      Thanks again too you all for everything. Still trying to catch up with everyone so I send my appologies. When done right, gorilla tattoos look great in detail, even beautiful when all the features are done correctly. Always interesting learning the meanings, history behind such tattoos and why someone would choose them. Bill, great question. Hopefully I am halfway by now. LOL

      I don't think I've ever seen a gorilla tattoo, because they have such a striking appearance, that it would be memorable. Voting this Up and Beautiful.

      Some of these are really beautiful works of art. Being a fan of Jane Goodall, as well as Dian Fossey, I just had to take a look at these.
