Rockin’ Bird Tattoos

Two Birds on Chest tattoo by Rafel Delalande

This chest tattoo (at top) is a beautiful design that hints a bit of Rorschach test cards. The mirrored effect looks really cool, and artist Rafel Delalande essentially uses black ink with a combination of pointillism and line art.
