    I have this ugly tattoo on my back. It was made in high school while... drunk.
    I would like to cover it with another drawing but I don't have any idea what to be. I just want it covered with something to look nicer.

    Can any one help with an idea, a sketch?

    Yeahh... I'm not in UK. There is a good guy very close to my home who does a great job but he is busy enough doing the tattoos that hes not interested/ doesn't want to create the models. He just puts them on the skin so I have to go to him with the model.

    Just general small tat's scattered over my arms that I never got around to finishing, so it just looks sh*t. The plan was to get it in filled between the tats but I just never got around to getting it done, now I just can't be bothered.

    Lisa Clarke did a big tribal cover up for me... £20 for the tribal... Took 15minutes when I was 16... The cover up took 13 hours and cost closer to £600 but well worth it...

    Before and after...

    Heres my tattoo that I have in progress, it's finished for now but when I have kids I am having cubs added playing in the background... This is 19hours in at a cost of £780

    The tree is also covering up an old bull dog tattoo on my shoulder... This was done by Danny Britwistle in the same shop...

    see, this kinda post - and you see it a LOT on message boards - just leaves me totally baffled. Tatts are w/ you for life, it should be something YOU want, not someone you don't know on a random internet site. think about what means a lot to you, either a thing or concept and THEN people could help you w/ the art.

    going off other people's ideas of what should be inked on your body and i can almost guarantee there'll be another thread just like this one some years down the line.

    this annoys me, not a good artist at all.
    i colaborate with my artist alot over one design, a few meetings to work on ideas and drawings, the one below (the grenade) i took my idea and a drawing, we talked about it, he made adjustments, and worked on a final design, then i saw the final design, we made tweaks, and then got cracking. Its part of a bigger picture that i dont have the funds for at the mo, but it will be completed by the same artist eventually.

    My younger brother also sees the same artist, hes had alot more done than me:

    That is a posiedon theme.
    and i dont have a finished one of his back but:
    [​IMG]
    A sort of YIN/YANG theme but a bit more subliminal and dark.

    The artist is Karl Atkins, formally of DABStattoo in southport.
    An artist should want to work on designs with/for you, you dont have to be an artist yourself either, they should be talented enough to see your ideas and get them on paper.

    Try to consult with an expert tattooist. He can solve this issue.
