Tattoo... by GretheFenyx Tattoo... by GretheFenyx
This is an entry for SunGryphon's Tattoo contest.

In this contest, she asks deviants to deesign a tattoo that is a combination of her children's names, which are Raven and Gabriel.
That is why I chose the Black wing and the White one, since that is what both names have in common, namely both are a creature with wings... a raven and an angel.
The fire represents passion, and/or a burning love for her children, and the heart obviously symbolising love...

I also decided to try and stick with the tribal idea, since so many of SunGryphon's other tattoos look similar, in other words, that way, this one won't look too much out of place...

This is really nice. But when I first looked at it, it struck me as meaning two different sides of an individual, dark and light, so to speak. And the fire/passion that burns inside everyone. Looking for tattoo ideas and this one strikes me as an awesome back piece. But after reading the description, I think this is a really clever way of incorporating that specific idea.

A+. :)

Thanks so much for the great words! :D I literally did this at a time where my artistic skill wasn't worth looking at, yet it's the most popular piece in my gallery :)
I am glad that people can take so much from it :)
