    Link: Undetermined Tattoo of The Day - This one is too close to call. I-A-B, you make the decision, is this tattoo cool, bad or pretentious?

    Im guessing by the earrings that this is a girl? I`m not being sexist, its my opinion. Either way that is a pretty intricate drawing for a tattoo

    wow, it is weird in this mini Dark Age of Culture that we are in to see such a spectacular work of art end up on someones back.
    Art, literature and music have been in the doldrums for over 100 years. I hope we live to see another age like the one that produced this fine work of art (the original, though kudos to the tattoo artist).

    Yours in looking forward to a New age of Art, Music and Literature,

    What an odd painting choice for a tattoo. There`s millions of better choices--if you`re into that sort of thing.

    I love the painting itself and the style it was done in made it a wonderful piece of art that took such a long time to complete. however, as a tattoo it comes off with a ridiculous feeling that cheapens the original work.

    Technically speaking, the tattoo gun process IS pointillism.

    "i never did understand people that get a tattoo on their back.

    whats the point?"

    One reason, like me, I got tattoo`s on my back because I was young and stupid and wanted a tattoo, but was also intelligent enough to understand that even though tattoo`s are becoming more socially acceptable, there are still those close minded people who would still believe the stereotype when it comes to tattoos. And knowing my luck that person would be a potential employer.

    Same reason as below plus the back is a straight canvas so you can get a decent tattoo there its also part of the body which doesent sag or change too much with weight change throughout life.

    And agreed with opie ruins concept of orignal when done on small scale

    I`m guessing it`s temporary. It would be really easy; see here for example:

    You can buy temporary tattoo paper and put it in your printer.

    If not, excellent tattoo artist.

    eh, it`s okay... obviously does not do the actually painting justice since it`s an impressionist, pointillism painting which couldn`t possibly be replicated as a tattoo.

    pui: just because this artist didn`t do it doesn`t mean it`s not possible. it just means she didn`t request a tattoo artist that could do more than replicate vaguely. i`ve seen several tattoo artists recreate sketchiness, watercolor, pointilism. they`re out there, you just have to have the determination to find em.

    and this person did not have it, so she`s left with a mediocre tattoo where people will go "oh that`s that one painting of.. yeah... well, cool, i guess, good job on getting... a painting.. on your back..."

    It`s a good picture but too paintingish for a tatoo. Looks like it hurt too.
