a year or two ago I had a section on my website of tattoos that people had sent photos of. All were done using images from the Orchid Photo Page as reference. One of the best examples of tattoo art is pictured here. Fortunately she lived in South Florida and even more fortunately, was willing to participate in a recreation of Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres' famous Odalisque. Ingres was one of my early heroes from art school days so it was especially rewarding to create the photo...with a modern twist! The photo was taken in 2007.
Looking at Ingres' painting today, it has the look of Audubon's birds: something about the anatomy seems askew.
