    Red face Need some help please (tattoo art)

    Hi guys

    this is my first post in here since im reading this forum for a very long time. Although i dont know if this is the right message board for my concern (Just move/delete/punish me if im wrong ^^).
    The background of my request is that im searching for a very special and personal tattoo art. I know how it will look like but i cant paint/illustrate it, its just in my mind if ya know what i mean...

    I know some ppl might say i should go to the tattoo artist and let him paint it for me, but i really really like the stuff you guys are painting here and would love to receive all your input and help.

    Lets give it a try and let me explain the tattoo work:
    The position of the tattoo will be the inside of my leg, right above my ankle. For those who know the dark tower series of stephen king this might be very interesting due to there are many parrallels going with it.
    The center of it will be two chinese characters (see pict.):



    Now i want these characters to be "protected" by a character which takes part in the books from Stephen King: Oy

    Oy is a "Billy Bumbler". These animals are described as looking like a cross between a raccoon and a dog, with a corkscrew-spiral tail. The patterns in the fur are that of a raccoon like shape. However, the paws and head are very much canine. Apart from that, Oy is very expressive and intelligent in his eyes (amber colored) and through his voice.

    While searching in the internet i found very few images of Oy beeing drawn by several fans:



    To come back to the tattoo i want Oy to look protective and ready for battle, there must be something BIIIG in front of him ^^


    For those who know the Dark Tower, Oy died while protecting Roland (protagonist, a gunslinger) against Mordred (kind of a spider).

    Mordred will be the third symbol of my tattoo. But since i dont want a painted spider on my leg i more likely want Mordred painted as a tribal which looks like an aggressive spider coming from above. Heres a very poor scribble of the positions (yes, its worth a laugh ^^ pld :



    Well, what more can i say? I really hope for your help and give u a big THANK YOU in advance for your support.

    First of all, Kanji tattoos scream stupid, sorry that's the way it is.
    Secondly, if this is a non paying job you should post it there.
    Besides if you can't trust the tattoo artist no matter how good the piece is it will turn out like crap.
    I say browse a bunch of tattoo shops, ask around and people will tell you who you can go to, I still think that you should go to the artist who is going to work on your skin for such a request.

    I will never ever put words in evildisco's mouth because I will surely get castrated without anesthesia.

    But not long enough to have run across any of the 5000 other tatoo art requests that always end up the same way, evidently.

    Thx for your fast answers. I will pm an admin to move the thread to "non paying job" area.
    @ Elwell: You are right. Next time i will search before i post, but since feb 2005 i found only 5 other requests not 5000.

    you're getting kanji tatoos?

    make sure you actually know what they mean and not just get it because it looks cool. it might end up saying "check out my ass!" or "gay for pay!" in contonese.
