People who have me added on Facebook may have noticed me complaining late last night about the difficulty in tracking down an artist. The reason I was up late was because I was trying to find the artist responsible for this beautiful creation.
After some MySpace hopping, and Googling, I finally found the artist. It is none other than Jackie Rabbit, from Star City Tattoos in Roanoke, VA. This sleeve, as well as a number of her other pieces were submitted this week, so expect to see more from Jackie. I’ve added a couple of close-ups to the post, but to get the full sized images, you can see them in the miscellaneous tattoo gallery.
Keep on reading if you’d like to get a better look at the chapel and statue…
Like I said earlier, this is just beautiful. She’s managed to capture the finer details of both the church and the monument, while still adding an artistic flair to the piece. The darkness of the woods surrounding the angel brings a sense of sadness that is counterbalanced with the brightness of the sky, bringing hope to those who look for it in a church.
Again, please head on over to the tattoo galleries to get an even closer look. If you’re having problems seeing the photos in the gallery, make sure that you’re signed in to your BME account, and if you don’t have one, simply signing up for a free subscription will get you access to more photos in the galleries.
