Horse Tattoo by KDesJardins Horse Tattoo by KDesJardins
So this is my future tattoo! I designed and did it all in Ai. Im not sure where to put it yet. It will not be huge. but i still need permission from my mom, or wait another 6ish months.

Story behind it, i love horses. however i also love greek mythology. so i combined them to make Pegasus :)

Anyways, if you would like me to make you a tattoo or you have an idea you want made, let me know and we can arrange something.

Comments and critique welcome.

**EDIT**
BIG edit, i completely revamped the wings to match the overall style of the horse

PS
PLEASE do not steal. this is MY tattoo, its meaningful to me, so please do not take it for yours.

Hey there :)
Stunning design, it would look smashing as a tat! Unfortunately I didn't come across it by DA, but through this website: waktattoos.com/category/1/hors… I thought you might want to know they stole your art. Cheers!

I love this style of art, with the lines that sort of hint at the picture, rather than the picture actually being there -- what is this type called?

I like this tattoo very very much but,
I saw this tattoo on the henna shop in Tunesie five years ago, exact the same..
I know this because my friend has exactly the same tattoo on her back, because she liked the picture so much when i sended it to her 5years ago..

So it's very strange because you say that you designed it yourself, I don't want to be mean or anything it's just the truth.

Greetings

I have the WIPs and edits all, and sketches of my design. So yes, I did design and create it myself. However, horses and pegasus are popular. I dont doubt someone has had the same vision as me and created something very similar to what I have.
So please, take your doubts and accusations elsewhere, where people have ACTUALLY stolen art.
I made this almost 5 years ago now, so maybe its the case that they actually took my work. Perhaps you should think through statements a little bit more before you make them into accusations, as you have offended me.

Hi! I have to say, this is Incredible!! I was wondering if it would be OK for me to use this to practice drawing horse forms? I've been trying to learn to free-hand horses and this is a great, simple but perfect form. I wouldn't ever give it out or for anything public, just for personal use and practicing?
Thanks so much!!!

I was wondering if you could design me a horse tattoo. I resently lost my horse over the past summer and I haven't found one that really suits what I'm looking for. I like the whole pegasus thing with wings. Kind of like an angel horse is what I'm looking for. Thanks

Hey there,

Thank you for the interest, but I am currently a working student and don't have time to create anything right now. I have also changed careers (from Graphic Design to a trade). If you want to take this into an artist as inspiration that would be fine, just no direct copies :)

Thanks again!

Karly

Hi could you design me a horse tattoo? preferably a pegasus one. I love horses they're my life but I also love the idea of the power a horse that could fly must have.
Thankyou

Beautiful design. May I use the horse part for a logo design for my own personal use?

Thank you very much for the fav and interest! However, I can't give you permission to use it due to the fact that someone already used it as a tattoo and I believe he would want it to remain unique. I hope you understand :) But sincere thanks for your interest in it!! :hug:

would you consider making something like that, fluent and elusive but with aquatic referance.
A mermaid or just water...?
I am looking for a totoo [link]
I liked this one.
I hope you did it on you

Beautiful!! (but does the head or neck look a bit small/short?... However, I know you have a better grasp of horse anatomy, then I. My understanding comes from reading children's books to hmmmrg Dusty.).

I hope you never stop making art Karly.

Thank you :) Means a lot that you critique and enjoy my work :)

Due to the fact that the horse is in gallop and in a turn, the neck is streched forward, so it seems shorter when looking at it head on. which would be why it seems a little out of proportion ;)
