I’m no stranger when it comes to tattoos but this raptor dinosaur tattoo takes the cake. I’ve spent a while researching this piece to try and find out just whose it is and who is responsible for inking it, alas, I have had no luck so far. If you have any idea drop me a line because I would love to know (as well as give credit where it’s due.) Now I’m not a fan of raptors…okay, that’s a pretty big understatement, raptors give me a tingly feeling that I would compare to being dangled over a hungry lion’s cage at feeding time, but this raptor dinosaur tattoo is mind blowing. The composition itself is incredible but when you look at the depth of the piece combined with the shadows and highlights – wow.
Despite my love for dinosaurs I can’t say that I’ve ever actually thought of adding a dinosaur tattoo (let alone a raptor dinosaur tattoo) to my collection. If I did I’d definitely have to track this tattoo artist down…but even then, raptors are off the table. With my love for the parasaurolophus I’m pretty certain that would be the direction I’d choose. Then again, placing a dinosaur tattoo alongside my angel back piece would bring to mind the Raptor Jesus images that always make me laugh even though they’re sacrilegious. Have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about? See for yourself here but be warned, if you can’t take a joke it might induce you to write angry emails to me…and that would make me sad.
Back to the topic of this dinosaur tattoo though, if you haven’t checked out Pinterest in a while keep an eye on the DinoPit Pinterest board. If you’re inspired to get inked and are looking for a dinosaur tattoo idea take a look at the dinosaur tattoo pin board.
