Been doing a lot of ‘deep’ thinking lately. Hopefully will be able to do some recreational drawing soon to ooze it all out.

Pencil drawing ref for a ‘tattoo’ design.

    I absolutely love this design. I love the steampunk look and anything that has to do with watch movements….I have always been fascinated by the way in which the gears of a watch work…so perfect!
    My motto in life is; It’s not if, but when….it’s only a matter of time!
    I have been searching for a possible tattoo design that is close to my heart and this hit home!!!!
    Love it!

  8. Hazel Thomas says:

    This is seriously amazing. I would love to have this for a tattoo. Would you be okay with me using the basic design? I’d ask my artist to change it a little so it wouldn’t be exactly the same… So, so in love.

  9. Tatterhood says:

    Sure – and thanks for asking! I’d love to see what the final tattoo ends up looking like!

    I truly love this picture.
    Would it be okay for me to use it on a customized bag I am making?
    I’m a fiber artist and would love to use it on a gothic/ steampunk messenger.
    I will send you a pic when it is done.
    Let me know asap please as I am working on it as we speak.

    Thanks soooo much,

    Wow, that sounds so cool! You have my permission – so long as you send me a pic! (And you tell me how you’re applying the image! Are you screenprinting? Weaving? Painting it on the fabric? Embroidering?)

    This is absolutely stunning. Hope you don’t mind, but I used this to base a part of my own drawing, representing the song Love is Blindness, off of. This is far more stunning than one could ever be though!

    Hi Kris, this is a stunning image. I’m fettling up a badge/patch for a new steampunk “tribe” – The Suffolk Steampunk Reality Engine. Would you be open to allowing the use of this image as the basis for the badge? If you charge a licence fee, please let me know – we’d be using the image in a small circle of friends, and not for commercial purposes, and obviously we’d be happy to tell everyone who’s the talent was.

    Kind regards

    That’s fine – thank you for asking! I’d love to see the finished patches when they’re done.
