ya I agree. I have looked at this tattoo many times and all I can think is how many ways this could go wrong in the shop. I mean I am all for handing over a design to the artist and asking them to duplicate it but on a smaller scale. a full back tattoo of this intricacy would scare the shit out of me if I were the artist going to add this to someones skin with a permanent marker.
That tatoo... seriously, it's absolutely perfect. The more you look at it, the more it personifies the relation she has with s/m. Everything smacks you in the face, but it's so... subtle. I can't even describe it.
