I don't "get" the connection between this piece and tattoo... but the artwork is arresting. Love the wateriness... Looks tearful and anguished to me.

Tattoo is in the eye of the beholder? A wonderful illustration.

I always admire your watercolors and the wonderful shapes and mood you create with the bleeding colors. Tattoo? Well, maybe this is the eye of the tattoo artist after spending sveral hours doing close detailed work...

I like this because it illicits lots of ideas -- the way images are impressed (or tattood) on are brains via the eyes, for example. Is this pen & colored ink?
