Pieta on Living Canvas

2012 ArtPrize Entry

"Pieta on Living Canvas" is a full back tattoo. Using only needles and ink, I try to show tattooing in its fine art form, capturing the emotion of the piece depicting Mary holding Jesus as he came off the cross. I have approx. 30 hours into this piece, concentrating on the detail that can be put into body art, that a lot of people might not be aware. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOTICE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am now being hosted at: Take Hold Church 222 Division THANK YOU!
