Saint Gabriel Tattoo

by Glenna Garcia on January 2, 2011

Here is Saint Gabriel the Archangel with a sword in hand, ready to strike a mighty blow. The folds of his clothing are shaped well – from the torso and arms, down to his legs. His wings are layered wonderfully, especially since this is not a head on angle but instead a view from his right. The tattoo fits well along this girls midsection on the right side, because it’s the right size and makes good use of the curve of her body to add shape and movement to the wing as well. I like the coloring on this tattoo…as it is almost a sepia tone.  It characterizes well the moment captured in the picture. The clouds around him look very realistic and are outlined nice. A well done and memorable tattoo.
