Caterpillar Tattoo Picture

A large black, blue, gray and white caterpillar tattoo on the back of this guy's hand. Nice dots and dashes of white ink for the hightlights.

The critter is drawn with a strong line of perspective with the head much closer than the tail; this make it appear that it is crawling directly at the viewer. Heavily shaded leaves, a twig and some orange touches complete the pleasing to the eye design.

Meaning of a caterpillar tattoo: change, metamorphosis, a new beginning on a very different path, one about to change from plain to beautiful (i.e., to become a butterfly of beauty).
