I had a lot of fun designing this realistic and watercolor style wolf design half sleeve tattoo.
My client very much wanted an original design and loved both my photo realism tattoos, as well as my watercolor style. It was a challenge to make this tattoo be a collaborative of my two styles, while also keeping the design masculine and bold.
One of the most common interpretations of a wolf tattoo is that it symbolizes strength and power. Wolves have this special ability that allows them to survive even the toughest conditions. This characteristic of wolves has become the basis for calling them as powerful creatures. A wolf tattoo may also symbolize family.
