For when a photo just isn’t enough

Sirwesalot sent in a photo of his shoulder portrait.  When it comes to portrait tattoos they can be very hit or miss.  I know we’ve all seen that picture that’s been floating around the net for years of the “In Loving Memory” portrait that makes the woman look horrible.  Now this photo of Sirwesalot’s Grandad John by Edgar from London Road in London, is an example of a great portrait.  If I didn’t know it was a tattoo I would swear that it was charcoal on canvas, given how soft everything is.

  1. Simply beautiful. And would agree that its the softness of it that makes it so stunning.
