What do you think of this design?

Recommended Posts

Just saw this on Gary Gerhardt's instagram. I think it's pretty cool/cute. I've always been drawn to the South West and cacti, as dangerous as they are. 

Where would you recommend having it tattooed? I was thinking it might look good on the inside of my heel/ankle area. This is hypothetical of course.

I think you and Gary would be able to figure that out. 

well, yeah. mainly just looking for opinions. depending on the feedback, i may or may not give him a call.

it's a cool design for sure,you don't want that exact tattoo unless he hasn't done that as a tattoo yet,but it's a good base to show what you want.

a good rule is "go big or go home",anyway,go bigger than you think you want,you will appreciate it later.

on "  inside of my heel/ankle area " IMO it would be too small.

I have a similar design (conceptually) with potted thai peppers on the outside of my calf. I'm happy with the placement but of course it will depend on how big you want the tattoo and how big you are. Could make for a pretty cool tattoo.

Get it if you like tattoos in this style. It's sweet and funny, I like the colors. But, for me, it's a little childly. And it's hard to choose placement for this tattoo, cause it doesn't need to be big. IIMHO ankle is the best option.

Yeah, i'm not sure about my ankle/heel area. when i said that, i didn't realize how small that space was.  i'm a pretty small person. i don't want it too be too big and overpowering, but also not too small that it doesn't look good so yeah...placement is a hard one. i'm saving my back, arms, shoulders, and thighs for future tattoos...which basically leaves below the knee.

Hi there. I think the design is cool and it has the meaning that this plant is rough outside and soft and juicy inside. But it's just my opinion, don't take personally))

Btw, i didn't think of tattooing a cactus. I see it's a good idea, but I would do it like in 3D you know? I love 3D tats...

About the place on the body, I'd recommend chest. Don't know, I think it'll look awesome there....

    • 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.
