Hey guys I am looking to get my first tattoo. And I wanted to get it about myself.

I am half japanese and half persian. And I was thinking a tattoo would be an awesome way to show both different cultures.

I've been brainstorming and I can't seem to get any ideas how to make it work.

Please guys give me some ideas,suggestion and etc.

Guest I LOVE LFC

Honestly, to me, it sounds like you're thinking about it too much.

Have a look at some japanees/persian art see if that helps.

Samurai idea is pretty cool though.

Wish I was born in a culturaly(?) better place!

Vikings are cool, but I have never seen a cool viking tatt...

EDIT: I'm from Scandinavia, obviously.

I'm going to get stephen harper's face with a poutine on his head and his face smothered in gravy.

Too many tattoos, too many artist. everything on hiatus since we are expecting a child.

a long time ago someone here posted a pdf of an old book of illustrations where it essentially archived a surrealist world. the illustrations looked like they were done in colored pencil, and had some made up alphabet, does anyone remember what it was?

/\

were the flame looking things around your nipple there already?

the width is very bold compared to the fine lines used for the rest of the piece.

yep, i got those stylized hawaiian fish hooks back in 2003 in memorial of my late wife. the fish hook is a symbol of unity and strength in hawaiian culture though rarely used in polynesian tattoo. they actually spell out her name in the crescent part and the "flames" are her angel wings from my heart.

the new tattoo encapsulates my past with my present and future since i've been re-married. the new work has lots of repetitive symbols for new beginning, family, unity, prosperity, fertility, strength, wisdom, and generations among other things.
