How much is to much,

Recommended Posts

How much is to much for bringing in pictures to make one tattoo? I ask since I don't, and my family doesn't have a picture of my fathers favorite car he used to own. I'm going to have it tattooed on my arm, I've found about 5 different pictures that pieced together in a drawing, that should make it close to what the car looked like.

Reason it's harder is it was a custom classic car my father fixed up. It was a 1967 Pontiac bonneville convertible, had fins on the rear, custom paint job, and it was his "baby".

To compliment the tattoo on the top of the arm, I'm trying to find and think of a classic pin up girl. (By arm I mean closest to my wrists)

Thoughts accepted and more,

Thanks everyone,

Thornton8000

That kind of depends on what your artist knows about the car and how he/she wants to frame it up, I'd think.

I used to have a '66 Catalina. Great car, but I lost most of the pictures of it during Katrina.

There are alot of gearheads that do tattoos. I would bring in all your examples and discuss it with the artist. This is permanent so your artist should be willing to take the time to go over all of the details before starting.

Agreed, and between Bing images and Google images you should be able to come up a picture or two that's nearly identical.

Nowadays nearly every make and model of car has its own dedicated forum, these are great for sourcing pictures.

I actually have a car tattoo and joined the forum because I think it looks out of place all alone. I either want to add to it or cover it up. I would add a picture but can't do so for a week

    • 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.
