Boy/Bear Tattoo by Sean Adams

“This tattoo is based on a Kiowa story explaining the creation of Bear Butte and the Pleiades constellation.  In the story, a boy is chasing his 7 sisters pretending to be a bear when he is suddenly transformed into one.  The bear chases the seven sisters onto a stump, which grew higher and higher, lifting them into the sky.  The scoring on the sides of the land formation are explained by the bears claws as he tried to reach the girls.  The story was really interesting and it was a lot of fun to depict the bear and boy’s characters!”
