right now i am designing a tattoo, that has quite a bit of meaning to me.

it is based on a phrase my best friend used to say all the time.

the design is a triangular shape where the legs of the triangle are the words man, midget, and priest. i am struggeling with how to put the words "some things" in the middle of the triangle.


i know, it is odd, something original, with meaning, that will be inked into my skin for all eternity.

has anyone here designed their own?

Yes. And fuck Godsmack.

(good band, but it wasn't my intention to ink their logo on my shoulder a year before they even became a band)

I've 'designed' all of mine.

Some ended up being re-drawn and improved by the tattooist, but, the general design on all of them is mine.

I made this few weeks ago when I was bored. You should put it on your chest.

I'm trying to design my own, but A) I can't draw and B) live quite a distance from any decent tattoo artists to do the drawing for me.

Thus far in life I'm ink free.

For whatever reason, I like that.

Can you design one with Thomas Jefferson fucking FBHO up the ass while FBHO sucks John Adams' dick?

I'll chip in a couple bucks if you get something like that inked.

I did a couple for a battle buddy back in '04, but never anything for myself. I have a friend I've known since high school who's a tattoo artist now, and much more talented than I am, and I go to him.

"Some" is a little shorter than "things," so I'd imagine you could fit them on top of eachother -

Some
Things

However, since "man" is really short compaird to the others, you're going to end up with a long, skinny triangle, unless you use big stretched letters for "man" and crunch them together for the other two words (which is what I'd go for myself, it'd probably look best as an equalateral triangle, and put a little more emphasis on what you're going for I think, that all three are "equal.")

Of course, if your guy's anything like mine, he'll curse you for wanting to do any text at all.

yeah, i figured it out how to make it an equalateral triangle, and yes, it needs to be there for the message.

it is based on a phrase my best friend used to say all the time "somethings are best left between a man, a midget, and a priest"

You know . . . I did a cool as hell, in-profile nude of my wife I've been saving $ for. But, I fucking love that idea!

Jeesh! Sorry, Babe! You may have to wait!

I've worked with the artist on most of what I have. One was totally what was in my head and came out through his hands. Others were modified from the basic flash. Still others were plain flash.

Find someone whose work you like and talk to them. Don't rush.

Probably the biggest tip I would give would be to stick to classic designs that don't look like cheap Merchant Marine tats from the '20s or that eagle my idiot nephew got that looks more like a vulture.

How important to you is it that you draw the tattoo yourself? You can take the idea you have to a talented artist, and let them handle the execution. Of course, you will have final say as it is your body and idea.

With the exception of my very first, I designed all of mine (20+)

it is based off a quote that was used all the time by my best friend who died almost 4 years ago, to say it is important that i draw it is like saying Verne Troyer is short.

If you're hitting a snag, this might be the way to go.

Besides, maybe his idea will give you an idea!

Generally tattoo artists are usually a bit of artist. Go speak with one and have them draw it for you. Depending on what where why when they may charge for a drawing, so ask.

I designed my own. Tattoo artist made some modifications (mostly color, as he explained the color contrasts would make it pop more. He was 100% right.)

Link Posted: 6/11/2013 7:46:51 AM EST
BTW, if you don't KNOW you have a good deal of artistic talent, don';t even try. Find a GREAT artist, and then go to them with your idea. Let them design it. It's what they do. A good tattoo artist doesn't just reproduce flash from the wall on your arm. They can draw, and will make it far better than you ever will.

Link Posted: 6/11/2013 7:50:25 AM EST
I designed the last few, and have a few drawn up that I may get some day. Just holding on to them to see if I feel they're still relevant after some time has passed.

I don't care if it does have meaning to you, that's the dumbest fucking tat idea I've ever heard.
Link Posted: 6/11/2013 8:07:31 AM EST
I have and I'm slowly starting to regret it.

Back in my highschool days I was in a band. The lead singer (my best friend) died and I ended up getting our band logo tattooed on my arm when I was 18. 20 years later, sad to say, I don't even remember him. That's a chapter long closed in my book yet I still have a tattoo of what looks like a logo for a golf shoe manufacturer burned in my skin 'for all eternity'.

Thinking about firing up the belt sander...or I'm not totally opposed to the idea of having a skilled tattoo artist do something with it.

One of the guys I train with is a huge viking fan. He reads a shit ton of history and could, in all seriousness, write a book on the subject.

This is long before the show came out. It's his heritage and he could fit right in with the cast. Average weight/height but he is one of the strongest meanest mofos I have ever met.

Anyway, he designed all of his tattoos with the main one looking exactly like those on the show. I was like, "Hey!! XXXX has the same motif!" when the show came out. It is like a simple braided Norse design up his right arm, onto the shoulder, and down onto the chest with some knots/loops in it. He had the tat guy mix up the paint to resemble the color of ink that would have been used. I rarely admire tattoos but his is very cool.
