so this is a pretty basic idea, new thread to discuss ink you're planning on getting, still working out the kinks of and want feedback, post scans of sketches, etc. and then photos after it's done, if you like.
I myself am planning on getting a really intricate and geeky tattoo soon (admittedly, in a few different sessions) that'll cover half or a little more of my back. Influences will be Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman, and Norse/Scandinavian mythology (where a lot of my heritage is from). I'm planning on having a big circle between my shoulder blades and have the symbols from the alethiometer going around the inside of it, and then have a crude sketch of a doorway inside the circle and a skeleton key vertically in the doorway, for Neverwhere. and then on either side of the circle have a raven, I've been trying to find a traditional Norse knotwork type raven but I think I might just do a silhouette of a raven on either side. And then knotwork going down my back and coming to a point around the waistline.
I could post a detailed description of every tattoo I want to get ever, but then this'd take forever
also coming soon is a tattoo of a guitar with a Clash song quote around it, a Buffy tattoo, and I think maybe a day of the dead flapper lady.
what are YOU guys planning on?
