Back of thighs

Recommended Posts

I was discussing with @else earlier on today that i'd love to get a Pharohs horses tattoo.. she suggested back of thighs.. i'm loving that idea. I have pretty sturdy legs and they are long so theres lots of room length wise on the back of my thighs.. i've been looking for Prints for my new house and came across this...

Morrissey Tattoo Flash Print by ParlorTattooPrints on Etsy

I LOVE The Smiths and i love this print.. thinking perhaps it could be turned into something tattooable and may be an option for the back of the other thigh!

It looks to be of a simlar shape as most of the horses tattoos ive seen and could try and do it so both tattoos have a similar border if you get what i mean?

I'm waffling... opinions purlease :) (as in is it adaptable for a good tattoo.. i don't really care if you like the subject matter :p)

amnesia????

I don't remember that...

Oh well!

I think Pharaoh's horses on the back of the thigh would be great!

I don't have an opinion on the tattooability of the Morrissey flash... that's outside my scope of practice ;)

The conversation was with me, but yeah. Go for it!

haha flattery will get you everywhere. :) I like the morissey idea. Still, the pharoahs horses should be done first, that way you can see how you feel after it is done.

agreed...just need to decide who i want to do it now!

our very own @LosingShape does a fair few Morrissey tattoos too I believe...

@hollyjoybee Yes! I do Smiths/ Moz tattoos and my good friend Mike Adams does a few as well. If you're ever near the Portland area I would love to do a Moz/ Smiths tat on you! I've got 2 flash sheets based on the Hatful of Hollow album as well as a few other designs and do custom ones as well. You can check out my stuff on Instagram (@losingshape) or my website: losingshape.com. It links to my Tumblr as well as my Bigcartel shop.

In regards to that Moz painting you posted, if I were you, since you're in the UK you should just find a tattooer who's style you really like to draw something up for you. Everybody over at Rain City (Manchester), Cock-A- Snook (Newcastle), and all the fine shops in London - Frith Street, etc, etc would most-likely do a great job. I just don't trust people on Etsy who aren't tattooers who sell "Tattoo Prints" who don't actually know anything about the craft of tattooing much less designing a good tattoo. That doesn't mean it isn't a good reference for style and how you'd like your tattoo to be designed.

The Morissey painting looks very tattooable, but from what I read, the artist who painted it is not a tattooer. I'd suggest taking it to a tattooer and getting his or her professional opinion on how they'd tweak it.

Thank you so much for your advice! I wish i were closer.. it's tempting to wait until i can afford to come visit you! Had a good deek at your instagram and your works fantastic!

i hear what you're saying about Etsy and would defo only ever use it as a reference. My dad says i can't get morrisey tattooed on me with fluttery eyelashes haha!

cheers again for your advice and reply :) x

    • Everyone likes what they like, but true Japanese tattooing probably has had more influence on modern tattooing than anything else... American traditional a close second.  Janky kanji is not what it's about.
    • Look, tattoos are an adult thing.  Be an adult, decide what YOU think and what YOU think should be done about it and stop looking for someone to agree with you. You might not post to this site again, but you know you'll lurk and think pissy things about all of us, lol.
    • Bless your heart. I bet you'll be back when it looks even worse because no reputable tattoo artist would agree with you. You're not a very good listening, are you? Also? BYEEEEEEEEEE.
