Celtic Zoomorphic Chest Plate Tattoo - left side

Today's tattoo is the completion of a project that began with the right side, featuring an eagle, dog and eel, and today added a peacock, lion, and eel. The shapes are inspired by the Japanese chest piece tattoos, that now unite to form a graceful and attractive silhouette. The client had specific requests for animals symbolically important to him that were a challenge to bring to life.
