This is a custom piece by Zach Stuka from Deluxe Tattoo in Chicago. It’s intended to be a visual portrayal of my favorite quote from one of my favorite books, The Picture of Dorian Gray.
”I want to make Romeo jealous, I want the dead lovers of the world to hear our laughter, and grow sad. I want a breath of our passion to stir their dust into consciousness, to wake their ashes into pain.”
Each element is a nod to some of the greatest love stories.
