I already have many tats as we speak, but I am always fishing for new ideas.
I have been thinking of getting this particular tattoo idea done up on my inner bicep, but I am holding off until I can get it the way I want it.
Ok..the idea is this. An old school Virgin Guadalupana (Virgin Mary) image that I found out of the bible. In this image the virgin will be surrounded
by the beams of light and haze, only in mine she will be holding an infant Jesus.
Similar to the image I have linked to here, there will be the beams surrounding her. Only in my tat idea, the baby that she is holding and gazing at
will be a skeleton wrapped in a blanket showing only its skull.
There will be angels flying around and at her feet similar to the ones here, but in my design some of them will also be devils,
My idea and concept behind this image is that the virgin holding a skeleton represents the idea that man kind is born dead...we are all born into a
harsh unforgiving world and in essence we are all born to die.
The angels and devils will show the duality of man to be good and evil, and it will also be a statement against the religious establishment and
doctine, basically indicating that life in this world is unfair and that man is doomed from the start.
Pretty heavy stuff yes, but not really meant as a statement promoting evil or anything bad. More like a personal statemnt on the harsh realities of
life and the short comings of religion in general. Harsh maybe, but not meant to be sacreligious necesarrily.
So what do you think? Would this be a cool idea for a tat? Or would it be a bit too over the top and blasphemous?
Also...any fine artists on here who would care to take a stab at putting together what I have described here would be more than welcome to do so. If
it is really good I may just use your design and credit you with the art.
