Hindu Hand Portraits

These great God/Goddess tattoos were done on Victor by Augustine at Insane Skin Art in Singapore (which feels to me like it’s growing to be a new Eastern mecca of body modification — so many wonderful BME submissions have been coming in from Singapore lately).

  1. i also wish that they werent on the hands but besides that, theyre lovely

  2. not a personal fan of the purple shading/green outline combo…. but well executed overall.

  3. I think this is wonderful +because+ its on hands. The artist must know this area well to acheive something this pretty on such an odd surface. And as for fading- pff. Whats a few touch ups? Everyone will see this, and at least it looks reallllly good. Its much nicer than knuckle lettering. I think it has an elegance to it.

  4. they’re extremely well done! Out of curiosity, does anybody know which gods/goddesses they are?
