Looking for inspiration to finish up my tattoo


Recommended Posts

I'm three sessions in on my second tattoo. Here's what it looks like today (beer and clouds done just last night)--click the pix to biggify:

I'm totally in love with it. I can't get over how amazing the beer glass and octopus look.

I also dig the way the clouds frame the ship, sort of like the twisted rope in many nautical tattoos. Where I need the inspiration is finishing it off. My artist feels like it needs something to frame the lower part. He's thinking lightning bolts like this, but thinner:

But I'm honestly not feeling that. I'm having trouble envisioning anything down there that wouldn't detract from the main image, which I want to be the star of the show.

Any reference pix or suggestions to get the creative juices flowing would be much appreciated.
