War Club idea for my right arm..

Liz Stitch Ellis

Recommended Posts

We've been holding off finishing my right arm because we weren't sure if I was going to be starting anything on the inside of that arm. (as well we had to finish the banshee..)

But in the mean while I was told to sketch something if an idea should pop into my head. I found this war club doing some research on my heritage and used some old roses I sketched a long time ago..

This is what I came up with, but I don't know how I feel about the roses. My question is there something else you guys would suggest? I don't know how well it would flow with the rest of my arm.


This is what is already completed on my arm..

The concept kind of reminds me of this one by Chris Smith (Deluxe Tattoo, Chicago) -


If you're not sure about the roses I guess scrollwork or something is another option.

If it's not too personal, did you pick the idea of a war-club because you want a native american element, or is there an even more specific reason?

@RoryQ I like that, kinda cool. I'm going with the war club because I'm half mohawk. And the rest of the arm has that... "nature" I guess feel to it. *shrug* I like the idea of the war club in flowers kinda like a "war among peace" thing. So yeah I guess it was more because I wanted the native american element with out going with the traditional lady head with a head dress on, or a dream catcher.

Never considered scroll work, if I were to go with scroll work I'm not to sure what i'd have it say..

Regarding flow, the same artist will be doing it? If yes, then yes - it should flow nicely.

Absolutely, I've pretty much given that woman my entire canvas with the exception of my right leg, her apprentice has that because she loves cartoons!
