Tattoo by Orbnauticus Tattoo by Orbnauticus
I actually did this back sometime in 2006. I'm just slow to upload, even though I'm actually pretty proud of this piece.

I read whatever chapter of the manga it was when Riza's tattoo was revealed, and just had to draw it. I was having a fangirl moment...and the idea popped in my head and I went with it. I'm such a Royai nut sometimes.

Inked in pen, then colored in Photoshop. At that point, it was definately my best digital piece and an improvement on what I had been doing.

God, could you imagine how painful it must have been for Riza to have that inked on her, and then have it partly burned?

i think its really beautiful. although her tattoo is actually red, but it looks like you
did this one before the brotherhood anime was even out. so i guess it was from manga...

Aww. This is incredibly sweet. I love Roy's tender expression and the way that he's holding Riza. You've succeeded at showing how much he cares about her... and how he obviously cares about her more than the tattoo. I love how intimate this is, too. The mood in this drawing is touching and truly beautiful. :heart: :iconx3v2plz: :eager: :la:

Is this supposed to be set after Roy burns Riza's tattoo? Because there seems to be some scars on her back... and they're in their military uniforms.

Wow, Riza's tattoo is sooo cool! It must have been hell to ink and whatnot...I'd get one just like it if it didn't hurt so much...*shudder*

Excellent piece. Very emotional, melikey Roy's expression. And his hand slowly creeping toward her butt. A very Roy-esque thing to do.

Thanks so much for your comment!

That tattoo was a pain and having only like two references for it in the manga to go by only made it harder to try to get right. It would make a cool real tattoo..but I'm afraid of the pain too.

Yeah...it's only in the manga. And those are scars across it.

I wish it had been in the anime. It adds a bunch of backstory to Roy and Riza.

Aww, it's so cute. Roy's expression is tender, but his hand is still creeping towards her butt.

Not that she'll mind at all. XDDD

Thanks for the comment.

*Spoiler warning for anyone else*

Her father was an alchemist, and placed the tattoo on her back. The secrets of his alchemy were encoded in it. He taught Roy, so you can see in the tattoo where Roy's salamander symbol thing comes from. (There hasn't been too much information about it in the manga, at least from what's been released so far.)
