TIFF Bell Lightbox: X-Men Master Gordon Smith, August 2012-March 2013


The original concept of Nightcrawler did not include tattoos or scarification. in order to give the character more depth, a back story was developed by tattoo artist Daemon Rowanchilde about how Kurt Wagner sat in a church basement carving the angelic sigils (said to have magical properties) into his flesh in order to redeem his tortured soul.
