2 new tats comin in a couple weeks

Well... I've decided to de-virginise my non-ink'd on skin...

I drew this up myself about 2 years ago... Its going on my left calf...



Then, I found this one on SRTForums.com but I'm going to have my buddy Chris at Ken's Creative Designes draw this one out... The way mine will be setup is bio mechanical the height and width of my shoulder blade across my back...then going down my spine bio mechanical as well... is it'll be like the one below but all the way across... and down the spine


Whats everyone think of the idears?

i think the spine might be a decent idea (ouch?) the calf design is a cool one too but im not a fan of calf tattoos.

going all the way down your spine will deff take a few sessions... my buddy did his whole side and it took 6. he had color tho... I love that idea tho!

Even heroes know when to be scared.

hahaha. yea, I think my buddy Chris the artist told me you start from the middle of the whole tattoo and work outward...so I'll probably end up getting my spine along done in one or 2 sessions but the rest done in a few more sessions... $$$ is a small detail

If you are getting biomechanical work done, Shred at Shreds Inferno does terrific work. I am not endorsing his beliefs, he is a nazi asshole, but he does terrific biomechanical work. Here is an example of his work.



And you will never see a good clear copy of the work on my leg. I do not want it copied. I have about 80 to 100 hours on a piece from my knee to ankle (drumstick), and about 20 hours left. I have no idea what I spent on it.

That top pic will be pretty cool, wifey gives it a thumbs up. Just understand the artist may add or subtract stuff from your drawing, make sure you are happy with the final piece, do not be afraid to speak up.

hey, if this is your first tat i would suggest you start off with something smaller, i mean you can always add on later.

Fuck that, get what you want, as large as you want. If you get a small tattoo you cannot add onto later, you will end up with a bunch of little crap pieces.

Cuz I don't know anyone who wishes they had heeded the advice given just prior to yours

Removing tattoos hurts a hell of a lot more than getting 'em...I second the sentiment in starting with a smaller tattoo

I will go with you there, make sure you get what you want, get it from a reputable safe shop, and ask to see their work. If possible, talk to the people that have recieved tattoos fom the artist, and check out their work when it is healed.
BTW, I waited until I was 31 to start my leg, it is from my knee to my ankle. And that was my second tattoo, only have 2.5 tattoos now.

I'm not sure I like the lower legs on the little gremin skeleton. Seems to wide at the ankle and the feet to short. Nice job on the drawing otherwise, cool concept.

The spine is more tolerable than the calf when it comes to so called pain or irritation. When they did my spine between my shoulder blades, I fell asleep. When they did a much smaller tattoo on the side of my calf, I couldn't sit still.

Tolerances are different from person to person. Just remember "Get what YOU want."

I've been wanting a tattoo for years now, but have never really, really found something that I liked. I really like that biomechanical stuff. I might have to look into that. I don't want anything too big, maybe just a 5" x 5" area on my shoulder blade or inbetween them. Hmmm....

another thing to add to the "get what you want." when you're ready to do it, check the colors the artist is going to use. i gave the guy a pic for my color scheme and he started doing a black section in red. i'm like WTF, the pic is clearly black. since it was the black from a color inkjet, he thought it was red. fixable mistake, but it could have been easily prevented. never be afraid to make changes to what they come up with, it's your body.

That artist should have taken and drawn your tattoo on paper and colored it in with colored pencils to clarify colors.

You my friend are a moron then. Kim Saigh could tattoo me anytime. She works SOOO slow though, and usually it is floral. I pick Kat on next years dead pool.

Why am I a moron Dave? I like Kat's work with portraits. I want a portrait of my late fahja before he passed away of cancer.

I agree, as long as it is something that is relatively simple, adding to it later is not difficult. Why not just get the eyeball, rather than the eyeball monster guy. If you decide that you like the eyeball, you can do the whole tattoo later. If you decide that you don't want to terrify your child everytime they see you get out of the shower or wear shorts, then change it to something else like a bullseye or something else circular.

Regretting tattoos sucks, I know too many people with ridiculous tats.
