This is my 4th tattoo so far. I guess it’s kind of cheesy but it does not matter what mood I’m in, how sick I am, how many times I read the comics or watch the movie; Scott Pilgrim always makes me happy and never gets old. It probably helps that Bryan Lee O’Malley is one of my favorite comic writers. I’ve wanted this tattoo for a very long time and now the magic of this comic is with me everywhere! Tattooed by Laura Dennis, Melbourne Australia!
This tattoo came from an idea to create an image to bring together science and nature. The outline is the Mandelbrot Set, discovered by Benoit Mandelbrot in the late 70s, and often considered to be one of the first fractal images ever produced. Inside the Set is the Tree of Life as interpreted by the tattoo artist, David Hale of LoveHawk Studios in Athens, Ga. David really brought this idea to life and created an amazing image that captures what I envisioned more clearly than I thought possible. Hope you all enjoy it too!
One day I went to the Natural History Museum in DC and on display was a narwhal skull with two tusks. I loved it so much I decided to get a tattoo! Paired with a couple of poppy flowers. I love it so much. This creature is a rare breed, just like me :). Photo, Drawing, and tattoo all done by Matthew Amey at Independent Tattoo.
