Hello, Dalí! Bryan's Surrealist Sleeve

Last summer, I met Bryan on the Rector Street subway platform. He was kind enough to share a full sleeve of tattoos inspired by the work of Salvador Dalí:

This section is inspired by The Burning Giraffe (1937):

Then, there's this skull:

This was based on a poster Dalí designed for an anti-venereal disease campaign during World War II, dubbed Vagina Dentata:

Of course, everyone is familiar with this Dalí image, from his famous painting The Persistence of Memory:

The bleeding roses in this tattoo

are inspired by this painting:

And then there is this last skull image:

This piece is based on Dalí's The Face of War:

Bryan credited all of the tattoo work to Chris Mason (@chrismasontattoo) at Live Wire Arts (@livewirearts) in West Islip, New York.

Thanks to Bryan for sharing all of this amazing work with us here on Tattoosday!
