Hi there! I'm an 24 years old guy from the Netherlands.

On the age of 18 I had a meningitis which changed my life. I've been struggling with my health for like 4 years and since a year I'm feeling wonderful again.

Because it changed my life so much (I was insecure, not enjoying life, didn't make fun with friends anymore, no relationship, etc) and because I closed that chapter and feeling great again I want to illustrate this in a tattoo on my body. I can be a nice illustration or phrase.

I hope someone can help me out to create a cool tattoo on my upper back or left shoulder.

  • Placement: Upper back
  • Color: Black and gray
  • Detail level: High

What a great reason for a tattoo! I am very interested in creating this very meaningful custom tattoo design for you. In order to move forward, please add funding to your request, at least 25% of your budget. This will enable all interested artists to submit a concept sketch for you to look at. Once you know what artist you want to finish the design, you can choose them and continue on until your tattoo design is perfect! Please let me know if you have any questions.

Ah good to know! I just add the funding, so I'm curious and looking forward to some designs :)

I'm happy to hear you're interested.

Hi Nicky!

Having just read about your story I too would love to help you out with creating a tattoo illustration.

Take a look through my portfolio for examples of my work and hear what people had to say that I have worked with in the past under the 'reviews' section and let me know if you'd like to see something from me :)

For me, it is very vague. I would love to hear about different styles you like and what sort of things are important and need to go in there :)

Look forward to hearing from you,

Hi Benjamin!

Nice to hear you're also interested in my story. The hard thing is that I don't have a clue how to illustrate this story of mine. I would love to hear creative ideas from you and maybe check out together what would be nice?

Hi Nicky, sorry this closed too quickly. I am going to have the admin reopen this request in the morning. There are 3 artists interested.

Hi Nicky,

Sorry it took me so long to come up with something. I had a lot of ideas but narrowed it down the idea I feel most strong about. Please remember this is a rough concept sketch to get your feedback. If you choose me to create the final artwork, it will be VERY polished and detailed! Let me know what you think.

May not be what you're after; it's a bit abstract and out of left field but I imagined this soaring off to left of centre, with the tentacle bits trailing past your spine.

Hey man!
So here's my idea for the design, a hand pulling out another from a sort of darkness.
Let me know if you like where this is going, and if there's anything you'd like me to include!
