Leg placement? [Tuesday
February 3rd, 2009 at 10:42pm]

shanna_souzou
So I found out yesterday that I should be getting back a big chunk of change on my taxes. Even if I put half in savings, I have plenty left over for a tattoo. After I saw the dollar amount, I decided that I really want my sugar skull. Its been over two years now that I've wanted it and lack of funds is a big excuse out the window.

But I just can't decide on the placement. With much consideration, the back, arms, ribs, and hips are out which leaves my legs. I have a lyrical band tattoo on my left ankle and you can find pictures in my previous post.

I just don't know where on my leg and I know alot of the design is going to depend on where I want it. I'm just really concerned about symmetry and unity. I feel like if I did the back of my calf, I would have to come up with a similar theme or style for the corresponding tattoo on the other leg. So I'm leaning more towards the outside of my right calf, though I'm still unsure if I want to fill the whole space or just part of it (I have different designs in mind for both.) I love the larger design but am unsure about going so big, of course, I was scared about my first tattoo and now I can't imagine my skin without it.

I'm just worried that my legs might become a hodge-podge collection of random tattoos. And maybe that's cool but I don't want them all to look like stickers. With sleeves or a back piece, I like the sense of flow you get with a theme or a particular style. But I just don't see alot of discussion about multiple tattoos on the legs aside from matching ones on the calves or feet. I mean, I've even heard people in other tattoo circles say you shouldn't mix asian and american traditional works on one body.

So I'm curious what other girls think on the subject, how they've dealt with multiple tattoos on the leg, and maybe any suggestions on how to find make seemingly incongruous tattoos exist in harmony.

TattooCollapse )
I got this tattoo back in October 2007. It's done by the only tattoo artist I will ever ever go to! Tim Beck at Freedom Ink in Peoria, IL.
I got a new job this year and saved almost 1,000 bucks to get a rib piece. However I need some help.
I am looking to get a phoenix, with the words either:

a) risen from the ashes
b)risen above the ashes
c) rising from the ashes
d) rising above the ashes

I am look for a design kinda like these:
Phoenix ideas!Collapse )

Question [Monday

Recently I posted what I had added to my ship outline and I decided for sure that I want to extend it down to the top of my thigh. I want to add some orange and yellow roses along with my sea theme but I'm scared that I it will look out of place and dumb. Any suggestions on how to incorporate the roses?


Edit:What I was thinking about doing was adding a Shark going after some overboard sailors with skeletons in the water and having sailors grave written in a banner at the bottom with the orange and yellow roses around it.

Question about extending my tattoo [Monday

I have about an inch or so of skin right above my butt that that we didn't outline and I want to extend my tattoo to cover that and to completely cover my butt. Any thoughts on what I could get that would tie along with what I have already? I'm kinda stumped because of the limited space. I would love to try to fit a mermaid and shark in somehow .What I have so far has a meaning beyond my love for traditional tattoos but this last little section won't have any hidden meaning beyond my love for the style.

Suggestions Needed [Friday

I posted the phoenix and auryn tattoo's a couple weeks ago. Well, I'm looking down the barrell of another couple hours of work and honestly I am uncertain as to how to finish the phoenix. Eventually she will be part of an elemental sleeve [I'm going to have fire and water on that arm and earth and air on the other] and I want it to have 'the sleeve look' if that makes any sense.

But I'm stuck. *sigh* I'm unsure how to color the breast of the bird and how finish the background. Is there anyone who can help me?

I'm including the original art work with this post along with the piece as it is now.

Oh btw, yes I know there are cracks in the ink of the wings. Believe it or not I had an allergic reaction to the dye! We are going over them again to both get rid of the cracks and enhance the gorgeous blues. And the black around the design is the last bit I had done, its still healing.

Thanks for the help!!

Hey everybody!!! So my friend and I went out and got our Anchorman lip tattoos this weekend. We decided to get PANDA WATCH!!! The artist said he loved our idea so much he did it for half the minimum, so we were pretty excited. In order to determine who would get PANDA and get WATCH! we had Craig write each down on a piece of paper and we picked them out of a cup. I got panda, which is obviously the superior word.

This is worse than the time the raccoon got into the copier.Collapse )

HIYA girls and lurkers,

I finally figured that by now i think i have a good amount of ink to actually be a girl with ink,
i know that you can join this community with just one tattoo but that i thought to be lame (just for me personally, no offense!)

anyhow, i'm from the netherlands but would rather immigrate to the states. i only have seven tattoos right now but will be adding more during the summer.

these are my tattoos in order of appearance clickCollapse )

auntie_gravity
hello ladies. i saw this magazine cover a year or two ago and saved the pic because it's hilarious and i need it on my skin. after this long of looking at it though, the cheese looks a little funny to me. it's an odd request, but do any of you have pics saved of taco tattoos that you could share with me? google images and flickr have not yielded any tattoos and the regular photos of tacos aren't anything i'm digging. i like the banner across the front too, and the traditional aesthetic it adds... i am not sure what i'd want it to say though.

anyway, if you all have any pics or thoughts to share, please do! also, any recommendations for shops/artists in austin would be great. thanks!!

So... I have a font question for you guys. This is my first time to post, but I do a lot of lurking :-) I love seeing all the pictures, ideas and questions everyone has on here. I just recently decided the idea for this tattoo, I was inspired by a graphic one of my friends put on her blog and I thought it was kind of perfect for how my life is and will continue to fall into place, which so far isn't the best but I have lots of hope for the future. The quote will be placed on my foot and will say "One Step At A Time" this is the picture

I got this done about 4 months ago, it's my first tattoo.

youve_lost
A lot of you may be wondering what is going on now with all of your suggestions.. So I figured I'd let you know your words of advice have not gone unanswered.

-I deleted all of the people from the community that no longer have ljs (why it doesn't delete them automatically when they leave livejournal is beyond me).
-I'm awaiting amyloo212 to pop on and help me out with a brand spanking new set of rules that are a little more clear on our expectations.
-I'm hoping one of my friends will be helping me with a new layout over the next few days.
-I've updated the tags. To suggest some I may have missed, please view here.
-I'm looking for someone to make us some new banners and icons. If you do, please post them here. I'm trying to find a good one to actually use on the user info page, so if you are handy with stuff like that and are willing to help, thanks in advance!!


There are still plenty of things that are being kicked around the mod community right now, but that is what I've accomplished thus far tonight. More to come this week.
