Phoenix tattoo design by Goliwog Phoenix tattoo design by Goliwog
Just to let you all know that I CAN actually wield a mean pencil, I'm including this picture. The line art was hand drawn, scanned and put in PS for coloring.

I get requests from people to use this and since it was never a commercial thing, if it means something to you, if it just sparks the gotta have it thing, sure... I lost the original PS layered version that would have allowed me of course to post a version w/o the heart... sorry...

love this :heart: i'm definitely considering getting it done, minus the heart at the back and maybe a few changes or additions to personalize it a bit. probably won't be anytime soon though i've got the cliche parents issue lol, but just thought you should know your design's awesome!

I've looked at A LOT of phoenix designs in my search for another tattoo. I nearly died of AIDS in 2006, and since then I've experienced amazing miracles. I'm healthier and happier than I've ever been in my life. Along this path I have discovered a deeper faith, a much greater appreciation for everything and everyone in my life and a more fulfilling generosity of spirit.

I really love your interpretation, and its my first choice among all the designs I've seen. I envision it between my shoulder blades with a latin phrase above it. "NON SUM QUALIS ERAM" can be translated as "I am not such that I was" or "I am not the person I used to be".

To any and all who would like to get this inked, feel free! I no longer have the original hi-res copy, so you're stuck with what's here.

This is simply beautiful.

My fiancé is always represented by a phoenix, so this tattoo design is very meaningful to me.
And by the way, you do wield a mean pencil. :)
