New to the thread, but not ink, and was hoping to crowd source some ideas for filler/shading to link two tattoos together on my arm. They are both music lyrics and have definitive meanings outside the original content for me, so I'm not looking to add a bunch of hokie music notes or something in the background. Also, I'm not really concerned with linking the tats as much as I am closing out this section of my arm. I used two different phenomenal artists here in Dallas, TX where I live and I highly value their opinions. That said, I am pretty meticulous about what I want and like to get advice from a multitude of sources and inspirations before I go in and consult. Right now, I'm pretty stumped as to what would work. I do agree that the negative space isn't a negative so to speak and just slathering clouds, dots, stars, etc isn't always the most creative avenue. So, here I am and I'm open to any thoughts that the pro's (both artists and collectors) may have. Photos attached for reference.
