Protective Angel

by Glenna Garcia on June 4, 2011

With this tattoo, you would really have a protecting angel ‘on your side’, right?  I know, I know, that was a bad joke!  But this is a very good angel tattoo!  It has some very nice detailing in the draping of the robe, the feathers of the wings and in the clouds.  The clouds look nice and billowy…and I love the effect created by the wing closest to us.  See how large the wing feathers get at the ends?  It has almost a ‘fish-eye’ perspective to it.  It creates a kind of modern feel to an otherwise classic iconic image.  While the angel does not appear that fierce, the raised sword and his downward gaze lets us know something is going on.
