    So on the 1.5.14 I have booked in with my artist to get some more work done on my legs.

    I have been planning for a long time to get my other leg done to cover up the skin graft.

    Just tossing a general idea toying with for a biblical piece. (Atheists look away now ๐Ÿ˜‰ ).

    I fancy a full calf/thigh black and shade piece incoporating Moses on the mount.

    He will be holding up one of the tablet of stone. Above I want God’s arm and hand descending from the clouds with a tattoo machine.

    The tattoo machine will be engraving into the stone.

    Above it I fancy having God is an artist flowing through the clouds.

    My family have already declared me a heretic but it is something that I fancy doing and as I pointed out with the amount of ink I have already a bit more is not going to change anything.

    Anyhow thoughts and suggestions are always welcome.

    Take care
    Matthew

    Religious pieces and portraits are not my cup of tea, but your idea sounds intriguing.

    I defer further commenting to buttwheat as I believe he is well versed on Moses. (I know when he opens his mouth the “bull rushes”)

    Sounds like a cool spin on it. Go for it

    My artist did this Jesus on someone. Go weird or go home.

    That is weird, but I like it. I hope it gets colored in though.

    I’m not religious at all, but your ideas sound like they will make a very cool and interesting tattoo. It sounds very well thought out.

    Peter thanks for the images the second one is a very intriguing use of cloud and shade which I really like.
    That portrait is kinda odd but I can see the appeal – almost has a Polynesian hint to it. I really like art that challenges me.

    I am thinking of a fairly old school style inspired by an artist called Giora Eshkol he did some really fantastic nude studies on oil (http://www.eshkol.com/paintingEN12.html) and some of his stuff is really odd (in a good way :)) but this particular http://eshkol.com/paintingEN18a.html is the one (minus the people) from which I want to base it but with more detail on the face.

    I just wish I could afford to commission him.

    Thanks for the input though!

    I have a whole sleeve of religious work.(Working on the 2nd) I put my own spin on it though.

    I was never religious either until this year when I had a change in faith. I think your Idea is GREAT! I have so many Idea’s myself but no $$ right now to have them displayed on my skin..

    It’s a cool, unique idea. And I personally promise God’s not freaking out about your tattoo of Moses. The Guy’s omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent. It’s fine.
