Awkward empty space between chest and shoulder and lack of creativity.

Recommended Posts

So this shoulder "patch" of flash and chest piece is driving me nuts; more specifically, the negative space in between them seems awkward. I have to keep it quarter sleeve for professional reasons. I'm kind of getting the itch to ask an artist (yes I have one in mind)... to add new work to the space and make something cohesive and solid. Like I said in my intro thread: zero artistic creativity. I would be relying and completely dependent on the artist to tie my interests/desire together. I don't know how ok this is. Any thoughts or advice on would be appreciated... Sorry for the crappy mirror photo.

Maybe you could cap your shoulder with some clouds, maybe throw some lightning in there, or a spider web... Flowers are always nice too. Just a couple ideas I got from looking at the space.

You don't have to have the artistic skill as the one receiving the tattoo, that's the amazing thing about tattoos! Have you shown this picture to the artist who you're interested in? I'm sure they can come up with some good ideas.

You seem to have an eye for traditional, cltattooing gave a great list.

things that look good in that space:

flowers

spiderwebs

girl head

compass

tudor rose

mace on a chain going over the shoulders and through the neck

butterfly

spider

scorpion

snake

beetle

GREAT list, thank you!

I guess I really wanted some other tattoo folks opinions. Seeing it every day, it's nice to get some outside perspective.

Actually, I think I had a stroke of inspiration this morning. Being born and raised in backwoods Florida, hear me out:

Traditional panther head, face on, but Florida Panther instead of the traditional black. Instead of daggers, Florida paleo-Indian spears/shell axe.
