Those noble creatures, friends, are narwhals, proudly displayed on twylasue‘s chest and tattooed by Tom Keeney at Classic Electric Tattoo in Frederick, MD. (More from twylasue on ModBlog here.)
And, because I’m charitable, I’ve included a highly informative video about the narwhal below:
… wow. Put your brains back together, ModBlog, and we’ll see you in the morning.
See more in “Old School (and Old) Tattoos“ (Tattoos)
HAHAH thats one funny vid.
hes absolutely got the prettiest eyes in all the world. just as an aside.
every time i’ve seen a reference towards a narwhal i never expected them to be so…evil? that video totally ruined my image of them.
on a related note, that tattoo is awesome..and i’m really interested to see, what i’m assuming is, that elephant lower on his stomach.
possibly the best video ever made
this vid made my night ^^ really…loved it…forgot all about the tattoo xD
That… was pretty much the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. Cool tattoo, too.
mod blog you are always here for me. even when i mistreat you, abuse you verbally and tell all my friends that you liek it in the butt, you are still here for me. i will always have you like Al Capone has syphilis which eventually killed him because it thought he sucked.
hey, classic electric rules! i used to live in shepherdstown, auh.
I really like the way the nipples blend in so well with the art.
best video ever!
Narwhals are cute!
The video is a bit random though. hahaha.
that video confuses me very very much and for some reason i think i’m going to wake up screaming thanks to it but i like the tattoo
I’m so over-tired
the tails on the tattoo’s narwhals are drawn extremely well, and I like the spotty backs. Nice one
I haven’t seen that video in *forever*. I would sooooo see this movie. “I’ve just been kinda busy with this whole celestial battlemaiden thing…” Delightful.
I like the tattoo, too. We don’t seem to get enough sea-mammal-themed tattoos on the modblog.
this is probably one of my most favorite chest pieces i’ve seen on here..
i love narwhals.
Oooo I have been planning a Narwhal chest piece for a few months now!! Almost done drawing it up, mine are not as evil-looking as these :p But I’m happy to see someone else showing Narwhal respect!! 😀 Good anatomy there too – the Narwhal’s ‘horn’ is actually a sort of overgrown tooth, so it comes out of the mouth, doesn’t randomly stick out the middle of the head like some people draw it XD
at first i thought his nips were flowers in the piece. very cool and well donw
it took me a really long time to locate his nipples
i thought that was kinda stupid, a lil funny, but could def find better ways to entertain myself
“I’ll pump my little dragon wings as fast as I can”
I recognise one of the names in the credits. How many “Alex Duckworth”s could there be?
i love narwhals!!
I knew I knew this chestpiece!
I’m so glad ot see it with colour, it looks even better 😀
and that video, is my new obsession.
1000 thanks ModBlog, you’ve ruined my life again.
I have always loved this piece! you should post his elephants too, they’re so pretty!
Aha! This is really amazing.
amazing tattoo, amazing video.
nice to see someone else with a narwal tattoo…my tattoo artist didn’t even know what it was when I asked for it
never seen that before
This is awesome. I have a narwhal on my hip, and I love seeing other people with narwhal tattoos. It’s always such a treat.
Those Calart kids are always coming up with weird shit. Funny though.
