Boar Head Tattoo

Nolan got this boar head with a spear going through it tattooed on his inner arm a few weeks ago. This was a great project, it was fun to play around with the similarities between the structure of a boar’s head and a wolf’s head. I also really enjoy tattooing gory imagery, which would probably surprise a lot of people who know me! What I like about it is the challenge of capturing the movement of something like a spear moving through an animal, and studying how the blood, hair, skin, etc reacts to that momentum. Thanks so much Nolan, I had a really great time working on this project with you and would love to do more tattoos like this!
