    Default New Art Time!!!

    Im gonna have a bash at designing my next piece.

    I want a half sleeve, full shoulder, half chest. It will include 2 cover ups, 1 stupid heart tattoo on my chest and the typical bulldog from my upper arm.

    Im looking at tribal, all black, similar to my full sleeve on my other arm.

    Anyone got any ideas they can throw at me.? Any sites for inspiration?

    get some paper and mask out the area on your body directly first, before looking for inspiration (your going to need a fair bit of paper old rolls of wall paper helped me) then on that mark out where the major muscle groups are while its still on your body -you will need help so get you wife/gf to help then mark on to that where the 2 that you want covering are and make stencils from that origional one

    as for going for the tribal designs are you staying with the traditional (leo zulueta style) or more of the rory keating style (have a look on the ng's for a show called tattoo wars i think it was 102 that had them both in it) personally i like the polynesian style and maouri styles (i have one my self) but they dont always offer the same kind of coverage of older tattoos that the traditional tribal do

    if i were you with the masks made and a couple of extras id just sit down and draw even if you dont think its much good try it and try to follow the lines of muscles/ ligaments that way you should get a nice flowing piece my self ive been getting the idea of mixing an old style traditional tribal with the mouri and ploynesian styles as it came down the arm if its any help your welcome to the idea

    Cheers lads,

    Cas, thats a good idea with the paper, the wifes gonna piss herself when i suggest wrapping me up in wallpaper.

    Its gonna take a while but i'll get there in the end.

    A mix of both designs is ideally what im after, i think this is the best option because choosing 1 design will limit the cover up choices.

    if i were you id have the older style black designs over the bits that you wanna cover over and then fade them out as they strech out over your chest and around your arm, then as you get to the end move to the polynesian/mouri styles

    and yeah you will feel a fool with the wall paper but its worth it, i still get the piss taken for the last time i did it with wall paper but i got the design right and my friend who i did it for was very happy with the result
