This piece is a collaboration with artist Martin Bridge, with whom I have had the pleasure and honor of working with in a number of artistic capacities over the years. The design is his, with his signature organic swirls and kinetic fire-like shading. It is tattooed on a mutual friend of ours who completed this piece in only two sittings with me. The tattoo manifests out of a wolf into twin stags with the antlers flowing over the shoulders to form a torque, symbolic of this young man’s sense of responsibility to his family, community and world in which he lives. Fire flanks all three animals and emphasizes the eyes of the Watcher in the center. There is one sitting left on this back piece to add a keystone symbol between the shoulder blades.
