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

    • Oh. And your tattoos definitely cute. I love the story behind it. 
    • This post reminded me of a comment my family friend made about my father in-law. He made some comment about how he didn’t like women with tattoos and she was offended (she has a couple of small ones) and said “oh so you don’t like my tattoo” and he’s like no. I don’t like tattoos on women (he can be a bit of a knob from time to time). And my response was pretty much what most people have said... “if you got it for others to look at, rather than yourself, you probably got it for the wrong reasons”.    I have four personally, half sleeve, shoulder, collar bone and lower back. Two of mine are pretty decent in size and honestly, I get nice comments from people, I get snarls from others.. mostly older women that view tattoos a little differently but ALL of mine have sentimental meanings and I could give a shit less what people think because they mean something to me.    At the end of the day, regardless of what anyone thinks, you’ve got to be comfortable in your own skin, covered in tattoos or not. 🤷🏻‍♀️
