Something I don't paint a lot (and usually don't show).
Concept for one of my OC's tattoos. I still haven't drawn Joachim (I can't really see his face on my mind) but his tattoos have a very neat design!
Joachim Marion (yes, it can be for a man too)
Joshua Ravenkranz (his father was Steingalt, his mother Oldfelding, they mixed their family names) is a legendary priest of Darkness (linked to the ancient cult of Kaïlynn, and not Argast), knowing a lot of things about the many plots disrupting the Lands. Presently, he is missing believed dead... All I can say about his past is that Griever hated him and the Holy Knights of El tried to kill him several times...
The tattoo on his chest is a circle sigil sealing up an old and dangerous being in his body (a being he needs to live himself, since most of his body is made of Soulice, a very rare component found in Vorago).
The tattoo he holds on his nape is commonly known as the Key of Darkness, allowing him to use the power from the Vorago without fearing most of its awful
compensations (including a corrupted soul).
Tattoos in the Shredded Lands are usually linked to Ink Magic, steming from Oblivion (the Plane of Chaos), but the ritual Joachim had to go through can be considered as a dark ceremony with the chaotic means...
(wish I could do this in vector to have a neater effect >_< and well... considering their respective designs, it will be pure fun to draw them on his skin
