Cool. Like a tatoo collage....

Good technique but not too original.

Wow! this guy makes me mad. drawing with a torch a little naked girl who's been napalmed, exploding flowers! Thats some happy dark s**t.

Thought Provoking at it's best....United We Stand,......Great Depictor!

very talented.... as far as the subject matter goes, I grieve for the lost potential of all that beauty wasted...first the tatooed boy; because art like this on a body doesn't get more beautiful like on a canvas, but it dulls and wrinkles and fades and it's meaning gets lost with age...second,The Rose Skull: all that amazing potential creativity in a lifetime that can either be used or wasted away.....and most people never even realize what their possiblilities were....
Consider the lotus blossum; see how it shimmers in the light;beckoning, beckoning in the night...as each precious petal slowly unfolds, exciting new details are told; of it's beauty it's intrincities, it's design that can only be appreciated with time....Oh Peace, have patience, my precious child; hold back temptation, wherein beguild; to pluck quick the blossum at too young a stage, and lose the beauty of the age! For, precious gifts take but a little while,and last forever....
