Do NOT repost, either on tumblr or anywhere else unless you've specifically asked beforehand - bafflingly this still seems like a monumental task for some people. It's here on tumblr, so you can reblog it from there.

Title lovingly borrowed from one of my favourite Russian Circles songs, but the word is also surprisingly relevant. This was originally in full colour, but I started hating the way I was colouring half way through, so it got switched back over to greyscale.

A medical caduceus on his left shoulder.  That is really cool, and your Sherlock looks great too.

Beautiful anatomy.. your figures are incredible. I think people forget to make John more muscular.. I mean if he was an army guy then wouldnt he be? :)

Nah, it's complete fanon. It just seemed to me like something John might've done in his (much) younger days, now I can't stop drawing him with it.

UUUUUM brilliant!! I agree...John + tattoo=instant amazingness, and the tenderness with which the boys seem to regard each other with is really cute and warm-fuzzies-inducing! Faved!

I like it in greyscale, actually - I'm glad it's not colored! In greyscale, it's more like it's the middle of the night, when there isn't a lot of color anyway. Somehow it makes it more intimate. There's something about the curve of John's back - really beautiful.
