Skull and Serpent by Aerin-Kayne Skull and Serpent by Aerin-Kayne
:mwahaha: :mwahaha: :mwahaha:

just one quick thing, because I think some people are getting the wrong idea -
I drew this before the 4th Harry Potter movie came out, so I wasn't trying to copy the dark mark - not that skull and snake designs haven't been done to death anyway...


In general, for anything submitted to the tattoo section (Tattoo section only please):
Its fine if anyone actually wants to get a tattoo of one of the designs. The designs may also be modified (for example, colored, or reproduced only in part) to suite individual preferences. I might have small prints of the images available buying one is not required but would be greatly appreciated. Images are for tattoos only. Do not sell, re-sell images etc etc Thanks :)

I have a question, I'm experimenting with custom tattoos on Poser models in 3D rendering and was wondering if I could use this in a future render? I'd give you full credit for the design and link you the work so that you can see that I'm keeping it true to the form.

Would be interesting to see how it looks.  I don't have an issue with it.  Thank you for asking.

I may eventually redo it as a thigh tattoo, but it works nicely on her arm. Thanks for letting me use it.

Yea this is great. The shadowing on the snake compare to the skull is good. i wouldnt think of that, i would probleby make the skull as dark as the snake.

Oh man I'm searching for another tattoo since a year now and when I came accross this drawing, I was like ""
In the description you say you're ok to let people have it as a tattoo, I was wondering if it was still the case (I'm still searching anyway, but who knows)
Awesome drawing, even for a common theme, this one is more stunning than the others for my taste =D

Very nice piece. People have been drawing skulls with snakes long before Hairy Putter made it popular, I wouldn't worry.
