A memento mori with a twist: Manga style grimm reaper for thigh (6 by 6 inches aprox.)
Like in classical vanitas, the memento mori always portraits the death, a skull and a clock (symbolizing time). For my left thigh I want a 180° turn of the traditional memento mori. Instead of a classic Grimm Reaper and an hourglass I’d like the death represented by a manga girl (in the style of Masamure Shirow’s Motoko Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell manga or a more relaxed one like Ritsuko Inoue from Y? Yagami’s Those Who Hunt Elves). The death is commonly presented with a scythe but, in this tat I want to replace the scythe with any other weapon (could be a rifle, a gun, a sword, or whatever weapon you find coherent with the girl). For the hourglass, I’m thinking something more like a digital watch display that could be placed in a back layer. The “memento mori” banner usually is placed somewhere in the design. For this banner I’d love something written with bullet holes in a wall; like the FAKK 2 sign in the movie Heavy Metal 2000. Last but not least, the skull should be a cat’s skull… this could be a little tricky but, you can cover the girl’s face with a cat’s skull mask, like in the works of Chiara Bautista or like Noodle in the video of the song On Melancholy Hill by Gorillaz.
I’d love a design in full color, this will be my one and only color tattoo in a cartoon or manga style. I know is a challenge but, I have seen some pretty cool art on this website and I humbly ask for your amazing talent and help :D
