Any one want to help?

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!

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.

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.

Do you want a detailed dragon, or a solid tribal-like dragon?

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.

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 now, all I have to do is figure where I'm going to put that one.

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?

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 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!!!

Not that it really matters anymore, but...

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

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.

Is this any better? I darkened it a little (along with a few other things) so it's easier to see.

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.

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?

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?

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.

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.

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.
