+Tiger And Dragon+ by Andoledius +Tiger And Dragon+ by Andoledius
Heeyyyy

Okay so, before anyone says anything, i know the tiger pose is from a generic image found on google and here on DA.

My friends who comissioned the tattoo wanted a dragon, and as close as i could get to that specific tiger pose, so i didnt really have a choice but to....ohgodicantbelieveimgoingtosaythis.....trace is as much as i could, while adding my own little flares. yeah :/ so im not some like unoriginal stupid person or anything, thats what i was comissioned to do xD;

BUT ANYWAY. like i said above, two tattoos comissioned for two of my RL friends C: they wanted the classic tiger and dragon battling it off. Each of them took one of the designs and tattoo'd it onto themselves (on their calves)

and for those of you who are wondering, the symbol is the Ohm symbol. not quite sure what its meaning is, peace maybe?

I wonder if I could borrow this as a model for a tattoo that I'm gonna draw in the near future, mostly because this one was really liked by the one whose gonna get the tattoo, of course, all credits go to you and the picture itself will change so that no one will think I stole it..

It may have been said before - but Ohm is the sound which the earth makes as it spins through space, which humans attempt to replicate in attempt to achieve inner balance and peace by syncing in with the world.

Hello! Ive been searching for a good left fore-arm piece and though this was done for calve, but calves are already full up ((lol)), could i please have permission to use both tiger and dragon for my fore-arm if my tattooist is also up for it? I promise you would also get pictures aswell if it is a 'ok' from you and that tattooist.
Im seeing him soon for 2 tattoos ((getting a Kuroshitsuji one and YuGiOh season 4 tattoo ;) )) and if you okay it i can take him a print.

Let me know if its a yeah nor nyah! =D

Unfortunately this is a paid comission so the artwork strictly belongs to the buyer :/ Otherwise i would have loved to see the finished result as a tattoo :)

sorry :/

hurrrr. i was gonna be all over your ass about the pose but if thats what they wanted then i cant blame you xD I like the way you stylized them though, especially the dragon. His scales are flat, but his face and feet are shaded more realisticly. I like that, it works really well : D The tiger isnt as cool, cause hes shaded in all over, but that cant be helped. hes not scaley :c sucks for him. But hes still cool cause your initials are on his tail so its all good 8D

Isnt ohm something to do with energy or electricity or something? eh i was never good at physics, so i wouldnt bet the farm on it.

MASSIVE DRAGON-TIGER SHOWDOWN.

I do wonder that duo is so popular for battle.

I absolutely love the dragon design, it looks oriental with an ando touch to it.

Om or Aum is of paramount importance in Hinduism. Om is not a word but rather an intonation, which, like music, transcends the barriers of age, race, culture and even species. It is made up of three Sanskrit letters, aa, au and ma which, when combined together, make the sound Aum or Om. It is believed to be the basic sound of the world and to contain all other sounds. It is a mantra or prayer in itself. If repeated with the correct intonation, it can resonate throughout the body so that the sound penetrates to the centre of one's being, the atman or soul.

There is harmony, peace and bliss in this simple but deeply philosophical sound. By vibrating the sacred syllable Om, the supreme combination of letters, if one thinks of the Ultimate Personality of Godhead and quits his body, he will certainly reach the highest state of "stateless" eternity, states the Bhagavad Gita - holy book for Hindus...


Just FYI....
