My daughter's design - a Mother's Day present!

Recommended Posts

I have 3 daughters (22 yrs old and 14-yr-old twins) and for Mother's Day today they gave me money towards my floral shoulder piece planned for August.

One of the twins is an artist herself and drew this bee for me, since bees are significant in my life, and she knew I was thinking about another bee tattoo (separate from the shoulder piece). She knew I wanted something bold, simple and stylized, and though this is pretty dang tribal, I'm impressed and like the design. She drew it up while killing time after a history test last week. I'll talk to my tattoo artist and decide the best place for it to go.

Cool, it'll have a lot of sentimental value to you. I came up with the design for one of my dad's tattoos (the artist redrew it a little, but still my concept!) and it's awesome to know he's wearing something I drew for him.

Yeah, this is really the thing about it. She is very pleased to know that I'd put this on my body permanently. It helps a lot that it is a decent design - WHEW! I warned her that the artist might tweak it a little and she's cool with that.

She's starting at an arts high school in the fall (the same one her older sister went to, and the same one that Rayvon Owen from American Idol went to) and is focusing on visual arts.

@Synesthesia, what was the design you did for your dad?

I don't have any pictures on hand, but it was a shark and anchor design to commemorate his time in the Navy and the Navy Reserves. Someday I'll have to get pictures of his tattoos to remember them before they get old and blurry. :p

    • 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.
