Tribal Phoenix by onlyono Tribal Phoenix by onlyono
i was asked by a friend to draw a tattoo for myself. i probably won't ever get it done, so i just made it up. but def if i did, it would have to be a phoenix. this phoenix's tail is totally ghetto, i know. i have another better one i was drawing, mabe i'll finish it and post it too. i don't know if i would even want it to be tribal, so yeah, i was just trying to get him to shut up. :D

I really like this and have actually been looking for a tribal phoenix like this one for a Wallpaper I'm working on that might double as a tattoo concept.

Would you mind if I used it for the wallpaper for now? I'll give you full credit for it.

Either way, this is an awesome phoenix.

thank you thank you. as mentioned above (several times by now, lol) please feel free to use as a tattoo design; i would like a pic of the completed tattoo sent to my e-mail. other than that, the tattoo artist is welcome to take any minor artistic liberties with the original piece to make it fit your body, etc. thanks again! :)

It is beautiful. When I get a tattoo, could I use this design? I was trying to figure out what I should get.

best tribal phoneix I've seen yet! Would you mind if I used it for a tat (perf. the color one)? Still looking around- but this is the best yet.

I've been looking all over dA for a well made tribal Phoe Tattoo. This is one of the best I've seen.

May I have your permission to get it done? I've been wanting a Phoenix tattoo for a while now and I've fallen in love with this one.

actually i'm very flattered and i'm very glad you asked! all i ask is that you give me credit by not altering the image when you get it done (or only enough so that it will fit your body well) and that you send me a picture of it when it's done so i can show it off. :)
