Hello community!

I have been following this forum and I can see that there are some good artists right here. 

I need a recommendation:

I have been working my sleeve this last 2 years or so. ´`

My first tattoo was a really sick chess piece on my shoulder:

So far so good...

I think this is the part I screwed up. I'm a forex trader and I wanted something relating to trading so I got the wall street bull with a graph behind (my idea was that the graph got connected with the chess board, but the artist didn't got the idea I believe). Even that I like the piece individual by itself, it does not match with the chess board. This is the picture of the tattoo:

My last piece that I absolutely love, I worked on it in my forearm:

Maybe you can get the idea by now. I have been working on an animal sleeve in a full environment. I need one more piece to go on the other side of my forearm and I will have all my arm full, maybe i will just need a background.

 

Now this is my inquiry:

I kinda think I screwed it up. Im feeling kinda depressed. My tattoo's don't synchronize with each other. All together looks kinda weird. What can I do to save my arm and have a sick full arm sleeve tattooed?? please help me! Should I get laser on the graph that is behind the bull? Should I cut my arm? Or maybe I should try connecting all this pieces with a good background? If so what's your recommendation?

Thank you!

A full picture of your arm would assist in seeing how much filler you will need, but I don't see any problem in a good neo-realism artist coming up with a nice background that will fill it out and tie it together. You might be over-thinking it.

Either a cohesive background like @SStu suggested, or just get more little filler tattoos.  It looks like there's a fair amount of space for even medium-sized tattoos in there.  Don't rush it, building a collection "organically" like this takes time.

    • Hey Kaizu, Welcome. Here's my two cents and I'm not trying to be a downer, so please take my opinion in the right way. This is way too much. Unless you have someone who KILLS lettering, you won't be happy. Has your artist seem your idea?  I would invite you to consider going with maybe one or two of those words that mean the most then put the rest of the meaning into an image. Think about why those words resonate with you and how you landed on this idea.  Cheers!
    • Hey. First of all I'm new to this forum. So, hello! 🙂 

      Ok så I'm getting a new tattoo (9.9.2018 booked) 
      And i have a specific tattoo base i know, but now i thought i want some advice/hints what would fit in  (my head is totally jammed) 

      So im getting these texts: Honor, Compassion, Truth, Wisdom, Courage, Loyalty, Respect.
      That is 100% sure, swells text fonts are locked in.
      But.. the tattoo will be dull if there is only text, and id like some ideas of what kind of image/ (s) would fit in with that.. 
      Size of tattoo is about Shoulder tattoo that reaches towards the elbow and to upper back and front. (hope you get the picture of location, my hand is swinging ike crazy here trying to show you)

      Will add a picture of the text fonts here aswell, where i got the idea from. (the text "seven virtues" might not include in tattoo, depends a lot of what filler / image(s ) i eventually will do.. 
      Hopefully i can get at least som kind of hints or maybe pictures of same stylish tattoos.. 🙂

      Thanks you in advance. 
      Oh im a Guy, and theme of the tattoo could be more symbolic, not just tribals and stuff 🙂
    • The Stewart Robson dragon penis tattoo is remarkable, intriguing and brilliant in the technical sense. There is an old thread from many years ago on LST "Areas Of Your Body You WON'T Tattoo", page 11 has Stewart's comments on that tattoo. If you search the internet you could probably find Stewart's detailed blog post and pic of it. I think that was that gentleman's first tattoo and he was prepared and had a firm vision which Robson executed with amazing skill . You could also search for Matt Gone (checkerboard man), I've talked to him in person about his tattoos. His website has some pretty graphic details about his underwear zone tattoos. You will probably have more luck getting info (or trolling) on the BMEzine backpages.  Black out "piercer arm" is one thing...but "percier arm" penis is another ! LOL just pierce your cock or do a head split if you're feeling that kinky.
