    Default Help me redesign/update my tattoo.

    I've had it since 1991, thus it's pretty ragged. I got it at the little shop in Balboa Beach. I have a strong attachment to her, but I also recognize it's now practically indistinguishable. I would like to find someone who could create a design that incorporates her and adds some more flowers and maybe even incorporates my daughter's name, Isabela. I would love to add a butterfly somehow too. I don't mind being "realistic," but I also really appreciate the Aztec style of creating birds and butterflies. I wouldn't want it to go much further up the leg, but I'd be game for it to go down and even over onto the top of the foot. (Ouch.)



    I'd love to see your ideas. Otherwise, I'll be stuck with the . . . "Is that a turtle?" tattoo.

    The tattoo parlor on 2nd street Pomona, Inked Chronicles, does really good work, specifically an artist there named Cindy. I've gotten one tattoo from her and I was more than satisfied and my girlfriend has also gotten one from her and they both came out really great, plus her portfolio is top notch. I don't have any ideas on what your tattoo currently is and any way on how you can change it but you should seriously consider going to the place I mentioned.

    It's a daisy with leaves that are coming out above it. Yea, it's gotten pretty bad. All the color has washed out and the flower itself has shrunk.


    Lol at the alien. I'm not sure if you mean the tattoo or my glowing toenails.

    Think of the bottom of my foot as the bottom of the flower, and the leaves sprout up and out from the flower. I figured it'd be pretty easy to build out and down from her and keep the flower. I don't want to get rid of her entirely. It's a bit sentimental.

    Is the sasquatch a comment on my hairy legs? How rude.

    I don't really have any concrete ideas that's why I need the artists on here to inspire me. I kind of figured maybe turning it into a chain of flowers all different sizes, but I'd also like to incorporate a butterfly and my daughters name. I wouldn't want it to be huge, but I definitely can go bigger

    I'd like to go in to the studio with a rough sketch of an idea, so that the artist could take it and improve on it if necessary.

    I feel the same way Algunz. Although I just started getting tattoos but the one on the top of my foot is a black heart with flames, I was kind of in the I hate boys mode at that time. I had it done in Vegas and its a bit shitty. I won't get rid of it because it does remind me of a time in my life and the feelings behind it but I do want to add on to it or incorporate it into something else.

    I have never picked a tattoo off a wall or anything, I have always gone in with an idea of what I want and then gave that to the artist and they always draw it into something I could never have come up with on my own. Just find a shop that people have recommended and look through the artist portfolio and see if you like their work. Then give them a rough idea and I am sure they will come up with something. And if you don't like it, feel free to tell them, they will redo it.

    I think it would be easy to retouch that and add more. If you wanted to change the original design into something else, say your daughter's name, maybe try researching different fonts - something that would blend well with the Aztec style. I'm not sure if you are trying to keep everything black or incorporate color but by keeping it black with lighter shades I think it would be easy to add more. It seems you have an idea of what you want so I think you should google search stuff or check a book out at the library that has images you are looking for, it could help brainstorm some ideas. Do you have an artist? I think a lot of artists are pretty creative as long as they have a general idea of what you are looking to do and how much space you want it to cover.

    I've gotten turtle, dinosaur, various things (alien, dolphin - never sasquatch though) in a tutu or one of those Shakespearean fluffy collars.

    Maybe across would have been better.
