This is the tattoo that covers the entire back of Rayne, one of my vampire characters. It's actually the first time I've tried to design a tattoo so I hope you guys like it.

sick design. mind if i get this tattooed? would mean a lot to me/

:-) Nikki van de Pol replies: "It’s okay as long as you make sure the tattoo shop knows it’s my design and won’t sell it to other people as well. Also I’d like to have a picture of the result, it won’t be displayed in my gallery without your permission of course, but I’d just like to see the result. "

This reminds me of the art of Inca or Aztec tribes, I like the line work.

:-) Nikki van de Pol replies: "Well it wasn’t based on their art, but I’ve always sort of liked those cultures, so I definitely take it as a nice compliment 2 Thanks a lot 1"

wow, its very nice. ive never seen anyone draw a phoenix tatoo before, but it is very nice!

:-) Nikki van de Pol replies: "Thanks 2 And yeah, I guess this is just what you get if boredom, detail-obsession and fantasy-interest meet. 12 Plus, the phoenix is sort of symbolical for Rayne, my vampire character whose tattoo this is, because you can’t get him killed either 14"

loooove it can i get it done on myself pls i didn’t want to do it with out permission

:-) Nikki van de Pol replies: "First of all, thanks for the compliment 2 And about your question it’s okay as long as you make sure the tattoo shop knows it’s my design and won’t sell it to other people as well. (after all, if I’m not making money on it, I don’t want them to do so either 12 ) Also I’d very much like to have a picture of the result, if you’d be so kind. It won’t be displayed in my gallery without your permission of course, but I’d just like to see the result. "

Look how i did it on me, i change some parts of it, like the wings i "open" the wings a little, and the tail are bigger than the original, and i change the base of the wings too (this change was not so good)... here is the picture.

Nikki - I love this image. I would really like to get it tattooed on my arm with the phoenix coming out of a lotus petal. Do you mind if I adopt your image?
