Description

Hi! I'm looking for a tattoo of a lizard, no particular type in mind, constructed out of tribal designs and patterns. Being tribal, I would prefer just black ink, and it would likely be placed on my right shoulder blade. I live in Australia, so not sure how that will affect you trying to call me. If more suitable, my email address is "bbkr@live.com". Look forward to hearing from you soon!

Details
  • Placement: Upper back
  • Color: Black and gray
  • Detail level: Medium

I'd love to create this for

I'd love to create this for you. The next step to take would be to add some funding to your request. This shows the artists that you are serious about getting a custom design. Once the funding is up, we can all start sending you sketches.

Thanks!

Hi Naomi,

Hi Naomi,

Thanks for the speedy reply! Considering the project, what is an appropriate amount of funding? I obviously don't want the artists feeling like I'm wasting their time, but nor do I want to pay a fortune simply for the design. I mean no disrespect, I certainly don't have the talent. Look forward to hearing from you soon!

Hi, take a look at mi

Hi, take a look at my portfolio, i really enjoy doing tribal designs :)

Keegan Thomson-Paressant

Hi Adrian,

Hi Adrian,
I like a lot of the tribal designs you've got in your photos, it's essentially the style I'm looking for. However, there's nothing quite like my tattoo idea. Would you be able to draw me up a quick sketch of your idea of my tattoo? I would love to see what you can do!

Hey Keegan, I did a quick sketch for you. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi!

Hi!

Thanks for taking the time to sketch this for me. I will admit it wasn't quite what I had in my head. However, I do like it. The image I had in my head is the body was built more out of the tribal designs rather than just the outline. Hope that makes sense. I also don't know how that may complicate things for you. Of course, I am open to whatever style advice you can give me. I look forward to seeing any further work you'd like to show me. Thanks again!

I totally got you, no problem

I totally got you, no problem at all! So you're looking for a modern tribal style right? I'll do a couple small sketches and see what I can do. Thanks!

And if you wanted to go a different route I also do overlapping designs. Here's an example

That's cool! However, I'm not sure how you could apply that to my current design. Surprise me! :D

Wow Adrian! Those look

Wow Adrian! Those look awesome! My favourite would probably be the one on the far left hand side. It's almost exactly the sort of thing I'm looking for. If you have any other concept sketches of a similar style to that one, I would love to see them! Thanks again!

Hi!

Hi!
They're so good! Exactly the sort of thing I'm looking for. Out of those two, it's a hard decision, but I think the right hand side one is my favourite. I would say, however, that I think I prefer the tail on the left one, comparing it to that of the right one. I'm sure I sound very pedantic. Thank you so much for your time! :)

Keegan Thomson-Paressant

Hey man! I love your sketches

Hey man! I love your sketches so much! Thank you so much for you help :-) I'm only a few steps away from getting it tattooed... I'll make sure to show you the final result.

Hi, Keegan, are you ready to pick one of us to finish this?

Hi! What exactly do you mean?

Hi! What exactly do you mean? Am I ready to have it physically tattooed by one of you? Or just to pick a winning design for the website? Sorry if I'm a bit slow on the uptake :-P By the way, thanks for your most recent sketches! They're pretty awesome, and a style I haven't seen thus far. You're making my decision tough, but also more interesting :D

Hi Keegan, To clarify we bid

Hi Keegan, To clarify we bid the amount a fully finished design design costs. The sketches we send you on here are representations of our ideas for your design. Then you choose who you want to finalize the design, and send you tattoo ready files. So in order for one of us to even see a dime from our work you need to decide who you'd like to finish the design with. Both Adrian and myself are accomplished artists, so you wont be disappointed. To pick an artist you must fund their full bid . Ie $125-150 USD
