Phaun tattoo on leg

Tauaje de fauno


A tattoo done by Alessandro Florio. It resembles the head of a Phaun, one of the classic Greek mythological creatures. According to the Greek Mythology, these creatures were half man and half a goat, with horns in the head. Fauns inhabited forests and they would sometimes help travelers, but in other occasions they would intimidate humans and make them loose their way through the forest.

Fauns are considered physical manifestations of the forest spirit and they would gladly help those travelers in need as long as they respected the forest.
