Poseidon Tatt - Jake
Benefit for International Sustainable Institute 2011
Haute Trash Fashion Shows
Costume Designer: Bill Gaylord
Model: Jake Derry
Temptu body paint for a Poseidon costume. This design was developed in tandem with Bill Gaylord, who created and designed a costume called "The Vortex" for the ReStore's annual Trash Fashion Show. Bill's costume was amazing - Poseidon arising out of a sea of plastic garbage, his trident impaling the world. See it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvJQe5Yrt_E&feature=player_em...
The actual design itself was inspired by the amazing blackwork tattoos of Roni Zulu -- you can find him on Facebook at: www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=737215592
Since two people "played" Poseidon, I redid the design 3 different times, each time changing it slightly. On some of the designs you can see traces of watercolor pencil where I drew out basic proportions.
I used TEMPTU PLATINUM but mixed the color to get a genuine tribal tattoo color.
