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...

    • Tylenol is not a blood thinner, it should be fine to take before the tattoo, the best things you can do before a tattoo is mentally prepare for it, put yourself in a pleasant place in your head, perhydrate the day and night before and get a good nights sleep, eat a really good healthy meal right before the tattoo, bring sugary candy and water with you to the tattoo, I bring skittles and M&M's, I also bring a banana to eat half way through, eat a little candy throughout the tattoo, it will make you feel better. don't forget to turn the sounds off on your phone during the tattoo,like the ringer and text alerts, it's the polite thing to do.  
    • I like the new guy's style, too.  Highlights and some outlining added to the top might help it, applied by the right person. Print out a photo and have him show you what he's intending.  I don't know about the Tylenol question, but I doubt it'd help much. It's just a sensitive area and it's gonna suck. 
    • Some time ago I have posted a tattoo that the guy screwed up. The tattoo is going to be "repaired" guy said that he needs a full session to make it look good.  Meanwhile he is doing me this to join both tattoos together there will also be colours like orange eyes and pentagram and flames around the horns.  But I couldn't last the whole session so he only finished the contours it was painful much more than the chest.  The only place I had a bit of relief was the middle of my belly.  So here is the question is Tylenol ok to use before the session.     And could you give me any personal opinion what do you think about this idea of tattoo.  Is it going to work I mean the top tattoo is kind of more realistic style and what is going to make on my belly is not going to be so much realistic. Personally I really like his style and the idea to put a bit of life to the top tattoo with colours but would to hear some honest opinions.   Thanks.  Pawel.
