Alex Grey & E.A.Poe Inspired Maccbre
About this tattoo
An Alex Grey inspired piece based on the soul, death and spirituality with influence and some subject from Edgar A. Poe.
As a fan of Alex Greys work, from seeing my first Tool Album cover as a teenager, I loved his style and subjects. Even from a young age I had a sense of spirituality and was captured by the notion of all things spritual and supernatural. Both Poe and Grey, believe that eyes are windows to the soul and I myself find eyes the most attractive or distracting thing about a person.
The Barn Owl is a native creature to where I am from but has also played a part at certain milestones of my life. I thought it even more fitting as owls are seen as gardians of the afterlife in many cultures.
