the fox with nine tails - tattoo design
This tattoo design was a special request and to be honest, I didn't know about it's significance prior to this. The fox with nine tails is a Japanese symbol that actually originates from Chinese folklore. If you'd like, you can find out more about this subject, just google kitsune or húli jīng and you should find all the details you want.
But getting back to the tattoo design, the client wanted a golden fox, half realistic, half geometric, with a couple other symbolic elements. This is what it ended up looking on paper, I can't wait to show you the tattoo version, which looks a bit different, but definitely better, in my opinion.
