The Traveler by K9battlecry The Traveler by K9battlecry
When :iconstressedjenny: created this line art and basically said 'i challenge you' to tattoo this woman i couldn't resist! But when i think "old school" tattoos i think really old, like ancient old. LOL So when designing her tattoos i just did every ancient design i could think of (and pulled off a few things i had in my room, one being a book of north-western native American legends) but thats when i realized, how would one woman have the tattoos of so many cultures? Then the thought of a global traveler in accent times (thanks to an "Ancient Aliens" theory). So in the end this woman traveled around the world, gaining tattoos from cultures like the Mayans, North-western Native Americans, Hopi, Polynesian, and some simple designs that could have been from a number of cultures.
If you have a question about which tattoos are from which cultures just ask. :)

I hope you enjoy! :dance:

That's a really cool idea to imagine her as a world traveler, collecting tattoos from around the world! What's the Ancient Aliens theory?

Thanks! ^^
And the theory is that in ancient times there was/were aliens on earth (or just their technology) and that they along with their human companions could travel around the world when supposedly no one could.
There is a mountain (sorry i don't remember what it is called ><) that has what looks like the images of animals and races from around the world that were carved before modern travel, so they theorize that they were carved by world travelers who wanted to leave evidence of their travels. :) There is also a map that maps the land of Antarctica and the rivers of south America and was made before modern science had even seen the land below the ice and named the rivers in south America. so they theorize someone had to have either traveled there when there was no ice or been in space looking down.[link]
These are of corse just theories but they are fun to think about and wonder if out ancestors were fare more advanced than our history books tell us. ;)

Thank you! :la: I really tired to stay away from the more modern tribal and really look at older designs that you can still acomplish with the old technology for tattooing they had. :)
You are so welcome, it was so much fun!! :D
