12  Re: Tattoo Psychobilly Maori coolness hand embroidered... in Needlework: Completed Projects by BeatnikChick on: October 01, 2007 03:20:34 PM
So totally awesome.

Your stitches look super neat! It will be the best couch pillow ever, for serious.

Do you have a link to the original design, just to see what it looked like before the awesome transformation into fabric?

I'd love to give you the link, however, it's an inkednation.com address and in order to see it, I believe you have to have a membership and it is also available on MySpace, again I think you may have to have a membership to actually view this guy, Ash's work.  If I get permition from Ash to post the photo I will but if you have a MySpace or an Inkednation account, I'd be more than happy to show you the real tattoo...

You know, I think it's a sugar skull and not Maori. Two different cultures. Sugar skulls are traditionally Mexican and used during Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead).

Yes, One would think that this was a Dia de los Muertos sugar skull, however, it isn't.  If you look closely, you will see that the tongue is extended, and the design was from a person in Australia with a Maori connection, also please note the designs on the chin of the figure, these are typical Maori... I also want to note here that I have a Double B.A. in Anthropology (Focus in Cultural Anthropology) and Art History, and have a minor in Southeast Asian Studies, I've had to do plenty of work on islands in the Pacific, such as Palau and Yap as well as Papau New Guinea and New Zealand, I thank you for your opinion, however, for the artist's sake, and my educational background, I'm sticking with Maori, here's a real facial tattoo image of a Maori tribesman... for a visual...


And here is a Maori with tongue extended for another visual:


Now as for detail this is amazing!  BeatnikChick this is above and beyond my patience level by a long stretch.  Wow!  I hope I get to see your work in person someday Wink
 
You're too kind, thank you, however, your upright kicks it killer!

13  Tattoo Psychobilly Maori coolness hand embroidered... in Needlework: Completed Projects by BeatnikChick on: September 30, 2007 08:36:16 PM
I located this as a tattoo on a website and asked the artist if I could render it to hand embroidery, he said yes, and I'm not done with it just yet, because I want to make this into a pillow cover for one on my couch... LOVE the design...
