View Full Version : Any one want to help?
28th September 2003, 17:38
Hi folks! I'm looking for some help on designing my next tattoo. So, here I am, shamelessly begging for some concept drawings (or even links to get some ideas) from our artistic members. SOMEONE, was supposed to design it, but, he's too busy and stuff. I'll have it done on my lower back, just a little above hip height. Here are some ideas floating around my mind:
A chinese dragon (to represent the Rugrat's birth year)
the Pices symbol (my birth month)
a fairy (no, not like Tinkerbell, something a little more darker)
and what the heck, even a Tribal design
Thanks and lots of love in advance!

Not even one person has replied to this? At all? This is shameful. Well, I hope someone has pm'd you with ideas. I think I might do something for you, if i can get it scanned in...

ShyShy I drew 3 tattoos for my friends and they actually got them! I'll draw those tattoos for you. Do you want a seperate concept drawn for each or some blends? I'd prefer you don't get tribal, it's pretty common. Maybe too common. ;)
30th September 2003, 08:19
Thanks guys, much appreciated. I'm looking to get the dragon and my birht month symbol somehow blended together. The tribal was just thrown out there in desperation.
30th September 2003, 08:46
Do you want a detailed dragon, or a solid tribal-like dragon?
30th September 2003, 09:16
Actually, I'm looking for a smooth design, more of a shading technique than details, I'm thinking of the time spent under the needle.
30th September 2003, 11:22
Oh I get it you want a regular tattoo style. Hopefully I'll make concept sketches by tomorrow. ;)
30th September 2003, 12:27
I have a silverback pendragon drawing that got converted into a wallpaper. Don't know if u want black n white or colored?
30th September 2003, 12:29
or how bout a nice flame...for the lower back
30th September 2003, 16:42
:igor: Not quite what I was looking for, Lee. But I'll give you a hug anyways, you're just too damn adorable!
psst, Nat! Your guilt-trip worked! Thanks!
30th September 2003, 17:27
ShyShy I made a few concept sketches like any of them?
Pices under the claw.
You still considering the evil fairy?
30th September 2003, 17:38
:eek: NICE! Damn, I knew I should have been a little more specific, but more along the lines of teh Chinese dragons, you know, gotta have that Asian pride and stuff.
edit/ yeah, still considering the evil fairy, just might make that one tat #4 :D now, all I have to do is figure where I'm going to put that one.
30th September 2003, 17:45
Oh you want the long body dragon without the wings? Why didn't you say so!! ;)
I'll draw up a evil ferry too. Any preference on where the Pices merges with the dragon?
BTW you are of some Asian decent? :confused:
30th September 2003, 20:00
she said she was...be cool too...
arent u asian also starbucks?
30th September 2003, 20:05
Yeah, I'm Asian too. But I thought she ment her daughter is half or something.
Wow, if she is part Asian I would have never guessed. ;)
30th September 2003, 22:45
LOL, I'm half white and half Filippino(Mutts of the China Sea). One of my maternal great-grandfather was a Spaniard that went AWOL during the American-Spanish war fought in the early 1900's, which accounts for the reddish tint to my hair and the freckles on my face :igor: ANYWAYS, back to work guys! Just found out today that the artist is going to do it for free when she gets back from the east coast at the end of October!!!
1st October 2003, 02:42
Ive got just the dragon you want, but i dont have a damn scanner, adn the one at school isnt working!! AHHHH! I also dont have a digicam, so it might be a day or two before i can get it to you. plus im thinking on working on an evil fairy.
and no problem bout the guilt trip! I figured you deserved it after a day with no responses!
1st October 2003, 02:48
I lub you, Nat! *smooches smooches*
1st October 2003, 03:24
I mentioned a while back that I draw these really gothic, complex drawings. Some people say they look like tatoos, which I agree on :)
Here's one of my favorites, not the best, but still a good one imo.
don't ask me where the name came from :igor:
1st October 2003, 03:40
WOW, that one I really like. Is there a way you could scan it a little cleaner?
1st October 2003, 03:46
No, sorry I don't have a scanner. I took that with a digital camera. I'll see if I can fix it up to be a little less blurry though.
1st October 2003, 04:07
Is this any better? I darkened it a little (along with a few other things) so it's easier to see.
1st October 2003, 06:12
The evil fairy. Pices symbol is there too, take a look! BTW, she is not wearing pants, only a top. :) Are you going to get a colored fairy? Another thing, the wings are sort of transparent.
1st October 2003, 06:18
Ding, Ding, Ding!!! Sold!
@Pixelcraft: I'm officially asking for your permission to use your drawing as a tattoo! With some minor tweaking of course by the tattoo artist herself.
@Starbucks: Same as above. Though I may have to wait on the fairy until next year, tax returns and stuff.
Guys, do you think there's a way to put the Chinese symbol in the Center of Pixel's design?
1st October 2003, 06:34
What chinese symbol?
So you'd rather have the Pices symbol with the fairy rather than the dragon am I correct?
BTW that dragon looks like a semi-tribal design, is that what you're looking for? Not the full detailed dragon right?
1st October 2003, 06:50
Last post for the nite, sorry for not being clearer. Pices symbol with the fairy, Chinese Dragon symbol with Pixel's design. Mucho lovings guys, I really appreciate it. And Pixel's design kinda looks like dragons, so I'll go with that one. Thanks Starbucks for your hard work, your drawings are really awesome.
1st October 2003, 07:06
1st October 2003, 12:33
You have my permission :)
Wow, that's great! Thanks a lot ShyShy!
Starbucks - You're a good artist! :up:
1st October 2003, 20:20
Why thank you Pixel ya aren't so bad yerself!
3rd October 2003, 06:23
The evil fairy has been coloured, and she is still not wearing any pants.
3rd October 2003, 06:51
Cool! Green's my favorite color too! That one's a keeper, now just have to think of a place to have it done, lol.
3rd October 2003, 18:03
BTW if you can't really notice the colors, her top is purple, her boot (she only has one boot on) is purple, her ass and face is your skin (duh), Wavy grass is green, fish are red, her hair is blonde (I melt like butter for blond haired women.) The scarf around her right leg is purple (I forgot to color it) and her wings are transparent green.
25th November 2003, 16:30
starbucks, what is that comming out of between your fairy's legs? :igor:
28th November 2003, 21:12
Oh that's a scarf ;)
2nd January 2004, 04:11
Sorry, pixel and Starbucks, I haven't been able to get either design done yet. The tattoo artist ended up staying on the East Coast and I've yet to find someone that comes highly recommended and affordable. I just wanted you to know that I haven't forgotten y'alls efforts on my behalf and I really do want these designs done. Thanks. :)
2nd January 2004, 04:23
Didn't bother to PM me..I see how it goes. :p :hang:
