I usually think its best to get your tattooer to source great reference material.

Most of us (tattooers) spend a great deal of time/money/effort collecting source material or information for our tattoos.

Some of us even do it away from the internet.

But in the interests of not poo-pah-ing a discussion: Try searching the internet for reference material that ISNT a tattoo. Adding the term 'tattoo' to a google search is like initiating a shit-filter where it only delivers the worst possible images.

Good luck.

definitely agree stewart I found some cool pictures and drawings without the tattoo search. I guess I want to see what is obainable in the tattoo form. Seems tigers/panthers are easier(or make better tattoos) of the cat family. I dont have a tattooer locked in for it I suppose its too much to ask for you to fly to the US and tattoo me for a week or so ;)

Richard Stell is working in Dallas right now. Send an email. Drive down there. Get tattooed by Richard. Post a photo on this forum. Get lots of compliments. That is about all you need to do.

Stell's also going to be at the Austin Show in a few weeks I believe and West Texas later. Dallas would be closer for you though.

    • One of the good points about saniderm is covering the wound while it is still fresh and CLEAN. I don't know anyone who has put it on after 2-3 days but if you trap ANY dirt or bacteria under it you are literally laying an infection nest. I wouldn't do it.  Not sure where on your body the tattoo is, and 3 days into healing it shouldn't really still be oozing - but possibly cover it with a very clean t-shirt or similar and if it's still stuck to that in the morning then use warm water to disengage and then gently clean with antibacterial soap.   
    • No, it doesn't work like that.  And for what it's worth, in my eyes - it doesn't look "wrong". Aside from the link in the previous thread, I've never done any research on Keloid scarring. Check that subject out. If it bothers you that much, perhaps see a dermatologist. 
    • HE'S GOT THE BUUUUUUUGGGG!!! 😁 @minisoda not sure if you've let us know who the artist is yet, but feel free to share! check out their prior work and see what they're into. if they usually do traditional colors, they might prefer to stick to that aesthetic. if they do some crazy shit, they might be open to new ideas.  i think adding an olive branch in an open talon would look a bit strange. during your next shading and color session, bounce your addition and background ideas off your artist and see what they think. in the end, you're wearing it and they're doing it, so your two opinions count way more than us shmucks.🤓
