Mermaid Tat

Here's a tattoo design I did for a friend I used to work with. Although a bunch of my images or characters have been made into tattoos I think this was the first time I set out to design a tattoo. I like how simple it is and how the ends hook back on themselves but it doesn't quite look like most tattoos I've seen which is possibly why it was never confirmed to skin.

If you like it and want to use it, go to town. I'd love to see it etched onto a person.

I like this :) I'm trying to design a merman "triton"-esk character for a friend, and I can't seem to get it how i like.

i like this tho. nice and simple, but it moves ;)

I'm actually thinking of getting a giant squid tattooed on me such that it starts on my back and it's arms wrap around my shoulders, back, chest, etc based on a design from the new Monkey Island game.

I've always told people I couldn't get a tattoo because I was waiting for you to design one. Now I'll have to say that you haven't specifically designed a Max tattoo and that's why I am still waiting.

Hey, I really like this. Do you think you could do like a Merman version of this? I'd really like to get this as a back piece eventually.
