Hi

Is there something that both you and your wife have in common that would symbolise your committment to one another?

A quote or saying could be added to the key or ivy and floral effect.

Need to know a little more about tastes.

Take care
Matthew

Well … we have been married since August 13 2009… we started dating on July 12 2009… we jus fell in love… planned a wedding and got married… We have plenty in common as far as our likes and dislikes but not like a hobby or anything… we both love music, motorcycles, cars, decorating, gardening…. you see I cant really give any direction here… and I know that an artist really needs at least a direction to go in in order to help… I dunno what to say … I am normally very creative but I have drawn a blank on this one… I know I am not into florals, or anything with skulls or evil looking stuff… I kinda was thinking about turning into some kinda cross using the Key as the middle… I am Christian so religous tones i guess could be good here…

Thanks in advance for any help that anyone may can give

The key was done in traditional “old school” style (simple design, bold line work, heavy black shading). I would stick with the same style or the key is going to look out of place. Typically roses, nautical stars, Anchors, swallows, stuff like that are used in traditional designs. Hope it helps.

Am I asking a Taboo question or something? Does artists not generally draw ideas for people?

Hey If you want a person to design a tatt go into a shop- a good shop and ask them, personally i think old skool stuff would look cool, and if your into bikes etc, maybe a scroll with the date u first started dating/ got married ( if i was a tattoo artist which im not, id be very tempted to do a scroll with coup de foudre in old school text- coup de foudre meaning love at first site in french)…..

Hi

In answer to your question no it is not taboo to ask an artist to draw something up for you.

The reality is that few on these forums or other forums will draw something up because of the following;

They are pro artists and do not do things for free – it is purely business and should not be taken personally. Even them giving out advice is something they choose to do and actually takes them away from their main concern which is making money.

The second is that many tattoo artists do not like working from another artist’s template. if you pay an artist to draw something up you will likely have to pay a tattoo artist to interpret the same drawing and make a tattoo design from it.

Why pay twice? Just take your ideas to the tattoo artist of choice and they will draw it up for you at one charge.

Also just to cover the ‘x artist from here did x design for x’ – there have been occasions where artists have sketched something for free. This is usually because the person asking was a committed member/contributor or had some form of private agreement with the artist which means again it was business.

That or there maybe serious blackmail involved who knows?

Take Care
