Our artists took two Porsche 911’s and designed the hoods of both in their unique styles.

 

The Black Porsche 911

The Black Porsche 911 was inspired and created by Nico Canon, our watercolour tattoo artist.

The piece was inspired by watercolour and realism tattoos. The woman, tiger, mandala, and nature symbols are a homage to the wild yet beautiful side of nature. These elements are what Porsche represents - beauty, power, elegance, and speed. In comparison to a Lamborghini which has more of an aggressive sharp shape, the Porsche 911 holds softer curves. The artist incorporated feminine beauty which is represented in the woman, and a stronger wilder side which the artist represented in the tiger. Both elements face the same direction because just as with the Porsche 911, the woman and the tiger are one and the same - beauty and power. Nature and mandala symbols represent a spiritual connection within all women and men. This is what the Porsche 911 represents: a mix of beauty, elegance, attention to detail, and strength.

 

The White Porsche 911

The white Porsche 911 was inspired and created by Sleestak, a blackwork tattoo artist on picktheink.com in collaboration with Chris Price is Right. The piece was inspired by blackwork tattoos, using common elements such as the spiders web, the flower and skull, and the plaque in the top right corner.
