  1. wow thats amazing! a lot a lot of black work. is he getting the final two stripe things filled in? i think i like them left unfilled, as it breaks it up, but i think filled in they would look awesome too.

  2. They are similar but is it a copycat? It’s such an organic design, I can see how it could be duplicated many times over unintentionally.

  3. i like it a lot
    from which tribe or group is it a traditional design
    i want to search more about that
    grets

  4. not a huge fan of large solid black pieces, but i have to admit that’d be pretty damn sexy to wake up and have to look at :)

  5. Wow, that’s beautiful. For me, personally, I think it would flow better if the top black part continued the pattern and wasn’t filled in. Very nice :D

  6. Love bold traditionals! This is gorgeous.

    The first thing I thought was, “How long does it take something like that to heal?”

  7. Makes me itch just thinking about the healing process on this one!
    Looks like it’s a cover-up, you can kind of make out flowers or something under the black…

  8. I totally would want to wake up to that.
    It’s pretty damn sexy if you ask me.

  9. I personally don’t like the negative space he’s left in the tattoo. It would look so much better fully filled in. He might be going back to get it filled I hope.

  10. I love tattoos like this, big, bold and black. Where does this design originate from, is it Mayan?

  11. I am making to cover up in the part most black, I go to make a scar where this all black color, I go to try to make the continuation of the original drawing.

    excuse, my English is not very good
