Tattoo Design

I always wanted tattoos and always felt I'd only be satisfied if I illustrated them myself. I illustrated these 2 wolves which represent my family crest. The Navarro crest has two identical golden wolves on a shield with seven x's surrounding them. My interpretation was to have one hairy red wolf, and a green digital wolf reminiscent of early 3D computer models. I figured the contrasting textures/colors would look interesting together.
