Hey everyone. Since this is the art forum, I’m hoping I can get some help from some awesome artists (someone who is willing to let me use their art for a tattoo).
Well anyway, I recently lost my younger brother, and I would like to get a tattoo involving some of our inside jokes. However, I feel kind of weird explaining all of this to a tattoo artist so I was hoping you guys could help me instead. Unfortunately, I don’t have a very good imagination so I don’t have anything specific in mind, but here’s what I do have:
If possible, I would like the theme to be something like a “from the mind of”. Not meaning it has to say that, but these were all inside jokes and stories we made up ourselves to keep ourselves laughing and to get us through some rough times, so I’d like it to reflect that (not necessarily the rough times part though…)
Some of the things that I would love to have featured (and yeah, they’re going to be weird…don’t ask :p)
An African Tribal chief
Two rednecks with hats kinda like this one-http://rlv.zcache.com/deer_hunter_hat-p148551171278702818z8nb8_400.jpg, one with a red plaid shirt, I don’t really care what the other one has for a shirt.
A kind of cartoonish looking Bill Clinton sitting on top of a wall clock with his legs dangling down (like I said, don’t ask; we were weird :p)
And a beatnik with his ear to a door, while on the other side, are a boy and a girl, each in a cot, looking scared, partially hiding under covers.
Last but not least, the Haight/ Ashbury street signs (http://www.johnfloresgraphics.com/haightAshbury.gif just the signs, not the other crap) Actually, if these legs could be added in, that would be awesome too- http://pantheonphotos.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/haight-ashbury-san-francisco-photo-by-john-ecker.jpg)
I know that all sounds crazy and strange but it all has a lot of meaning to me and if anyone could somehow put something like this together for me, it would mean the world to me.
Thanks in advance to anyone who offers!
