The Gaze

This is a very intriguing and powerful looking tattoo.

Here is a man with a crown of thorns, looking down in what is an odd perspective…it is near and far, all at once! He has beams of light coming from his eyes and evil looking, snake-like heads coming from his beard.

The detail on the face is well done, making his skin look old from his cheeks to his brow. The crown is darker with a brownish tint to it, displayed across his forehead with its jagged features. His eyes are blank, with a darkened outline on the eyelids. The heads coming from his beard have a mean/angry feature on their faces, as they too have blank eyes.

Is this Jesus or an Old Testament view of a stern God?

Perhaps… but whatever is the meaning of this scene, it is one heck of a full back tattoo.
