Black and Gray Tattoos
Polynesian Armband tattoo
The intricacy and abstract nature of Polynesian armband tattoo have led to their continued popularity for hundreds of years. They are some of the most varied and eye-catching designs available anywhere in the world, and they have such a wide spectrum of meanings that just about anyone can find a tribal armband tattoo that fits with their life.
Beetles have also caught the eye, and prayers, of those people seeking Divine intervention. By far, the most well-known beetle to grace the surface of religious artifacts is the Scarab Beetle. Known as ‘The Creator’ or ‘The Khepri’ in ancient Egypt, Scarab Beetles were believed to be a representation of the Sun God and the way they rolled their dung ball across the hot desert sands was said to be a cosmic re-enactment of the ancient Sun god, Atum, pushing the sun across the vast sky.
Fascinating Sternum Piece
I like the way this design incorporates the whole Alien busting out of your innards concept without trying to go all hyper-realistic around the edges (it rarely works even for the most skilled of artists).
