    Challenge For Artists

    I am looking into getting a tattoo, and I cant seem to find what I am looking for, so I will be having some people draw me up some ideas. I was thinking along the line of a motorbike helmet with the number '11' on it, as well as a pair of Aces. Coming through the visor I would like a caramel albino . It probably sounds like a weird combination, but it covers the things that I really like!

    If any of you artists fancy a challenge feel free to draw one up

    I would stick with just one of your ideas...too many people try to put all of their ideas in one tattoo...most just turn out looking odd. Trying to fit 50 lbs of crap in a 10 lb bag doesn't work too well.

    I can sketch you up somethin', but you should start by finding a tatto artist near you who has a killer portfolio with a lot of the style you have in mind for this. Then talk to him about it and have him draw it. A good tattoo artist won't steer you wrong, and he will let you know if it can be done and how it will look best on your body. Plus most good tattoo artists are really good fine artists as well, so he should be able to draw you something perfectly.

    Sure, I'll put something up... just give me a few to get it done.

    I would also reccommend getting a tattoo artist to sketch you something up.

    Why dont you get the artist who is doing your tattoo to draw it up... Its their job to be creative and blow up your ideas...

    Re: Challenge For Artists

    Ok, I drew this up on MS paint real quick. I looked at a pic of a helmet on google for reference. Is this something like what you had in mind?



    Now remember, you're only 16. What you're into now may seem rediculous to you five years down the road. Tats also can look bad if you're at a job resume or in a work environment, so getting them on your back, chest, or other places that would generally be under your shirt is good.
    I also know that some tattoo parlors won't put ink on any minors without the parents signing a form.

    Ok, well I'll shut up now, I'm rambling again.

    Cool stuff!

    I was jammin' with the CS2 30 day trial, but after the 30 day trial was gone I had to go back to faithful paint.
