New here, advice wanted

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

This is my first post here and I think you guys could offer some good advice. I'm currently working on two sleeves that are matching, but different in a way. One arm is going to be bright and colorful with flowers, fruit, and a possum; the other arm is essentially a matching, decayed version of the other arm in Black and White. The problem I'm running into is the filler between my tattoos. I was initially just thinking these leaves that the color artist does that I LOVE, but I was talking to my b&w artist and he doesn't think that it would be easy to depict leaves in a decayed state. So I come here to see if you guys have any ideas! Thanks 🙂 sorry if I messed my post up at all, it's my first time lol

Very glad to help!

She's moving to New Orleans (next month, I think). Looking forward to having some additional creative talent around here.

    • Worrying until you are sick at your stomach and thinking about covering up an unfinished cover-up is not normal or healthy,. That level of anxiety is very worrying, and it suggests to me there is an issue. This person says they have other tattoos, but it might be one tiny one somewhere. It doesn't mean they are equipped to handle an enormous tattoo on their arm. Any attempt to cover that up again will drive this person around the twist because it will not look better. So thanks for sharing your thoughts, but I stand by my comment.
    • I agree. It looks sweet. My bet is you'll probably grow to like it. At least give yourself that chance!!
    • I did a quick search and found only a no-info website page and almost no input facebook page. The Owner's name isn't even prominent or possibly even listed, so I can't really react to historical reference artwork or ability. Not comforting here from the outside.  The example you posted could be understandable to the closely initiated, but it's too small to provide any real detail. Hopefully you're going much bigger if you're intending to add a tree or two to the mix.  The results, feel and comfort gained (or not) from your consultation is going to be paramount.
