Some might see only darkness in this artwork and ask how can you perceive beauty in such a morbid vision? But, as Albert Camus stated “There is no sun without shadow, and it is essential to know the night.”
I admit that I am quite enthralled with this tattoo. I have memorized every nuance, yet still see something new every day. Tell me, dear readers, does it intrigue you, too?
Seraph’s full back tattoo has become a true artistic ritual. Inspired by the magnificent European ossuaries and crypts, it has become a tribute to Odin the All Father, and the pantheon of Nordic Gods. The tattoo was created at the hands of expert tattoo artist John Fitzgerald of Slave to the Needle in Seattle and has taken nearly a year to complete.
