What do you think? Of this work in ink? #3

Much of the inspiration has come from traditional culture, dying scripts and art forms, personal experiences and exposure to foreign culture.

That one is kind of cool.
Ayush Basu: I am sure there is some symbolism behind, it could be a stylized representation of something that this bearer holds in high regard.

It makes it more interesting to understand that there may well be significant origins to the designs, Ayush
Ayush Basu: I find that mostly people do give a significant thought about the patterns they want and they want to get something that stands out.

While it makes same sense to understand the origin and the significance of the tattoo, I still think one's skin should not be disfigured in such a way.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for your input Alan, too often in the present, people treat it as an adornment.
I prefer Oriental design smile
A dragon or a tiger maybe wink
Ha ha...
Ayush Basu: It is definitely very popular. I have heard a few interesting things about the origin of dragons. smile

I am prepared to accept it has deep hidden meaning - or none whatever
It is interesting tattoo smile Regards
Ayush Basu: Thank you. Some tattoos are very fascinating to me. smile
I never did understand the need to decorate smile
Ayush Basu: Perhaps some people are a bit short on the grey cells tongue Read about this young fellow here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2595456/McStupid-supersized-Norwegian-teen-tattoo-McDonalds-order-bill-bizarre-inking-etched-OTHER-arm.html

That is an interesting design Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I am guessing it could be a stylized representation of a mythical winged creature, Chad. Not sure though.
is that a tribal tattoo?
Ayush Basu: Could be, Chantal. I am guessing it could be a stylized representation of a mythical winged creature. Not sure though.
It is very nice but can't put any ideas as to what it means.
Ayush Basu: I am guessing it could be a stylized representation of a mythical winged creature, Scotia. Not sure though.

I have mixed feelings about tattoos - some are really interesting designs, but others leave me cold
Ayush Basu: Definitely. I just read a piece of news perhaps a few weeks ago about this kid in Norway who lost a bet to his friends and the catch was that he would have to get a McDonalds receipt tattooed on his forearm. Now THAT is something one imagines would be regrettable in ten, fifteen, twenty years!
I like the design of this one, Ayush smile
Ayush Basu: Pleased to know you like this, Martin. I am guessing it could be a stylized representation of a mythical winged creature. Not sure though.
There must be a story behind it Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Oh I am quite sure of it Richard. I gather that the tattoo artists have entire catalogues of designs and on being asked, they will share the origin of the particular tattoo.

Very interesting design!
Ayush Basu: I am guessing it could be a stylized representation of a mythical winged creature, Hollie. Not sure though.

Mine are all skulls, dragons....and horror
Ayush Basu: Oh I see, so I suppose you can relate to the motivation behind getting a tattoo, Shane.

This one is more discreet and can be covered up with a short sleeve shirt on occasions when it is not appropriate to display tattoos...
Ayush Basu: Yes, agreed. A lot of people do take that into consideration, Cherie.
This reminds me of some Celtic designs? I'd like to know what it represents!
Ayush Basu: I am guessing it could be a stylized representation of a mythical winged creature. Not sure though, Elizabeth. Thank you.

This one is more to my taste than comic characters - something he may not live to regret!

In some cultures, everyone has a tattoo. In olden day Africa, some tribes made the tattoo, by carving the lines with a knife and then rubbing ashes into the wound. The result was a welt that showed up with a darkish foundation.
I like it...
