What's your vision?
I am interested in seeing some creative designs for tattoo art. The winning image will have to be something that can be produced both as a tattoo AND as printed art suitable for framing. I want to see art featuring the Naga (the king of serpents featured in both Hindu and Buddhist mythologies) raised in a protective posture as is seen often in imagery showing the Naga protecting the Buddha from the rain. Rather than protecting the Buddha, I wish instead to see the Naga in a protective stance over a piglet, curled and asleep, lying on an ornate pillow set atop a short stack of books. (In much Hindu art, the Buddha is shown sitting atop the coils of the Naga, and I wish to echo this) The coils of the Naga could continue to unfold below the resting piglet (e.g., to extend down the arm were a tattoo placed on a shoulder) I am less partial to highly stylized Hindu representations of the Naga and prefer the single-headed cobra-like version to the multi-headed. I do not want anything "cartoonish" but prefer something more in the way of the Chinese / Japanese / Thai "asian art" style.
I wish for the Naga image to evoke an intensity that speaks of both wisdom and power. I wish for the piglet image to provide the contrary perspective, of innocence and vulnerability. I don't want to offer any images of the Naga as I'm looking for creative vision from submitting artists and don't want to steer direction just yet. Regarding the piglet, the attached images are a pretty close representation of my ideal. Lastly, I'm very open to creative re-interpretation to ALL of the guidance offered above, so go wild...!
