Back piece advice

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi guys. 

I’m booked in to make a start on a traditional styled back piece. Artist has told me to think about the designs I want to include, and we’ll go about mapping it all out. 

I just wondered if you guys had any advice. Meaning isn’t always important to me (although if possible, it’s a nice bonus!) but I’ve decided I want this to be family related. Was thinking a centre image of some description, then a few little things dotted around it.. 

any advice would be great! 

Cheers

i dunno any traditional styled pieces that represent family. elephants? gorillas?

an eagle across the top comes to mind... sort of like a protector, i guess, aside from being a quintessential badass traditional subject matter.

perhaps the little things can represent different family members.

you can always run ideas by your artist as well... what does the artist like to tattoo?

Yeah, that’s what I thought I’d do. Have a pretty classic central image, then have a couple of cherrubs, hearts, hand shake etc...  Maybe a mermaid for the Mrs! 

Eagle could be cool too... 

he does mostly traditional stuff. He’s quite local to me and his stuff looks very solid...
