Although this is not my style, I think a skilled artist could do it justice, atvthe same time as putting a personal flair on it. The bigger question is: do you like it? And assuming you do, will the meaning it holds for you stand the test of time? How willing are you to let your tattooist take liberties with the disign? Remember you are paying an artist to create, not a printer to copy a picture.

i love the design, its meaning is "keep the evil out".  My best friend was going to get it, but passed away 3 years ago.  I came across his profile last night and thought it was an awesome design, with some of my own personal meaning behind it as well...If an artist wanted to do some different with it, i would def consider it

It has quite a bit of the late 90's and early 00's "tribal" feel to it.


Would you do the bold black or have them soften it up with colors?


What is the significance of it to you? Looking at that design, how does it make you feel and what do you think it means?

i would def consider other colors if need be...

my tip to you, is do your research. talk to tattoo artists, to get an idea on who is a top notch artist in your area. beware talking to random tattooed people as they have a tendency to recommend their artist only, I know I do, as I get deals from my guy to send folks his way. But a good artist will talk to you about what you want to say with your piece. Know what you want, but be open to ideas.

by the by, your reasoning to get it is sound in my book.

ty Dallas for the tips

Quite welcome, let's us see it when its done!


Any success with getting that tat?
