Illustration Friday: Tattoo: Sea Life


Sea Life, originally uploaded by beyondhope.

I'm not really a big fan of Tattoos. I don't mind if others put art on their bodies --I just prefer to keep my art on paper and canvas!

But, if I were going to choose something - it would be fashioned after some undersea life. I've always been fascinated with the creatures that live beneath the surface of our waters and envy my brother-in-law who is working toward his Master Diver's certification. I'm sure that the world he sees is beyond description!

So --here's my submission for this week's Illustration Friday --Sea Life --it could be a tattoo...no?

I love this fish. I think your BIL needs one so when he dives the fish will think he is a friend:) Great job!

Lovely flow to the miriad of colors in this engaging fish. Very serene.

Must hurt though ..... If tattooing I WOULD ONLY PUT a black dot beside my lip. That is hurting enough!

Ahhh, master diver? Actually, I'm both a PADI Master Scuba Diver and a PADI Divemaster. I'm working on instructor certification.

Who would you guess that I am ? said...

Fish Tattoo? Afraid it may not become the new fad. Unless,..well maybe you could rotate it left to an upright position, fashion some sheer lingerie, gave it bright red lipstick, holding an umbrella garnished tropical beverage , with an adorning sash inscribed worlds greatest mom. Then maybe.....maybe a...a...a! sub culture fish monger's tattoo parlor in Tahiti would pick up the design and pay you big bucks.
