Phoenix - '08 by kissy-face Phoenix - '08 by kissy-face
Not certain this would be a conceivable tattoo design, BUT OH WELL. Doodled with ballpoint pens while studying for finals, later colored with sharpies and a watercolor marker. 

NOTE: There have been a lot of inquiries recently from DA members to use this as a tattoo of their own. I'm flattered, and by all means go crazy - just please please please please please take photos to send to me.

Wow, one of the best Phoenix designs I've ever seen. Perfect balance of ferocity and graceful beauty, and the colors are perfect too. You get that flame look, but no fire whatsoever. Not crazy about seeing Phoenix's made out of just fire. Feels like a half ass approach to it.

I love this phoenix. I know that another person has used this for a tattoo but I was wondering if I could use it as a tattoo also? As soon as it is done I will post a picture.
