Peacock by palehecate Peacock by palehecate
I really liked how this one worked out, I wanted to do it in Blue and silver but the green was so rich I just had to go with that instead! Damn scanner does it no justice.

I saw this image and noticed that someone has used it as a tattoo already. My friend and co worker was looking to get a peacock tattoo so I instantly went to DA. She adores this image and wanted to know if you'd, yet again, allow someone to use this image for a tattoo.

PS. it's a beautiful drawing.

Sorry it takes ages for me to come back to my messages, she sure can, if she hasn't alreay, I'm sure the artist can put an original twist on it for her, as someone else has used the design previously:)

I just want to say that ever since I had this design tattooed on me - people who don't even like tattoos have been falling over themselves to say how much they love it.
Thank you thank you thank you for being SO talented!

Wow really!? That's great, thanks for the feedback, I just have to bolster up the courage now and get my own one done!

really, it's stunning.
I might use it for a tattoo; but with different colorrss,
you think that'd be okay? :thumb5940914:

am I the first person to get this design tattooed onto me???? hmmm

girl - thank you so much for creating something so gorgeous that I'm going to get another one done! ha ha! I'm getting the design repeated and reversed on my right shoulder too!

2 1/2 hours under the needle later and here's the result:


it was still quite gunky here and covered in vaseline. I'll take some better photos when it's calmed down a bit.

Hope you approve? I can't thank you enough :)

i love this absolutely....i've been wanting to get a peacock tattoo for some time now, and i've been doing a lot of browsing to get inspiration for my design, and when i saw this i loved the shape of the design so much, i had to make my own version based on your original can find it here: [link]

with your permission, as the original design is yours, i'd like to get this tattooed, please let me know
elegaer Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2004
Oh my - thats stunning!!! And I'm glad I've finally found someone else who likes drawing peacocks!!!

Your "tribal" (if that's even the right adjective) designs are so fluid and beautiful. I really wish I could see the original version of this piece before the scanner got a hold of it. Your ability to use these designs and shape them into animals such as swans and geese (I think) is pure, original, creativity. Thanks for creating such masterpieces. :)

... sound of jaw dropping ...

this is absolutely beautiful. So simple, and yet so beautifully rich and detailed.... Great choice on going with the green- It makes the blue stand out even more. I love it...
palehecate Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2004
Not sure what you mean? You want to take the design and turn it into a different tattoo?
ShanDurRah Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2004
