I had started another thread on a similar topic, but I have had some further thought about a possible tattoo. I like the idea of a snake shedding its skin. Not sure I want the tattoo to be too realistic – I like black and white tattoos, and silhouettes, and even symbolic tattoos. Any thoughts or examples?

I like Black and white cookies.
I think Wolf is referring to Black and Gray tattoos. At least I hope so!

Tattoos are for the living. Tombstones are for the dead. Get a tattoo for yourself!

Have you ever seen a snake shed its skin? I have and have had many snakes when they shed it’s not a pretty site I don’t think it would make a good tattoo at all in either black and white or black and grey.

I have seen a snake shedding skin. And agree, not a good look! I think it is a good concept for a tattoo, but perhaps not practical!

You don’t have to be inventive to get a great tattoo. Snake tattoos can be insane!
Anywho, here’s one I really like. If you add extra stuff like shedding skin in the back there, it could be cool – but also, this could also make the tattoo messy, hard to define / hard for people to see what’s what. Less is more, less is clean, clean is good.

Well it has been a while, but I have had some more time to think about this tattoo (although I still haven’t convinced the wife!), and I have done some searching to find some cool snake tattoos. I have some ideas, but I am keen to see if other people have seen some snake pics they think look good. Apart from the tattoo being black and grey, possibly with a little colour, the only other consideration would be that it needs to look a little aggressive, but not with fangs out (again, thinking of the wife here). And it will probably be on my back/shoulder blade.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
