Who wants to take over the group?  I have neither the time or energy to properly maintain this group. Let me know, if there are no takers I may just close the group.

Congratulations you guys!
I will be announcing the winners of the 2014 Halloween Flash contest tomorrow after I finish my tattoo appointment. Also, I want to devote a lot more time to my painting. So if anyone wants to take over the group shoot me a message. If I don't hear anything within 7 days I'll either dump it on someone else, or just close the group. let me know.
About a week remains, so you guys better hurry up!
Also this contest is for tattoo flash

What is tattoo flash?

Tattoo designs meant for reproduction by other tattooists.

not - custom tattoo designs.

not -  photos of tattoos

not - tattoo themed illustration

Flash can be single designs, but most of the time multiple tattoo designs are placed on an 11"x14" sheet of paper.

Also, only members of True Love Tattoo are eligible to enter / win.

Good Luck!

Do your tattoo artist a favor, Let them design what they will tattoo on your body. These days a lot of tattooers are accomplished artists and it is lame to be denied the chance to design our tattoos we do. There are a ton of tattooists that would love to do the kind of stuff you are looking for. I highly recommend not getting someone different then your tatoo artist to design your sleeve.

My personal opinion on that is to get whoever you have chosen as your tattoo artist to do the drawing as well. It pretty much guarantees the art to be just like the tattoo, as some artists can find it hard to mimic and tattoo the same as someone else's drawing, because they don't know the method or the progress.

Hello, Im looking for anyone who might want to help me with a design to finish my tattoo.  I really need to fill all of the empty space and tie everything together. Im welcoming all ideas. Superman is favorite in the league and captain America in the avengers. A friend suggested that I get something that represents each of them behind their respected logos and maybe some norse symbols behind the Viking. I don't really want to go much further down the arm. Id really appreciate any and all help I can get with this. Thanks

The best advice I can give you is to research the tattoo artists in your area. Once you have found one you are confident in, allow them to design what you need.  Certain aspects of the tattoo process especially in the design stages go much better when you can have a real face to face consultation. That allows the artist to create a design that will work on your body.

Hi I am looking to add to improve an old Maori tattoo I had on my forearm years ago would like to include aspects relating to wildlife and the tree of life, open to all ideas and am a fan of detail as you can see this is what my original tattoo is currently lacking! Would love to get an insight into the design process and community too as I am a big fan and as a documentary filmmaker also have ideas about a short film I would like to make. Please get in touch!
