Tattoo design complete!!! **PIC**

Recommended Posts

Alright ladies, so I mentioned on the tattoo thread that I'm about to take the ink plunge! First one ever and I'm petrified of needles ... but besides that I'm SO excited.

 

So, my Mum is a phenomenal artist and I asked her to design my tattoo for me (as that would give it more meaning right away), and I asked her to try and channel me when she designed ... I gave her no guidelines, no restrictions ... just told her where I wanted it (on my right side, stretching down from the start of my shoulder blade, over my rib and to my waist ... probably from 6-10" long ... depending). I'm a writer ... always have been, always will be ... and I currently work as an editor ... so words are my life pretty much ...

 

And this is what she came up with (note that the font will likely change as I'm not too keen on it):

Tell me what you girls think!!!! And I'll FOR SURE post a pic of the finished product ON ME!

I like the feather. I just got my 3rd tattoo this weekend and a feather was something I considered for the meaning of mine (it's a really personal meaning though, so not going to get into that).

 

One thing that I can think of is that the writing is SO small. I am not sure that it would be usable art the way it is now. While I got mine this weekend, my SIL got one also and she got her daughters names, only 7 letters, but they had to make it pretty big so that it's visible and doesn't blur together. Are the words very important to you? Or is it more about the image? The words are pretty small as they are now and I am having trouble reading them..

I was a bit worried that the words would be too small as well ... and the tattoo parlor had mentioned that smaller letters tend to be fade quickly and would need to be retouched often.

 

They are rather significant ... but I'm wondering if the artist can maybe beef them up a bit? So they aren't SO small ... I don't like the font either so I'd want that changed ... and my Mum made a boo-boo ... it's a quote from the Rudyard Kipling poem "If" and the last work should be "aim" not "master" on the bottom line ...

I would def take this to a tattoo artist (the one you are going to use) and ask for their input. I think changing the font and making it bigger would help, but not sure. That's alot of words. But I am not artist! So I think you should take it to one and see what they say. They might be able to do something to it that makes it workable. But you've def got a good place to start!

I like it w/o the text better. It's more "pure" looking or something. And I never considered sepia tone for a tattoo, which I guess would just be brown instead of black. that could be cool. Have you spoken to your tattoo artist yet though? I'd be a little scared that a tattoo in all brown would just look like faded black or something.

I think it's awesome and your mom did a great job. I love the sepia tone, but my only concern is how it would look when you have a tan or something. I actually like the tattoo with the words. I think it adds just a little extra touch.

 

Good luck getting your first tattoo, hubby has been trying to convince me to get one, but I'm too chicken. lol

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
