Russian Eagle by Majnouna Russian Eagle by Majnouna
This subject deserved a much better photo with much better lighting... Still, for a spur-of-the-moment-quick-before-that-ray-of-sunlight-vanishes capture, it has something I really like.
Dedicated to my mate and muse Anton, who fronts the death.blues band Bleak, which if you're lucky enough to live in London you should really check out :)
(PS: The tattoo is NOT my work!)

His comment on seeing the picture was "That's very Russian." I dare say it is ;)

Wow that's a fantastic tattoo design, and I'm loving the rings on his hand as well; kinda goes hand-in-hand with the tattoo! x)

Such awesomely metal rings he has! They're an interesting contrast to his hands--they look really soft in comparison. The tattoo is cool, too. I like the shading on the feathers.

That's true, he has very fine hands and I'm fascinated by the contrast :) Not to mention the tattoo was horribly painful to get, I hear!

The tattoo looks like the Albanian crest, very nice photo, very natural.

Yeah, a number of countries use the two-headed eagle, it's an impressive bird in the Balkan-Caucasus part of the world :) (not two-headed though :XD:)
