I think your idea can be worked into a tattoo and might turn out really great. But, I think you need more space than 9 x 7 inches. Too much detail in a small area might get mushy and in the long run look blurry.
I also think (this is my opinion) that asking someone other than your tattoo artist to do the artwork might be a risky deal. Maybe if you ask for someone to put something together so the artist can get an idea of what you want and then let him/her do the final artwork…..
Definately update us on what you come up with.
I think I got that from Yorvo or whatever his name is here.
I’ve been known to use that phrase.
I didn’t realize he was here, too, unti now. He must’ve snuck in the back door under a different name like I did.
Concept scratch, the top image is closest to what I wanted… I sent the stuff to matt macabre of spectrum dermographics in oswego to take a look
I could do something like that for you but I don’t take paypal. Could you send me a money order for $40
I’m going to see what this artist thinks about it first though. And sorry, but would only use paypal others are too much hassle, and even then only prepay for someone with a portfolio of similar work.
Mother Fuck thats a lot in a small space. When I saw the post abou tthe size I started thinking to myself “back of the hand”. Everything I have to say to the OP has been said so I wont bother.
One more thing… we need a list of all the jumpers lol.
BW Is an amazing artist, you should go to WA and pay him in cash.
He has the cleanest, most sterile van I’ve ever seen.
To be honest I really don’t understand why you guys are saying it’s a lot of stuff for a small space… when these oriental or japanese tattoos have like 50 things in one square inch of skin, clearly proving so much detail in small spaces isn’t a problem, for example:
I am really looking forward to seeing what the artist comes uo with. Please share it with us… maybe we are all wrong in saying you need more space for your concept.
I also think there’s a difference in that the picture you posted the various elements flow better together and belong together where as some of the elements you mentioned for your design don’t necessarily sound like they will fit with each other and blend nicely. Of course, we may all be wrong like suzridesahog just said.
Take any 4 inch by 4 inch square out of that tattoo, and it would not function as a self sustained tattoo. Yes, you can fit detail in small amounts of space if it ties into a larger piece and is coherent with the rest of the work. Make sense? And didn’t anyone ever tell you that bigger is better; just sack up and get it an appropriate size.
