Found this in my picture files. It is not the best pic and even has bra strap marks running through it, but I really liked the theme of this one so here it is… She is a hell taker! The idea was this spider like gall went to hell and basically kicked some devil butt. Now she is sitting there showing the skull of old Beelzebub with a background featuring the flames of hell itself and demons kinda showing (my brain says dancing) in the flames. This is obviously an aged tattoo (at time of photo) and I really wish I had been able to get a better pic. I always prefer aged over freshly healed and healed over fresh done when it comes to tattoos.
The client had really thought this one out and had a ton of references. I basically put them all together kinda like a paste up / collage, but by drawing all the bits together. No guesswork was needed… Boots, body, lips, garter belt, jewelry, demons, flames, pillars, zipper, skull, the whole works all came on separate printouts. Overall I like the outcome and totally dig the theme.
