Stomach tattoos

Recommended Posts

I want to do my stomach soon, love the pharaoh's horses but went for a smaller version on my arm as I don't think I have enough room under my chest piece to do it justice!

I have a black and gray gypsy girl on my chest and still don't know what to put on my stomach. Eagle? haha

I am getting my stomach covered by the end of the year. Although I can't nail down whether it is going to be the classic Sailor Jerry tigercat, a conquering lion or a sloppy-faced pug. Suggestions? (leaning towards the psychedlic tiger head, pretty timeless).

@chrisnoluck funny, I've got a dagger in a similar spot and am pretty set on doing a pharaoh's horses design on my stomach.. if I can man up and actually do it.

do it! such a great design. i need to figure out something for around my belly button and the bottom of my stomach but i don't even want to think about feeling that again anytime soon.

I know that I am reviving an OLD post, but I couldn't really find anything else on the subject.

I am female, and although I don't care for the underboob thing (for me), I recently saw a picture that opened up a whole new world of possibilities in my mind(attached for illustrative purposes). The subject matter and/or quality of work isn't what struck me, but placement! 

I never even thought of doing of front piece that way - placed under the breast line, but continuing as one cohesive piece past the waistline, similar to a back piece.  Don't ask me why this never occurred to me, but it hadn't. 

However, this is the ONLY photo of this sort of placement and size of work that I have found.  Anyone else have any experience, sightings, etc.?  What is your opinion?

I have lots of tigers so I really like yours! 

I guess I just don't see many pictures of women with large scale stomach tattoos. It's always those little underboob things or something across the bottom.

It's a nice large open space....I need to start planning something apparently :)

Going to do my chest and stomach next year. Haha I remember asking Scott Sylvia what getting the stomach done is like and he looked up and just said, "It's a whole other ball game."

At least with Scott, he's fast as hell. I've been weighing the options for two of my favorite artists that I've had work on me a lot and it's tough.

Scott - Heavier handed, but fast as hell. 

Grez - Very gentle, but very meticulous and much slower.

I've been kicking it around for almost two years and keep doing other things because I can't decide how to approach the unfun nature of this...I got my chest done when I was about 22, so it's been a while. It definitely sucked, but over the time, the memory of it has dulled a bit. Not looking forward to stomach.

 

and also, @wildcat, Bailey Moffatt recently posted an Instagram pic of her front (while walking her dog), and it is awesome.

@suburbanxcore Thanks!  A perfect example of what I'm picturing in my head. Y'all are kinda scaring me about how bad that area is going to be, but I'm trying to convince myself that the numb areas I have as a result of two C-sections will help me....please let me have that one self-delusion :)

:14_relaxed: don't let your thoughts get out of control from reading here,

everyone told me my ribs,knees,elbows,wrists,hands,fingers were going to be brutal,and to be honest none of these spots I have had done were as bad as I had built them up to be in my head,

I still preach that pain is mostly in your head,as humans we have a really good ability to overcome pain through mental focus,

it works for me,and I find it a welcome challenge to work on when getting tattooed,I have come to embrace it.

it starts with what you are doing now,mental preparation ,to preparing the day and night before,and through the morning of the tattoo up to and during the tattoo,it's an entire experience that I embrace and practice.

here is my "pre-tattoo agenda"

mentally prepare yourself in the weeks leading up to the tattoo

sleep good and don't drink alcohol the night before (or the day of),

pre-hydrate the day before and day of and while being tattooed,(water or Gatorade) 

eat a good non greasy healthy meal right before getting tattooed,

bring candy (I bring M&M's and Skittles) to eat during the tattoo(the sugar will keep you from passing out),I also bring a banana,beef jerky, and a few cold bottles of water in a little ice chest(no artist has ever minded me doing this,as a matter of fact they have liked it). 

bring your phone for pics but mute the ringer and all sounds,

keeping up body sugars,potassium,and electrolytes will help to keep you from passing out , 

get yourself mentally in a good place.in the days leading up to and during the tattoo.

ask for a few 5 min breaks to stand up ,stretch,and get the kinks out.

this all helps me have a better overall tattoo experience,and the artist will appreciate it too.

      Heading to Oakland, California to see Freddy Corbin at Temple tattoo to get inked for our 25th wedding anniversary.
      Appointment is noon, Tuesday.
      Daniel Higgs did the original wedding tattoos at Realistic Studio in San Francisco and Freddy was in the shop watching and making comments while he was doing us. Daniel doesn't do tattoos any more. So our first choice is Freddy to keep spiritual continuity.
      The wife and me are getting a "25-XXV added somewhere . I am also getting a "Dragon" mixed into it...
      I'll keep you up to date.
      :cool:

      hi all this is my introduction thread. im a huge enthusiast in tattoos and i love american traditional style hence the name. im going to school to major in art education but i all types of art. the reason i titled this thread trad. flash help is because i drew an american traditional design and would like some input on it. i had planned to get it on my left leg but placement is still up in the air and i dont know if i should keep all of the elements. i also want to get a homeward bound ship on the same leg in the future so i need to plan around that. constructive criticism is greatly appreciated. thanks in advance guys

      Hello! So this is my second intro post, but ive taken my original idea and reworked it, Just would like some feedback. Basically, the body drawings are rough sketches, of course the feathers would be done better and the little girl would look more like the one in the pic with the long quote. The quote ive shortened to "happiness is not the absence of struggle". There's a ton of meaning behind every inch of this design and I could explain it, but really im just looking for feedback on the tattoo aesthetically. Im planning on keeping it all black ink, but if you think colour would look nice somewhere, let me know! This will be my first tattoo so all the feedback is appreciated greatly. Keep in mind these are rough sketches and my artist (who I met today!! :D ) will be drawing it out more nicely. Im likely going to have to break it up into pieces and do it over the course of the year because of cost, opposed to squeezing it into a month or two. As far as pricing goes, what do you guys think? I just want to get a few more quotes before I commit to this shop. Thanks a million!
      cant get photos to upload on post.. check out my gallery :)

      Recently I've had a bunch of army people telling me about new changes in their policy on tattoos.
      Between what they have told me & some googling tells me that 670-1 will now prohibit any visible tattoos when wearing a uniform, which is different than a few years ago when they allowed neck & back of hand tattoos. Any new recruits will be barred, and people that are already grandfathered in will be prohibited from re-enlisting, unless they are removed. What I haven't been solid answer on yet is if the army will be paying for removal. Sleeves are also prohibited. That one is REALLY gonna screw me. I might not even be able to finish ones I have in progress, both on in-towners and clients that are currently deployed. Stuff I'm excited to do. Every shop in town is gonna take a huge blow because of this. Even besides how it affects me it sucks to see these people get screwed like that.
      Upcoming changes to AR 670-1
      This next thing is where is gets tricky; someone came in to see about getting a really well done jerry design of a topless geisha & dragon on his forearm covered up, much to his dismay. Because it makes naughty thoughts or something like that. Kid tells me that anything consided sexually explicit or creates 'impure thoughts'. I wish I could remember the phrasing he used. Thing is, who decides what is considered 'impure'? He was saying he wasnt even allowed to put a bikini on the geisha.
      Do we have any army people here? If so, can you give me the specifics on this?
