Inspiration

Fear not, I wasn’t planning to litter this post with a heap of shoddy ‘motivational’ posters, partly because the demotivational ones are so much more stimulating, and partly because inspiration can take many forms.

What inspires any of us to create, be it art, literature, music, or any manifestation of our innermost thoughts or whimsical observations? The creative mind is such a fascinating place and when coupled with excellent technique, it can move us with the beautiful outcome of an artist’s labours.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Be they timeless carvings (such as Michelangelo’s Pieta, above) or an incredible piece of tattoo art (from Filip Leu, below), sometimes it’s difficult to comprehend the visions of artists in full creative flow and it’s all you can do to marvel at the outcome.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What is it that inspires you, the readers of Tattoo Revolution? Let us know, as we’d love to hear your answers.

Lastly, just for shits and giggles, I thought I’d post up the track that helped cure my writer’s block this very day.

Eddie Hazels performance in this track is totally captivating. If you have ten minutes to spare, I implore you to plug in some headphones and immerse yourself in his sound.
