Tattoo, Full Shoulder Piece with bleed to chest and back (masculine) - The Christian Quo Vadis Legend in Black and White, sharp, stylized and modernized, but retaining classic elements. Here is the story: A legend has Peter walking along a road outside of Rome, fleeing arrest and certain death, when he comes to a crossroads: where the Appian Way meets the Via Ardeatina. There he meets our risen Lord. “Quo vadis?” Peter asks, to which Jesus replies: “Romam vado iterum crucifigi.” I am going to Rome to be crucified again. At that very spot there is now a church (St. Mary in Palmis) familiarly known as Chiesa del Domine Quo Vadis. The original Christian structure constructed there to commemorate the meeting (the current church was erected in 1637) was probably built atop an ancient pagan place of worship: one of a myriad of instances of Catholicism’s “syncretic genius” in adapting pagan cults (and converting Gentiles) to the One True Faith. The end of the story, of course, is the end of Peter. He turns around and heads back towards Vatican Hill in Rome to be crucified. This is the last time he would need to be redirected by Jesus. The focus of this work should be Peter, a rugged fisherman, more brawn then brains, but faithful, sorrowful, and self-reflective as he's now made another mistake, to flee Rome. Peter is older in this legend, but still retains classically stark physical features as a man who walks/travels regularly from Judea to Italy and still fishes often. Background elements include cobblestoned Appian Way, Quo Vadis Church, Roman Architecture, etc. I'm looking for an illustration of the moment Peter turns to return to Rome, now knowing his fate.
There are very few images and illustrations that exist to depict this legend and they are not appropriate for a tattoo. Here are links to a few to use for ideas, but replicating them as is in this piece would miss the objective: http://www.christianhistoryproject.org/to-the-destruction-of-jerusalem/emperor-nero/story-of-quo-vadis/ https://www.walksinrome.com/blog/the-church-of-domine-quo-vadis-rome https://rome.us/ancient-rome/the-appian-way.html Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. I like sharp b/w tattoo art, aggressive design but not disrespectful of the subject. I have an artist to do the tattooing, but illustrating this Christian legend with sharp metal music styling is the first step (attached photo is just a cool sleeve example).
