American artist Tony Mancia sometimes spends 10 hours custom designing a tattoo for a client. It takes some thought to come up with interesting compositions such as fusing late Gothic and Renaissance cathedrals with portraits of women.
Elements of fantasy and geometry are incorporated in the blackwork tattoos of Fredão Oliveira. Strikingly-detailed portraits grace his client’s bodies, commanding attention with a realistic style that’s framed by decorative shapes and bold lines. Together, they evoke the feel of a technical ink drawing that you’d see on the pages of an enthralling comic book... https://www.instagram.com/fredao_oliveira/
The tattoo artist has given these wings a shadow, to create the illusion that the wings are above the skin. The color blue is a symbol of healing, forgiveness, vision and truth. Combined with the symbolism of wings, this tattoo could mean that this person finds freedom in truth or aims for good health. Combining two symbols can often create a variety of different meanings for a tattoo.
