What are some good ideas for a tattoo? I was thinking of getting two half sleeves but I'm lacking cool ideas. Also if you find a cool tattoo that you like post it. Pic is of a tattoo I like.
You should get a tattoo of something you think of yourself. They're permanent and I'm pretty sure some anonymous person on the internet isn't gonna tell you what you actually want for the rest of your life.
colonel hogan you know herr kommandant would not allow such things... maybe one...
I was 28 when I got my first tattoo. It was to mark a major accomplishment and turning point in my life. Since then I've sat for close to 20 hours, all personally significant work, all done and planned with the same artist. If you want a tattoo that badly and aren't sure what, find an artist who's work you like and go talk to them.
I like the tattoo in my pic and could see getting something like a beach scene. but I don't know the artist name. I feel like if I brought in a picture of it to a different artist and said here do this it wouldn't turn out the same or to my liking also it would probably be rude.
What you do is find someone who specializes in that type of art. Then you tell him I'd like something similar to this. He would say okay then put his own spin on it and take any suggestions or input from you, and tell you yeah it'll work or whatnot. If he's a good artist he'll be easy to work with and be a good judge on what will look good. Some tattoo artists will literally copy things for you and some will want to give it their "artistic touch". Either way they won't be offended. Get ready to spend a lot. At least $100-150/hour for someone who is pretty decent. Upwards of $200/hour for someone really good. Then it's going to take you anywhere from 6-10 hours probably. Depending on your schedule and your tolerance to pain. These are just rough estimates.
yeah id want to find someone who is really good. my pain tolerance is pretty good so shouldn't be any problems there. I think I have enough money saved I could afford it. And I was thinking just half sleeves like in the picture so I don't know how long that would take per sleeve. Do half sleeves usually take around 6-10 hours per sleeve?
Get a tattoo of a bic lighter on your penis, but make it about 25% smaller than life, so your dick looks substantially bigger than it is in comparison. Get the tattoo artist to write "BIC LIGHTER ACTUAL SIZE" next to it to trick people and enhance the illusion.
The expensive ones that costs like $1,000+. You obviously get what you pay for and the detail and color shows.
The rest are shit. There's a few cheaper ones that had some thought go into them and were done pretty well and I'd say they aren't that bad. But lots of people just get tattoos without researching or putting up the cash to get something good.
My half-sleve and chest panel was around 12 hours over 4 sittings, but it was a LOT of detail and a lot of color shading. First sitting was all line work, second was black shading, third and fourth were color work. You probably won't want to do much more than 3-4 hours in a sitting regardless of pain tolerance because the skin can only take so much trauma. My guy charges $125 and hour and its traditional to tip, but he always under charged me on time and never clocked anything unless the gun was in his hand. Even placement, sketching, and free handing (instead of using the purple template, most of his template was done with sharpies so he could control the lines and contour along musculature) he didn't charge me for.
On one arm I have a half-sleeve: Paimon's seal and a large koi swimming against waves and smoke that flows into a peony chest panel. My other arm is a detailed, highly realistic peacock and a septagram inside an ouroboros.
