I like skitt's idea of the theater masks!
I like the idea of Olivia's unbalanced scale too!!
Everyone has given you some great food for thought. Take your time, think about it and don't rush into the idea. This will stay with you for a long time, so you owe it to yourself to get something that's just perfect. I like the idea that LFW had about having them make up temporary tattooes to see how you would like it on you. You may want it located in another place after seeing it on you or you may want different colors or just black and white, smaller, larger or totally different. You get the idea.
Bipolar IIIt is a melancholy of mine own, compounded of many simples, extracted from many objects, and indeed the sundry contemplation of my travels, in which my often rumination wraps me in a most humorous sadness. -- William Shakespeare
i have a few tattoos myself, 2 of them were gotten theraputically. they are both on my forearms, which in retrospect sometimes i dont like that but it hits only every 6 months or so so i definitely reccommend careful placement. one is a tree with winding roots that swirl down to a star. the tree is me, whenever i do my art as a protrait i am a tree. dunno why it just is, the other was adapted from a person who had a tattoo that really helped me through a very rough time. silly as it sounds its from a tv star but when i needed something to do, to focud on and to be sane i focused on him. it actually helped me a lot.
i guess wither way make it very personal and make it your own. i can draw like a champ and am usually good with conceptual stuff if you know what youre looking for. are you doing it to mark a time in your life that had passed, to express how you feel now or as a hope for the future. i think asking these wuestions will help you figure out what you want. and hey im always here for helo, its what i like to do,
lemme know how it goes!
