St first glance it's hard to figure out what exactly this piece of art represents because of the bare bone of the rib cage, the beautiful blossoms, and the heart that is the only thing that stands out in a bold manner even though it's covered with blackened ribs. When I was sketching out this drawing a lot of things where going through my mind. I was thinking of beauty, suffocation, fear, love, joy, pain, curious, and stunned. I think what this drawing conveys is how no matter how gloomy, depressed, confused or frustrated you feel, beauty and love will always find it's way through all the despair. The flowers will eventually gain its color back as the sorrow fades away. I hope you like learning how to draw a rib cage tattoo, I really love how this drawing concept came out.
