    The original image comes from the Codex Borgia of the Mexica people of Southern Mexico. Quetzacoatl their main god is on the right, Mictlantecuhtli a god of death on the left. I got it because I like the duality of the two characters (without resorting to a yin yang) and I've always loved ancient artwork, particularly from latin america. I actually got the tattoo in october, just never got around to getting pictures of it.

    Looks awesome. Couldn't hurt to have your artist put in a few chainsaws though.

    i think you should get it colored like the original, or at least similar. especially since you've got some parts filled with grey, it looks like it's not finished right now.

    yeah, I'm half though pretty much white. And the artist did the outline under the impression that it'd be filled in later.

    i like it. i'd color it in, but that's just me - i'm with Barrio on thinking it looks a little bit unfinished.

    thats the exact way i felt when i saw it. even if it was supposed to be colored in later, he should have done a better job with straighter lines
