Iris + Hermes con't Picture

This tattoo was applied 10-20-2007.

By John Lewis at All Souls Tattoo in San Pedro, California

I wanted a tattoo that represented the messengers of Greek mythology. I find it funny because I prefer Norse to Greek (mythology-wise) but it was what I wanted.

[Hermes has winged sandals, hence the wings.
And [Iris] is represented by the rainbow]

I thought I was getting a gradient but John's interpretation was SO MUCH BETTER than planned.

This guy was very nice and outgoing. The tattoo took about 4 hours to complete. I did not cry or scream, but I did "moo" XD Beautiful wings!
