In The Land Of The Blind, The One Eyed Man Is King

Last February I drew this tattoo design for a friend & he got it done about a month or so later.

Since then he's been hassling me to draw him up something else. But never gave me any ideas so I didn't draw anything up. Couple of days ago he says: "hey, draw me up a tattoo." As per usual I ask him what and expect no ideas. "I like that last thing you drew on your blog." And since I already wanted to redraw it I got onto it.

Drew this up. Got the eyeball & bones from the last picture. The hourglass is 100 times better, time & effort were taken on this one. The runes spell out "In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king". Added in some weird markings to fill in the circle.

Edit: spun the image through about 30degrees. 
Rotate the eye back to the right way up. 
Made the hourglass bigger.
How they fit together.

  1. I really like this tattoo because it is almost exactly what I want for myself. For me its personal because a long time ago I was blinded in my left eye. "In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king." I heard it somewhere before and it made me feel not so bad about what had happened so it makes it really neat. Id like to if I could find a way to make this design in someway different. But more of something for my sleeve if anyone has any kind of neat ideas, don't know if anyone will respond to this... but kudos man its really good.
