advice about tattoo design?

Recommended Posts

Hi there!! I'm new to this page and I've never got any tattoo, but I want one that means 'art' and I don't know exactly what to get. I mean all kinds of art, not just music or literature, but a generic kind of art (I don't know if I'm explaining myself right:4_joy:). Do you guys have any idea? Thanks!!!

Interesting, and very vague! :8_laughing: Do you mean art, such as general creativity?

What do you think of when someone says 'Art'? Is there any kind of art which has specifically influenced your life, or that you love?

When someone says 'art' to me, I think of pianos and multi-coloured musical notes. I love piano.

Are there any artists around your area who you like the style of? I'm not sure how much they can do with a vague idea, but if you find someone whose style you like, you could discuss it with them and have their take on it?

Thanks for your answer!! What art means for me is... Idk, many things :4_joy:, it's not just music, painting, writing and stuff, it's a way of life, of evasion. 

I'll definitely contact an artist to help me think about it!

Evasion? So a way to escape reality?

    • Thanks @Fig1996! honestly I think I’d probably hate if everyone in met asked me about or commented on it too! Haha grass is always greener I suppose! What was your first piece? Is it posted anywhere on here?
    • I like your tattoo a lot! And what a cool and original idea to go with your childhood home! I at least haven't heard of that idea before, so I really like it. I always like me some original and creative ideas. 🙂 As for your question, I've worked as a supervisor in retail for 7 years and therefore had to deal with customers a lot. The moment I got my first forearm tattoo, I got a LOT of customers asking about it. They all told me they really liked it, and one even told me she wanted to get one exactly like mine, and I even had older customers who were super grumpy about tattoos be like "I do like yours" LOL. Then I got another forearm tattoo, though higher up on my forearm, on my right arm and I never once had any customer or even colleague ask about that one. I love that tattoo just as much as the other if not more, and, like @Dan, I'm completely fine with that too. I know this tattoo looks good and professional; and that it fits me well, and I don't really need anyone else validating that because what really matters is what I think when I see it, and I like it.  Frankly, the sheer amount of comments I got about my first tattoo kind of daunted me. Of course, I knew what I was getting into when I got it tattooed so I never resented anyone for asking about it either, but when you get comments like "but what does it REALLY mean?" "what is the deeper meaning behind it???" daily, it does get old pretty quick. 😅
    • I personally really don't think it has to be weird at all. I'd just approach an artist whose work you like and who you feel like you can trust, and then they'll tell you whether they want to take on your task or not. I really think there'd be quite some artists out there who would be willing to take that on. Long as you're not asking them to finish tattoos others worked on/started, which I don't see being an impossible task either but which probably would put them in a much more difficult position given the differences in style as opposed to their own they'd have to work with, I don't really see many issues with this.  I think in most cases the best thing is to just approach and ask! 🙂
