OutOfIdeas

29 posts in this topic

Hey, im goin on a trip this weekend, and ill probably pick up a new tattoo as ill be in a different city and dont have much access to good shops here. I think im just gonna walk in and come up with something on the spot (assuming i can even find a good artist to do a walk in) but I thought it might be cool to hear some random ideas from you folks, as ive seen some pretty interesting ideas posted on here in various threads.

I was kinda wanting something on the collarbone, maybe a banner along the collarbone with an image on each side, on the front shoulder/chest area, but i could easily just get something random on my upper arm, so any ideas are welcome, lets see what you can come up with, and if you have an awesome idea, i might just turn it into a tattoo! Thanks

Watching the latest Gypsy Gentleman has me psyched on a one-shot /Japanese piece ,which would perfectly suit your itinerary .This tattoo by Rico Daruma provides a superb example of placement ... I'll leave the rest up to you.

@kylegrey - off topic but Rico is doing my homie Stooks' back and its beyond ridiculous. His wife (who's name escapes me right now) is possibly even better, she just isn't on the interwebs much.

Back on topic - where are you headed? Might help people being able to point you in the direction of some good shops OR check Tattoo Shop Reviews | Last Sparrow Tattoo

All good ideas, but I'm not that into Japanese tattoos, I like the looks a lot but it's just not for me, and most of the other ideas mentioned I already have tattoos of, the sun and rejoice idea is awesome though, two scoops of joy! Haha

Cool-so tell us what you already have so we can narrow it down?

In the 1001 Tattoos book, I'm always fascinated by the guys with multiple tattoos of the same image/icon (usually eagles). I like birds and all (mainly because you can interpret wings alot of different ways), but I'd rather break it up a bit.

I have a skeleton, anchor, swallow, rose, skull, dagger, lady head, and some initials. Not really into animal heads (again I like them but not for me)

Just wondering, since I just joined in March... have any of these types of threads actually ever led to the person asking selecting a suggested tattoo idea?

I've said it before, and i'll say it again - you can't go wrong with a "Wu-Tang Buffalo with laser beam eyes". Here's one that was prepared earlier

(I have no idea who did this originally, I came across it awhile ago in all its awesomeness)

Mine did. I don't know if anyone suggested a skull, but someone mentioned that I should go with my gut and not over-think it so I got a nice skull with some flowers.

Anyhow... this thread made me think of this video of Troy Denning....hipster-mustachioed-old timey-dude

I guess if your that open minded about if you find a shop you feel good about, or artist just ask them what they like to do and show them the area. I bet he/she would like that.

    • Thank you for this reply it related to me alot.  Your right i rushed into the tattoo beforehand anyway. I dont even like tattoos, and really wasnt in the right state of mind but someone said get one.. 2 days later I did. The night before i got it i was drawing up designs and thinking but me and my mum never had a great relationship and my mind was frazzled so i went with text as couldnt think of design/quote or something. Was even asking people for ideas. So I agree it doesn't do justice thats probably one of the reasons I hate it. Now thinking about her hobbies hairdressing and we had a dog which was a British bulldog but wouldnt want that on my arm tbh. I too am in a tattoo rut i absolutely hate it and Like you long sleeves do look like summers choice.  Regarding laser treatment, when did you get this done? what are the results? and did you have any colour? Thanks for your reply
    • @Ciel How have you care for your other tattoos? Agree with @Howie - talk to you artist. IMO, no to antibacterial ointment AND coconut oil on a fresh tattoo with a re-wrap. Your tattoo needs to heal and breathe. Tegaderm is fantastic for this type is scenario!
    • Session number seven rolled around this Saturday. @bongsau You were definitely right, "in for a whooping" to say the least. Only made it through 2 and a half hours, but still managed to tear up an insane amount of skin. It's sessions like this that definitely teach you about your body and ability to tolerate pain. Felt pretty discouraged immediately after the session, but I'm still stoked on the level of progress. Can't wait to see the patterning brighten up as the blue settles over top. 28.5 hours here.
