The True Believer

Acrylic on Canvas



This painting is available for purchase in my Shop

'The True Believer' is an homage to Sailor Jerry, the man who popularised tattoos in Western society.  His patrons were predominantly Sailors and his designs directly translated to their lives spent mostly at sea away from loved ones for months on end.  Common themes for Sailor Jerry tattoos include Luck, Love, Loss and Nautical concepts; all of which can be found in this painting.  This original painting features a blue nude standing before a yellow background filled with stars.  With a full body adorned in old school Jerry Sailor tattoos, this artwork is reflective of the tattoo culture of our current day.  With its authentic tattoo colour palette this painting will appeal to lovers of tattoos, the female form and Pop Art in general.

This is an original painting created with Atelier professional acrylic paints. Painted on unstretched (31.5"x31.5" / 80x80cm) 12oz Fredrix Cotton Primed Canvas.  This painting  will be accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.  All paintings are sealed with a high quality UV Resistant gloss varnish.
