Ecstasy in Grey

I got a message a couple days ago from Allen telling me to check out the work of Dallas artist Mike Tidwell from Hold Fast Tattoo.  What caught Allen’s eye was this piece, a greyscale replica of Alex Grey’s “Ecstasy”.

Given how intricate Alex Grey’s art is, Mike should be commended for such an accurate recreation.  Let’s hope we see more from him in the future.

  1. I’ve always been curious as to how an Alex Gray piece would translate into a tattoo, and it was executed perfectly. Taking the color out of it was the way to go =)
