Sea Turtle Masquerade

EarlGreystoke
Requested by EarlGreystoke Jan 12, 2015 at 10:05am | Greensboro, North Carolina (~246M)

I'm a new biar pipe maker, and I need a logo for my brand! I'll be getting it as a tattoo over my right shoulder blade as well. I'm thinking ~5x5 in.
.
I've had this idea for a while, so it's rather specific. I hope it provides an interesting challenge!

I'm a new biar pipe maker, and I need a logo for my brand! I'll be getting it as a tattoo over my right shoulder blade as well. I'm thinking ~5x5 in.
.
I've had this idea for a while, so it's rather specific. I hope it provides an interesting challenge!
.
The image I'd like is an octopus mimicking a sea turtle. Similar to the "Duck/Rabbit" illusion, the graphic should appear to be a sea turtle for all intents and purposes until subtle details are pointed out, shifting the perspective and thus revealing the octopus. Color scheme preferably grayscale, though feel free to take artistic liberties as desired or necessary. I value subtlety quite highly, and hope that my tattoo would reflect this. It would be great if the octopus and included icon were more or less invisible unless you know where to look. If it's hidden well enough, I'd love to add UV tracing over the octopus.
.
If possible to include the design of the attached icon somewhere in the graphic (maybe hidden within the design of the "shell?"), it would be much appreciated. The specific dimensions of the icon need not be maintained, more the hint that it’s there. Again, subtlety is key; I would prefer lack of inclusion of the icon to copy&paste inclusion. The icon is my family name translated into Blissymbolics (artistic liberties taken).
.
I filled out a Design Brief (this site won't let me post the link or file) a while ago for a Reddit request. While filling it out, I realized it might make this a lot simpler to go tribal. Much easier (and probably less time consuming) to hide an octopus in a tribal sea turtle! I've got Celtic and Native American heritage, so I guess it works out. That being said, I do not wish to constrain anyone to a tribal design, should they imagine a different concept.
The attached tribal octopus is not mine, but I really enjoy the simplicity and use of negative space. I also enjoy the angle and posture of the attached turtle, though these are simply suggestions, rather than requirements.
.

Thank you guys!

half sleeve open to ideas

pnaples92
Requested by pnaples92 Jan 11, 2015 at 8:32pm | Killeen, Texas (~1,268M)

I have a rattle snake tattoo with "don't tread on me" as a rocker under the snake and "liberty or death" as a rocker above the snake. I would like to make a half sleeve out of this. I don't really have much of an idea on how i want it to look. I have thought maybe putting a pin-up girl in there and some of North Carolinas state symbols in with it but I have no idea on how to make this work together. I am still open to any idea though. The snake doesn't need to be the center piece of the tattoo either. I posted a picture of what I have there is nothing else on my arm.

Part of the snake can be covered up with a new tattoo if needed.

Design Request

A wolf inspired symbolic tattoo that represent family, loyalty, devotion, strength, and compassion.

Either the design contain a single wolf head or a full bodied wolf. The images references I've uploaded is there for you to use or draw your sketches/designs base off from the images I've provided for you and whenever it seems fit for the both of us, you don't have to necessary draw the same exact details in those images, rather get creative with it or create new details, shape or form. The style I preferred is realism, however I'm open for any suggestions for different styles. On the side note, I don't want what everybody else have on their body.

Instead I prefer and want a unique wolf tattoo that is tailored for me only. A customize wolf tattoo I shall say.

Update: I'm looking perhaps for a tribal wolf design that combined with a realistic style or any styles but not cartoonish. I add more later.
