Let your imagination free with these fantasy blackwork patterns.
The dragon is a Chinese beast, due to having four legs. They are said to be a symbol of good luck, power and strength. Unlike western dragons he is not aggressive but benevolent.
The other mythological creature featured in my fantasy blackwork collection is the mermaid.
Some cultures think that mermaids are nasty and connected with shipwrecks and drowning, while others consider them as friendly and tell stories of them falling in love with humans. I like to think of Marina as belonging to the second group.
