    thanks in advance

    How much exposure will my work get? If the tattoo's going on your bum I'll need you to sign this contract before I do the work, stating you will moon at least 3 people a day for the first 2 years.

    My Sketchbook

    And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.

    I'd also want my signature and website address clearly visible on the tattoo.

    How about you try going to an actual tattoo artist. I have heard that some tattoo artists prefer to draw their own tattoos than copy a pre-existing image not done by them, and a good tattoo artist should be able to do that.

    Asking here or asking a local tattoo artist,

    either way, you're gonna end up having to pay.

    But I gather, you'd pay less just going to the tattoo artist.

    Also what TinyBird said.

    To the OP, why not draw your own?

    First off get a paper and pencil, practice life drawing, take some classes, draw family friends and everyone around you. Wash, rinse, repeat for the next 5 years.

    Then get some references, start with real scaled creatures, lizards, crocodiles, etc, do studies of their structure, skin folds and scale patterns. Then reference dragon imagery, I suggest studying traditional artwork depicting them. Pick up 'Dragons' by Peter Hogarth with Val Clery (Viking Press 1979)

    Then immerse yourself in "cyberpunk" culture. Watch 90s films like Hackers and Johnny Mnemonic, listen to Billy Idols much maligned (unfairly) 1993 album 'Cyberpunk' and play Shadowrun for the next year or so. (specifically campaigns with dragons)

    Combine these elements and post your WIP shots in the critique sessions where we can mercilessly...help you until you create something good enough to post in 'Finally Finished' and as a result, have something worthy enough to decorate your skin with until death.

    It's too bad the old jobs section is gone, I had a great "Nobody Wants To Design Your Tattoo For Free" sticky right at the top.

    Yeah, I miss it too. I tried to read some old drama posts using the search function and if they are in the jobs section, it just redirects you to the new job site.

    Why does everyone want a tattoo designed? Why isn't there someone asking "Can someone design my brand?" I wouldn't mind doing that for free, especially if we're doing it old-school with a properly-shaped iron and a good hot flame...
