Tiger tattoos

Recommended Posts

Not dissing it but this reminds me of the kitsch black velvet paintings that were popular in the 70's and 80's .

Ya mean I gotta take my velvet Elvis down?!?!?!?!

haha, i love those!

When I was growing up my granny and grandpa had a bunch of black light posters in their basement from when my mom, aunt, and uncle were growing up and one of them was of a panther and I'd say that stuff like that is probably the main underlying reason why I'm drawn to a lot of this imagery in the first place. So yeah, not a diss at all!

I'm a bit biased being an ongoing client, but I personally love Henning Jorgensen's tigers. I plan on getting one on my front right thigh soon as he finishes up my left thigh and the collaboration back piece he's working with Rubendall on. Check out the pics!

@ironchef Henning was doing a huge (ie armpit to thigh) rib tiger on a guy at the Montreal convention last year and I will totally back you on Henning's tigers being amazing. Seeing that tattoo was one of those moments that happen embarassingly often with me where I am like "oh fuck, looking at pictures of tattoos on the internet or in books or in magazines is cool, but I really need to see more tattoos in real life because it's not the same thing". I need to get tattooed by Henning.

@Graeme I believe Henning was working on Lucas Ford, machine builder and tattooer. Pics of his piece are at the bottom of the post above. AMAZING but I already made up my mind even before that to get a tiger from Henning.

Yep, that's the one! I responded before you posted that picture. And yes, so amazing and the pictures really don't even come close.

Such a dynamic piece! Really powerful image. Here's the three pieces that true put it over the top for me from Henning. These will eventually be the inspiration for the one I want to get on my thigh:

Those tattoo looks very great. Mainly tigers are associated with power, ferocity, passion and sensuality, beauty and speed, cruelty and wrath. The appearance of a tiger in a dream may signal that new power or passion may awaken within you.

As per the my view the tattoo of tiger is the symbol of power. My friends draw the tattoo of tiger in different part of their body. The artist draw such a great job to draw that tattoo.
