omg.

I'm so getting this. I can *feel* it *on* my back.

Also, my original character for an online Roleplaying group is getting this on her back. The heraldry of her house is a swan over two crossed arrows, and this is perfect for her. She's left home, so it has the ties to her home but without the direct attachment. [link]

Long story short, a made up character AND I are both getting this tattoo. XD

Just wanted to say I absolutely love your work. So talented! I just got my first tattoo done, I have an identical twin sister and we both have the same the above design but doubled and facing each other to represent each other. I hope you dont mind.... [link]

This is so unique!
I've been looking for a swan tattoo for so long and almost all of them are tacky or cliche... this is neither. :)

Hello,
A few years ago I felt in love with this picture. I wanted to have this tattoo. Would it embarrass you?

I'm considering a tattoo like this one. But than turned around. So you also get the letter S. As my mom used to write my name with a swan in front, and than 'anne' after it :) I love it a lot!

Hi, I've kinda edited this and added to it to make my own design, just asking permission to upload it to my DA, credit, of course, will be given.
If however you're uncomfortable with it, I'll of course just delete it from my photobucket account and no more will be said (:

Here it is if you wish to view: [link]

Beautiful! If I wasn't already struggling to afford my Sonata Arctica ink, this would be going on my skin already! :D

I can definitely see something Tolkein-esque about this. It's sort of reminiscent of celtic designs, which remind me very much of a lot of both the elf and Rohan culture in Middle Earth, lots of curving lines, graceful images that sort of thing.

Nice work! :D

Beautiful blackwork... I am such a sucker for that. Your birds are all so free, and freely drawn... it certainly captures the essence of the creature quite well. The ALMOST Celtic knotwork in where the tail is dividing is absolutely beautiful. The details in each wing/feather division is also fabulously done, and keeps the piece interesting.... great job! :clap:

art noveau and stain glass elements certainly, the swan's head well kinda gone but the flow of the piece is great the duel barb on the tail feather closest to the wing is nice.
