Lightning in a bottle

Roger from Star City Tattoo in Roanoke, VA has been featured quite a bit lately.  And for good reason.  He’s continually sending in photos of great work.  Although out of all the tattoos he’s submitted, this one has to be my favorite.

The anatomically correct heart, the directional blood flow, the tree being struck by lightning, it all works brilliantly together.  I also like how the lower half of the heart is done with a strong outline, yet the top half isn’t, giving the top an organic feel, while the bottom resembles a glass jar.

  1. I like it. Is there an embedded Frankenstein reference with the lightning/oak tree and the objectively illustrated heart?
