I am totally in love with this piece of flash, which I believe I spied in this month's Tattoo Flash Magazine. By Tim McAlary.
Now of course I would change it up a bit, but I like that she's not exactly Medusa - who has many tattoos devoted to her. She's kind of an amalgamation of Medusa and a freak-show snake-woman. The wee mirror totally builds off of the Medusa myth, but the snake-woman is so totally traditional tattoo imagery and "broadville"pinup style.
I tried to source the images where I could, but, alas, such is the internet. Of course, if you have a name to put the pretty peektures, I will certainly credit.
I would also be remiss not to let everyone say hello to Geneveve, who has a special place in my heart and on my leg. She's a freaky lady in her own right.
