January 2013 Tattoo of the Month Contest

Recommended Posts

A new year and a new month so that means it's time for the monthly contest.....take all that holiday money, get a good tattoo and post it up here to win a Scott Sylvia T-shirt!! Maybe the shirt will motivate people to get better tattoos........or just the insight you'll have a good looking tattoo years down the line. A cheap tattoo is just that so shopping around for the lowest price will probably give you a tattoo with the lowest likes.....

Hopefully we get enough done to see the direction of the project. We have 12 hours of tattoo time scheduled at the end of the month. I would post the study for my back on here, but I need to ask Kore if he is ok with that first.

I think this should be for finished work, not ongoing. I plan on posting the final shot of my back-piece for judgement when it's 100% complete. Don't think it's a tattoo contest if we have unfinished tattoos. No disrespect to you @Brock Varty . Aren't you looking to show off and be judged on the finished project? Show the beauty that the artist created, and commitment to the tattoo! The appointments, expense and of course handling the pain. The journey is shared on "Latest Tattoo Lowdown". That's where we all compliment and look forward to the finished project!!!!

I have to wait until February when Mr. Flatmo finishes my dragon.

I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product!

I can't tell you how much it's killing me to wait until February to finish the piece. Then it will be time to start the tiger and the anticipation will be killing me again.

Did you ask to mix the maple leaves and the mums?

To answer your question: it evolved from an outer arm tattoo which looked incomplete until we made it a half-sleeve over about five sessions in total. My understanding is that it's okay to mix maple and mums because they both bloom in autumn months -- unlike, say, mixing cherry blossoms with peonies. What I wanted was a "traditional" Japanese tattoo filtered through Kim's unique style -- and that's exactly what I got, so I'm super stoked on it. Next up, I'm hoping for a dragon by Seth Wood on my other arm -- but I've got to start saving my pennies!

I really like the piece you have from Kim. I think you got exactly what you wanted. As far as my understanding goes, you can only mix flowers in the same season...even then it is probably taboo in a strictly traditional sense.

Anyways, this isn't the place for traditional Japanese arguments. I really really like your arm...CONGRATS!

I love Seth, he rules so much.

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
