Been thinking of getting a new tattoo soon, commemorate graduating from grad school, and well its been awhile since I recieved my last one (also my only tat). Came accross some images recently that I have found particularliy beautiful and they got me thinking.
This first image is a work by Leonard Baskin, I believe its part of his prophets series, I was recently informed that he lived in Amherst MA. Not sure if I would get all of these guys, or just one.
This image is by Ben Shahn, not his most well known print or drawing but I really like the lion like line drawing that is in the background. I think it would make a great tat, just lines no shading. Here is another possible lion by Shahn, I would remove all the background layers and just get to line drawing of the lion.
And here is just one more painting by my new favorite Jewish surrealist Samuel Bak. i don’t think I could get this tattooed, but if I wanted a full color and like 50 hour tattoo I would consider one of his works.
