Badass “Starry Knight” Tattoo [Pic]


----------------

 

I love tattoos, but don’t have one because I can’t ever think of anything I’d like to keep forever. I never considered a comics-plus-classical-art mashup though, so maybe my options have opened up a bit. Pan Rozmyty‘s ink is all the best elements of post-impressionism and pop culture in a design called “Starry Night over the Gotham City”, drawn by Dominika Gardocka of Skorpion Sosnowiec tattoo studio in Poland.

I think it’s awesome, though I will deduct two points for totally missing the opportunity to make a night/knight pun. Otherwise, A++ would like again.

EDIT: It’s been brought to our attention that Pan Romyty’s design is based on an original work by artist James Hance. Hance’s Batman-meets-Van Gogh predates Romyty’s tattoo; a print is available for purchase (just $10!) on Hance’s website.

    • James: I'm editing the post–I'm sorry you weren't credited; as you can see, there was no mention of you in the original post. We'll let GAS readers know that this was inpsired by your original idea.

  1. This artwork wasn't inspired by this plagiarist's "post-impressionist" brain and elements from the internet. It was taken directly from an established artist by the name of James Hance as I'm sure you've seen in the other comments. For the sake of your own credibility you might want to mention that in your write up here even if the thief isn't stating it himself.

  2. That looks just like one of my favorite paintings by James Hance, that’s called Dark Starry Knight. Nice to see it in the flesh (but would have been more decent to have named him as the original!)

  4. I can't believe the balls on this guy to claim "his brain" came up with this. He ripped it off! He thought it was good enough to scar his body with, forever, but not good enough to give credit to the true artists that came up with it?! I'm disgusted by this plagiarism as I, myself am an artist and I'm outraged as a fan of James Hance's original work- and of HIS brain that came up with it.
