Hello artists, i have a challenge for you all.
This thread is about a tatoo design but i want to give you a back story.
My father is terminally ill and i hope to honour him when he passes with a tattoo. I have no body art of any kind but when he passes i have made the
decision to remember him in this manner. I hope no one mocks me or insults me because of this.
So i turn to ATS members as i know some of you have an artist inside of you.
This is not a joke, it is not an idle fantasy. If you design something and i decide upon your design i will have it done. So i suppose i should lay
down the guidelines.
1. It must include a shamrock. My father is Irish and so i want this included.
2. It must be a full "sleeve". That being it should be a tattoo that extends from shoulder to wrist.
3. Understand my father is terminally ill, i don't want to have this done until he has passed because to me it seems morbid. So it may be several
years before i have this done, but when i have it done i will post it online. Hopefully it will be many years before he passes, as long as possible i
hope. It could be one year or 5 so you may need patience to see your work.
4. Colours are fine but remember this is a tattoo so certain restrictions apply, they need to be able to create this artwork.
That's all. Go for your life but i promise, on my fathers life this is not a joke, it's not something i will back away from. Once my father passes i
wil have this done. The winning tattoo will go on my body. So i hope this can be taken seriously.
Go for it guys.
