Looking for some inspo to cover scars on my forearm so sleeves are appreciated.
that tattoo looks like shit
99% of tattoos look like shit but that looks like a bunch of shit
what do you guys think about novelty holocaust tattoos? i think they would be pretty /fa/
What do you think of ogham tattoos? Was considering get pic related done.
There's this really cool local artist who does a lot of splash watercolour tattoos so I was considering having blue splashed in the background or something ?
>Don't tattoo something that looks cool
tattoos that only have "meaning" are shit, tattoos with a genuine meaning are alright. tatts that simply look cool are cool. then theres ones the look aesthetic and have a genuine meaning which are what most most people with ink should strive for. theres nothing wrong with ones that look good for the sake of looking good
I've never understood the logic behind covering scars with tattoos to hide them. to start with, when scars get old enough they should pretty much blend with your skin tone although they will be raised. that's how mine are. if a person was looking at your arm in passing they probably wouldn't notice.
let me put this piece of art over the scars that many people throughout the entire course of my life are gonna want to examine closely, thus looking directly at the area which has something i wish to hide
unless you're just putting something there because you want it there, but then why mention the scars in the first place
u mean like this senpai?
check out his other stuff
I understand completely.
I got it when I thought that I didn't want any tattoos in the area, but lo and behold I now want to get quite a few. Having trouble thinking of how to incorporate it all
What's the opposite of real?
Henna or something else that's temporary. He said they're not real in an interview, and it takes a long time for them to all be applied before a show or other gig.
maybe if your name was Elenore and you were the love of my life and years after I get the tattoo you break my heart when you just disappear only leaving a note leaving me to drink and smoke while nobody else I meet fills the hole you left. Even more likely if you paint.
thats just me though
Just get the line work done, it'll look minimalistic
If it was all done in the same style and had a cohesive look to it it'd look great. Make sure to plan it out a little.
Too dark of tones all over, needs more contrast imo. Maybe go again in a bit and ask for some white to be added in areas.
Scars are better than a bad tattoo DESU
Got my first one about 3 weeks ago
guys i'm seriously thinking of getting one like pic related.
I was thinking it could be the people around my arm but it would require to have huge arms for it to look good and I don't feel like working out for the rest of my life so do you have any recommendation for places??
Also, do you like the idea?
la llave es un desarmador electrico
p cool pic tho famm
these are my shitty tattoos
really want a simple cicada that's black with some shading but not sure where I want to get it because I only want to get tattoos on my one arm
get the fuck off this board holy shit
Ohpee ignore these fucking idiots in this thread.
First thing is have you tried mederma? It's a scar serum/ ointment that works very well on lightening and softening scars.
If you tried that and it's not doing what you need it to, a tattoo is a great way to cover scars.
First thing to consider when getting a tattoo is the subject matter. Do you want it cause it's a beautiful art peice or is it a momento or a tribute? There's absolutely nothing wrong with getting a tattoo cause it looks cool and you like the art just remember your tast may change and you'll hate how much of a faggot you'll look like with some dumb ass hipster tattoo. Make sure it's a style that you actually like and something you don't mind looking at all the time basically until your either blind from lurking in the bright light of your computer monitor in your parents basement or die from binge drinking Mnt. Dew
I have tons of tattoos. Some are memories of a good time some are totems and tributes to loved ones who have passed. I have STARWARS tattoos and even anime tattoos. They are permanent and love that just don't be a faggot and get something you actually like not some trendy bullshit.
what about something like this? I think it looks cool, but it seems kinda girly/millennial trash.
Need some advice on what to do to make these tattoos look better, especially the tree one. I got these when I was about 16, and I'm not happy with them. Is a cover up even possible? If not, what suggestions do you have to tweak them?
I agree. When I was choosing these, therewas really only a month process between deciding to get a tattoo, finding a tattoo, and actually getting it. I was 16 and went to the closest shop that would tattoo someone underage, so obviously got shitty quality. Then I got the 'M' (which is a scorpio symbol) about a month later. The scorpio symbol has a lot of meaning to me but I think the placement could have been a lot different.
wtc shirt and gorgeously slender, pale arms?
but i knew you'd get so much h8 for those fanboi tats like even though you disclaimed that you know they're bad
sorry but at least you still look fly to non-4channers
the tree is stylish as it is rn, with NO SHADING, and the scorpio sign is just your 16 year-old wannabee scene kid making sure they're always remembered
if i were you i'd look into getting the M removed, or covered or something
I can't stop smiling at this.
Pretty sweet, looks very classical/contemporary.
I don't know what that is but it looks metal as fuck.
Reminds me of native american art, pretty rad.
Fuuuck bruuuuh that's gorgeous.
>Are you jewish?
They'll call you out for it
>Are you ready to hear all the time "lol, FMA:B/NGE is the best anime ever amirite?"
Because that's what most of the people will think it is
Wanted to make something like this for my Gosha fits.
How do people decide what to get tattooed? Do they imagine the design or pick one out that's already done?
For most people it starts out with an idea that sits on the back burner for a few months, and eventually they either sketch up what they want or go to a legitimate tattoo artist to draft up some designs, then they get it done.
