Need ideas for another tattoo to go with the one I currently have.

Recommended Posts

Hey all! So this is going to be my second tattoo. I absolutely love my first one, my artist did an amazing job. It's a bald eagle on my right shoulder and now I'm looking to expand on it down my arm. Thing is I am not to sure what would go well or compliment the eagle. I'll take any and all suggestions you may have. Thanks in advance!!!

(sorry one was taken in the mirror so they look reflected xD)

That thing is crying out for some background. Maybe some light gray mountains, clouds, trees, or something else to suggest distance and add depth. Other woodsy animals like wolves, bears, deer, etc could work. Maybe down lower on your arm, you could add a lake like the eagle is swooping down to catch a fish.

Alternately, you could do the patriotic route.

That would be awesome with a mountian background

    • Hi Lilu can I ask what your tattoo looks like now? I have a similar problem with my new tat
    • Hi everyone, I got a floral tat on my arm exactly a week ago. The little turtle in the middle has been there for a few years, the flowers around it are new. Fresh out of the chair the shading was light and perfect. But three days later I noticed the three flowers closer to my elbow were getting darker - specifically that the shading was getting darker. The flowers closer to my wrist are not so bad. A week on now and the dark shading in the petals seems to have gotten slightly darker still. Is this normal? Could it be a subtle form of blow out? I really liked the lighter shading and I feel like it is now too dark, I'm hoping after everything has peeled it will look lighter again. Photos attached I know we won't fully know what it looks like until it's healed in 4-6 weeks but any help in the meantime would be hugely appreciated, especially if anyone thinks this is blow out or has similar experience with shading that seemed to get darker instead of lighter Ps I'm in Sydney Australia where covid restrictions have lifted for tattoo parlours
