Well, I think I got a better picture of that. I found it on March of 2006, forgotten where I found it who the artist is though.

Here is the picture,

These are others which I found on that day,

anybody with more savvy about this wanna comment on how feasible this would be? would it translate badly to black + shading only?

@LetsGetSerious no way, that's a skull? sarcasm aside, I was wondering if there was any relevance to the third eye or if it was just some random design.

Haha sorry if I came off as a dick, I just don't know if there's any meaning to it.

In other news, getting my exgf's name (I KNOW... i know) finally covered up on Tuesday, can't wait. Then getting tattooed by Steve Boltz on Thursday. Going to be a good week.

For anyone that has allegorical ink, how did you get your ideas turned into reality? Did you find an artist with the right background? Did you have to do most of the heavy lifting yourself? Did your artist do research outside of your consultation?

I'm ready to start doing some large work and haven't found anyone yet that I'm totally convinced is "right." Not sure if I should be looking more by style or by background.

Cheers

Tom

You and I always have similar ideas. This style from that period looks almost the same outside of the glass form, are you going for a stained glass look?

what i want is really really complicated and probably out of my budget for now, so im just dreaming it up. but i'd want it as close to 1:1 as possible, with just black ink and shading. some parts would definitely be impossible unless its huge, which is why my budget is the biggest constraint right now. just an idea for now.

I've had this one for about 8 years now, it has a stain glass theme.

Here's a maybe (probably) stupid question that's been talked about before. How do you guys deal with people asking you about your tattoos? I feel like if I got something with personal meaning it would just be awful trying to explain it to people, trying to convey your feelings about something that they most definitely don't care about or won't understand.

This is one of the things that's been holding me back from getting something.

this shouldn't hold you back. i mean, it sure can be annoying, especially in the beggining when all your friends will ask about it.

you also don't need to tell the exact or right meaning of your tattoo. i've never told the actual one of mine and always just say "oh i thought it'd look great".

My biggest fear with that was sounding like a pretentious idiot when describing out loud why i got the tattoos. I pretty much just say "because I've always liked _______"

I've been wanting a tattoo on the inside of my bicep for awhile. I just don't know what to get! torn between finding a really cool image, or maybe just a meaningful saying in handwriting. Idk.

how do you think the cover of Catcher in the Rye would turn out? Just the carousel horse in black ink. I'm a really big Salinger fan and that book is what pretty much what got me super into literature and writing.

why not get the entire book cover, title and all? i think it could look great. Just the outline would just look like an unfinished tattoo to me but then again it is not my tattoo so...
