Postmodern Femininity

Happy Thursday to everyone!.
Wanted to make this post extra special, because I'm gonna go in a short vacations, coming back until sunday!
And this drawing is extra special for me. The image that got me inspired can be found here, is from an editorial for Harper's Bazaar UK featuring the striking Ashley Smith.
As you can see I wanted to mix it a bit, so I though into fusion the idea of ethnic culture with modernity, and I came up with this, a girl that have Molas tattooed in her skin. 
Being from Panama, Molas are a very important artistic expression and I just love all the patterns and all the different designs that people come out with. Is a very important part of my culture.
So I'm sure all of you have something like that in your own countries, a magnificent, ancestral and atemporal expression of culture.
Waiting to see all your  responses,  really hope you all like it :)
Have a great weekend everyone!

Wow, I love this piece you did! It's gorgeous and caught my eye straight away with all the bright colours.
I think it's really great you put your own spin on it by including something from your own culture!
