this–I was really impressed. My niece Alyson was the child who drew the picture and she was blown away by the tattoed version. She drew it when she was 6 I think but she’s now 11. She’s been telling her friends about it. In any event, thanks for sharing. Can I post your picture on my new Monster Engine site? It will go live in mid January. I’ll link you as well. Thanks!
