Phil's Sleeve Captures Conflict

The occasional reader might notice we don't feature a lot of full sleeves on this site, partly due to the difficulty of properly capturing the artist's work. Every once in a while, however, I see something quite good and feel I have to give it a shot.

I ran into Phil this fall at one of my local grocery stores. He shared this sleeve with us:

It was done by Wil Scherer at Sanctuary Tattoo in Portland, Maine.

Phil explained that the work is "revolved around Zen Buddhism ... the figure at the top is one of the guardians from the Emerald Temple in Thailand."

It is in conflict with another guardian at the bottom of the sleeve.

This battle between the guardians reflect the conflict in life.

Thanks to Phil for sharing this amazing sleeve with us here on Tattoosday!
