Variations on Praying Hands

Recommended Posts

I love praying hands! I have a traditional pair from Scott Sylvia on my forearm with a banner that says "Thank You" to remind me to be grateful for all that I have.

I love what people come up with to make them a little different, unique, or more personal. Here's an example that my hubby just did on a kid who is a Harley mechanic.

*Please forgive the bad cell phone pic. It's all I had.

Good topic Gia. Thanks for starting it out with those, and for sharing Brandt's work, he's quite the ink shootin tatz wizzard these days.

hi . i saw some killer praying hands dont know who did them but they was in a suite with flame tatts on the wrists. also the handcuffed versions are pretty cooltoo. it always reminds me of the naughty catholic goins on,

i love the chain link added. hey it cud start a trend. say a doctor could have a stephascope added or say a soldier with dog tags . or maybe im being a dumbass lol. nice ink tho

from what i could see from ur phone pic.

I remember grinning broadly when I stumbled upon a photo of Frank Carter's praying hands tattoo. The hands are holding a microphone. It was the first time I had seen a non-traditional version and was truly astounded. I wish I cold find the picture.

Does he know that sure is misspelled on his leg?

Nah, its spelled right. Shure is a microphone company.

[Edit] Sorry Perez. Skipped over your post on the next page.

Zoooombie thread just in time for Halloween...

First off, sorry I haven't posted in awhile, I've been super busy with life post-wedding. That being said, I've been wanting to make time to get tattooed and it looks like sometime in the next two months is perfect.

I'm planning on praying hands and roses on my left pec to balance out my chest. Tattooer-wise, I'd love it to be Corbin or Hendricks, but I don't think those guys are coming through Austin anytime soon. I saw that Katja Ramirez has moved to Rock of Ages and her black and gray work is killer. I'll keep ya'll posted when I get an appointment.

    • looks like a solid shop!
    • You know, while I was getting tattoed we spoke about the full sleeve, since I've started with the idea to get it done (not in a short amount of time because due work my week is full) and he just said something about the druid girl. But we haven't any conversation about it anymore so it was kinda a flash instead of something wanted.  Then here COVID-19 came and we used to stay in lockdown per 2 months and just now tattoo studios opened (like one/2months ago) and I have to find a window of time where I can contact him. So basically nothing has started yet :)      This is what actually happened with the wolf. I went him saying "I want the face of a wolf here" and he did all the rest, surprising me with that moon etc so I was kinda surprised with the final effect because it wasn't what I exceptecd but It was what I wanted without even telling him the background.  It sounds weird but I gave him "free hands" and imho the result is stunning. So basically I would find the main subject (woman) and the background which suits the wolf (forest etc.). So I wanted to research something in terms of what I have in mind. But still, I will contact him for sure as long as we both have time to spare, finding what I like the most/suit the best  
    • He's a good artist... your concepts are all in the same vein... except the dryad girl which is a different direction. They aren't anything like what he was suggesting though. These also aren't what I'd think of initially when thinking of woman portraits... they are more surreal than what people commonly ask for.  Makes me wonder if you showed them to him yet? I'd give them to the artist, tell them a few things that you like and things you don't like about them... and put down a deposit so that he can start drawing.
