This one's a long story... it all started when a 'greek mythology based' painting was assigned in my art class Junior year. We had to incorperate something that was extremely interesting to us, so I went with tattoo designs. The girl (who isn't well-done at all... but the painting also wasn't finished at this point) was on the cover of a tattoo magazine that was focusing on old school 'Sailor Jerry' tattoo art. And since sirens were creatures in greek mythology who tempted sailors with their singing/screaming, I decided to give the incorperation a try. I'm really proud of how the swallows turned out, as well as the banner. Acrylic paint on canvas.
