Lotus Triplets by surf-4-life Lotus Triplets by surf-4-life
I LOVE THIS BEAST! AH! I am very pleased with the results, took a while to make sure the shading was right, and trying not to fudge it in the process! But I think it turned out pretty spiffy.

Started it yesterday, finished inking it this afternoon...so probably 3-4 hours...

Done in ballpoint pen.

Hopefully you all can see the three heads in it, thus the Lotus Triplets title...couldn't think of anything else to call it.... any suggestions?

So yeaa....what do ya think?? :D
[be nice] ;)

Hi, this design is absolutely fantastic!!
I saw the faces straight away. Not many people I have shown could see them.
I have spent alot of time trying to find ideas for my next tattoo, until I saw this. I made a few slight changes to it so it can be done.
I am also getting the OM symbol which among the many meanings is the 3 states of consciousness - with the 3 faces, this works in well.
I will post a pic of the tatt when it is done.

That is so awesome! I noticed the faces at the second glance of it and thats what I like most of it. If I had the money, I would be honored to wear that on my body - I like it that much. You are a VERY talkented person.

Oh and I thought that tattoo you did for your uncle was really cool too. It feels awesome to have people wear your drawings doesnt it? I drew a tattoo for my friend that she got on her foot. Its a wonderful feeling to have. :)
