Tattoo Story – Michelle: Peacock Feather

Peacock Feather Tattoo

Over the last year or so I have been thinking of getting a back piece that would be unique, yet beautiful in its own way. I started looking more and more and came across the amazing color and captivation of the peacock.

I started looking online and in books but never quite saw the quality or likeness that I thought I would want. When it came down to it, I purchased an actual peocock feather and took it to Tattoo Artist Chris Brusby from Studio M Tattoo. From the feather he drew what I believe to be a very real and natural image of the feather. I didn’t want anything that was cartoony or abstract. So his idea and drawing was perfect.

The piece is mainly a ton of outlining and lines that make up the upper part and stem of the feather. Painful, but the outcome exceeded my expectations. I knew that when I asked Chris what colors he used and he said “ask me what colors I didn’t use!” that I was going to be amazed! His wife even mentioned that you can really tell when he gets into a tattoo, the end result reflects his interest in the piece.

I am completely happy with my tattoo and the beauty that it shows. Although it may not represent a person or a individual meaning, it reflects me in its own way.

    This is killer and incredibly beautiful. I hope you don’t mind that I printed it to use as an example of the type of peacock feathers I want for my arm. My artist does custom work, but this piece really seemed so lifelike and gorgeous. I’m getting two wrapped around my arm along with a sliced open pomegranate with seeds falling from it.

    Thanks for sharing the story of your tattoo.
