Archangel Tattoo Design by ShawnCoss Archangel Tattoo Design by ShawnCoss
So a while back I spoke of a tattoo design i was doing for :iconsowncarcinogen: and how at the time we chose to not display it for the time being and how much it drove me crazy lol.

Well due to some unfortunate news that I won't get into, he has allowed me to show it off in light of all the new visitors to see some new stuff.

You can visit him and ask him the meaning behind it as I was merely the vessel creating the piece for him.

Just absolutely love the subject and the work, like few others asked before me could I use this as a base (to be possibly modified a bit) to my own tattoo ? (:

that's fantastic! do you take requests? Cuz I and my boyfriend wanna get a tattoo this weekend and are still looking for a good design and as soon as I saw your drawing I was like "now that's something to keep on your skin forever" so, I'd really appreciate it!

Thank you for the kind words on my art! Apologies though, I am currently not taking commissions for tattoo designs at this time. When I'm free, I'll be sure to post it on my front page.

wow this is amazing. I've been wanting to get an angel tattoo for some time now and I'm trying to stay clear of the david beckham angel, not that it's a bad tattoo or anything but it's just not my style. this on the other hand is just phenomenal and has given me other opitions and inspirations, you have a true talent.

I actually adore this design, it would definately warrant being a full back tattoo with the upper tips of the wings climbing the neck. I soo want this tattoo :)

This is a picture of pure awesomely amazing EPICNESS BEYOND MASS PROPORTIONS!!!! The wings are absolutey grogeous! (I'm jealous, my wings always come out really bad X__x) They're[the wings] so symetrical, how did you do that? You're anatomy is stunning as well :)

I cheated and flipped that shit in photoshop. Then kinda tweaked the size so they didn't look identical in all ways....is it cheating if the ability is there to do it? I think not!

Oooh, I suspected that, but who knows I think you have enough talent to have been able to do that free hand xD Hmm, I don't think it's cheating; it's cleverly utalizing the devices so graciously given to you by a probram installed on your computer :XD:

This is actually a design created for a specific person who commissioned me for it. So if you are looking for something original, know that this piece is already on someone else. If you still feel compelled then that's your call....and I always love pictures