Many of the posters here, however, don't put nearly as mush time or thought into their tattoos, or they follow a passing fad, which results in a lot of the cringeworthy stuff you see in this thread.
Just think of what you want and what you wont regret In a few years then think of the placement and how it will look on you( alot if imagining yourself in 3d view and seeing it in different angles or drawing it with a pen nd see how it looks)thats pretty much it, thinking if gettings this I know it unoriginal bit I really like the look thinking of getting this but smaller znd more trees all around my ankle about half way up mu shin iv got others on my opposite foot so it would fit on me pretty good when shoeless Pic related
ive been planning out a sleeve for several years. its gonna be expensive so im trying to make it good. so far id say im about 3/4 done (its only a 3/4 length sleeve btw) and it looks awesome in my mind and everything has deep meaning to me. mostly related to my father. im trying to think of some things to ad for my mum since i love her too but im struggling.
That tree is dope af especially with the square around just go to a PROFESSIONAL and ask to get it fixed or retouched it looks like that one guy down the street who owns a tattoo machine he bought of amazon did it(we all know one)you might have to pay $100 but it will look way better.. Pic related is what I mean like actual detail not 6th grade doodling
Idk know, like the beach, shoeless activities, after I fuck you and we just lay naked nd I walk SHOELESS to the fridge to get a nice glass of O.J.. Ehh. Ehh how bout it OP?.. Pic unrelated but daamn that nigga slick af
I (male )also want to cover up some (surgery) scars but haven't found anything close to that area for men.
Please help with ideas/photos
i really wanna get some pieces involving A Durer's "Apocalypse" wood cuts.
his nshit is GOAT but would using it as tattoo material be too pleb? I feel like a lot of people get his art without knowing who he is. And his famous "Praying Hands" would be tight too but now it's on that fucking Drake album so that's pretty much a death sentence to get.
This month im going to do the durer polyhedron from melencolia on my forearm. Durer art is wonderful doesnt matter who use it. Go for the stars or the god image or look more symbols on the other engravings of the apocalipsis
Durer is really popular in linework tattoos, people forget there's plenty of other artists work to look at. Have a look around online "woodcut" "etching", personally I like hans holbein the younger
>I'm going to a Dharma wheel tattoo
>because it looks cool
Anon, please don't get a tattoo just because it looks cool. Get something meaningful. If you can't think of anything meaningful, wait until you've lived long enough to have meaningful ideas. Or don't. Just my advice.
Here is a shitty pic of one of mine. It's from a Don Kenn drawing.
female ghost from a Kunisada print and several namakubi (several heads), going in for some shading and color at the end of the month.
How faggoty would a full back tattoo of an anatomical diagram of a spine be? Or an atamocial diagram of the the hands on the hands? Both have meaning to me, but they also sound kinda gay. Plus I don't want to get kicked out of the army.
Ok I have a question. I'm like very skinny and I just don't know how big must tattoos on my body be. Big or small, same about detalization. And should I learn about styles or not, I have a couple of pictures I found long time ago and had my friend to draw with some minor changes and I want all to be black and white but there's dot work, line work and all that, how should I choose between them?
It feel weird that a random person thinks about getting the same symbol. Im curious about why do you want the durer polyhedron as a tattoo
for a few reasons, mainly beccause it looks cool though. also dürer is from my hometown and after looking through most of his stuff the symbols appealed to me the most.the simple cube with nobody knowing his real meaning is a pretty cool thing. what was your reason?
hey /fa/, I really like the work of Hassan Massoudy and was thinking about getting some of it as a tattoo. The only thing is, I can't narrow down which one would work best as a tattoo. Link to my drive below, will be dumping pix tho.
amazing! thanks guys. i follow this artist on instagram mahyatkiyan(pic related).
question: i, as a white swede, can i tattoo these kinds of symbols?
I like melencolia and their interpretations (intellectual, artistic, geometrical, scientific, divinity, etc) and of all their symbols i like the polyhedron because looks cool and for me his misterious contains all the interpretations. Also my parents named me alberto because of alberto durero.
and i have these, which i just recently got. protip: if you're going to get really thick, bold black art, just make sure the person specializes in blackwork/traditional, because often, they know what ink to use (i didn't think it mattered, but the flower and a few others i got from that guy look dark dark dark black and it's to the point where i'm going to have him go over my existing ones), which needles, etc to make the boldest, longest lasting color. anyway, more of mine.
Trust me when I say that this WON'T look good as a tattoo. Think about it for a second, on paper it looks good because of the neat curve and the texture, but on skin you can't recreate the texture and the curve will move with your body and look crooked all the time. If you like this sort of stuff look up Amanda Watchob tho.
Is there any way to incorporate initials without looking like a mid 20s white bitch?
>pic kind of unrelated, style of art I would really like to get a tattoo of
getting this down my back soon
Homejob tattoos and prison tattoos. Not even kidding.
Most shit outside of these looks tacky. My left arm is covered in prison tats like nordic runes and memorials for people.
If you need to go to a tattoo parlour to get something decent then just don't, because at this rate you'll be more "unique" for NOT having tattoos.
