Samoan shoulder tattoo design tattooed


Recently I designed a few new shoulder tattoos in Samoan style with some Maori koru shapes:


The designs are inspired on the Samoan tatoos like the Sonny Bill Williams shoulder tatoo. The drawings have really detailed patterns and repetitive shapes, mostly in a symmetrical design. 
These designs are covering the shoulder part and part of the upper arm, to just above the elbow.

Yesterday I received a photo from a tattoo artist (Nate Gamble, Australia) who had done the right design shown above on one of his clients. He was really pleased with the result and just bought a new design, this time the second tattoo above.

Here's the photo of the tattooed design:

I have seen a lot of my tattoos done by different tattoo artists, but this one is a really nice and clean piece I must say.

Any questions? Just let me know!

Kind regards, Mark Storm

5 Funny Art Installations

Art installations are physical, sculptural art works that are displayed in public areas. These works of art often have a social or political message, although sometimes, they are simply created to amuse.

"Inversion" aka "Tunnel House"
Houston artists Dan Havel and Dean Ruck transformed a courtyard between two houses into a vortex-like tunnel. The art installation is made using wooden boards; in keeping with the architecture of the area. The finished result is the illusion that some form of black hole has sucked a house into itself, leaving a portal into worlds unknown.

Paul McCarthy's "Complex Shit" art installation is made up of enormous inflatable plastic feces. The art work, which was displayed in the garden of a Swiss museum, blew away in a strong wind, bringing down a power line and damaging a glass greenhouse before coming to earth on the grounds of a children's home.

Octo-pied Building has Tentacular Cancer
Artists FilthyLuker and Pedro Estrellas created this hilarious art installation that displays inflatable octopus tentacles waving from the windows of a French building. FilthyLuker comments, "Octo-pied building: a house with tentacular cancer."
