What to do with this empty spot?

Recommended Posts

Hello people of Azeroth. I mean sparrowtattooforum. I need some advice on what to do with this empy spot in my tattoo design.

I have on my right and left chest an empty spot in the bag. My artist drew a storm in the bag but said it was to crowded/busy with the hair next to it.

He said to think of something bigger. Since this is japanese themed id like to keep it that way in meaning of symbolism/picture wise.

What i've come up with so far myself is maybe the head of a dragon on my right chest, that it looks like there is a dragon in the bag. And maybe the tail on the left. However im not sure if the spot is big enough. Heres the picture

I think @SStu's idea is great. One of my all time favorite tattoos is this warrior lady by Chris O'Donnell; the detail is absolutely exquisite.

Stewart has also been cranking out amazing patterned "fabrics" in some of his backpieces lately, as well.

To that extent, you could also try to find pictures of antique Japanese textiles.

@sourpussoctopus ohhh i see now. Yes, this is perfect. The empty space was just to big not to do anything with it.

Ps, when i googled patterned drapery all i got was images of curtains :p

pps, thank you both

@rufio, exactly as @Manu Manu & @sourpussoctopus are saying. Here's one of his unfinished examples: http://iconosquare.com/viewer.php#/detail/1196450303084848639_1221769600

    • 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.
