This is a tattoo design for
who liked the 'Heraldic' style of this piece I did a week or so ago:
They specifically requested Giratina's origin forme, which is great, because I'd have no idea how to stylise it's altered form (six legs? oy vey). This was a fun design to do. Most snakes in Heraldic design are S shapes, but it didn't look nearly as appealing as a 'knot design'. I decided not to go too crazy with the loops since I'm not very good at uniform and complex shapes (like norse runes). I made Giratina's helm into a literal crown topped with pearls. His side claw plates are embedded with diamonds and his wings are stylised into floral ribbons.
The markings are fleur-de-lice since I wanted a pattern surrounding Giratina's little stumps and it seemed to suit perfectly.
