Tattoo design opinons
Before I go on...if you dont like tattoos and feel the need to express your opinion on tattoos, please dont. Surely the thread title told you what this thread is about, so if you dont like tattoos it baffles me as to why on earth you even clicked on this thread. This isnt a do you/dont you like tattoos, this is just a thread to get the opinions of people who appreciate ink.
Been playing around with a few designs, and I think I have come up with what could be the final decision. Just a bit a tweaking here and there, but the concept stays the same. the simplistic nature of the design is one thing I want to keep.
I am thinking black/white, using plenty of shading to give it more detail...I havent got that far yet, so please excuse the sketch type drawing.
So tell me fellow ink wearers, what would you change, if anything?

What is it, pig or a 'yote?

Awesome drawing, I think I would do a small body something about no body make's it look not complete plus you got to have the pig tail. open the BH and maybe a little blood dripping from the BH, other than that it's really good, I could see getting it.

Maybe turn the head a little bit to show some detail of the mouth. Other than that
I'd leave it.

I would put a slick trick broadhead on that arrow.Ohhh wait then the beast would be dead and not growling....LOL Just kidding.I think it will look awesome. Glowing red eyes and possibly a little more body.However it still will look bad they way it is.

Dang both these tags look sweet!!! I really like that 2nd one.

i would add some blood besides that that is a sweet tattoo

I think feathers would add some cool detailing if the tattoo artist can pull it off vs. the blazer style vane. I think more of a traditional looking arrow would look better with an old school head like a Bear Razorback broadhead.

You shouldn't get a tattoo...your skin is precious
Joking. Do what you like. Get an artist you connect with. Check his line work even if not similar to the one you're getting you'll get a good idea of ability with a little observance. Pay more than what you want...it's with you for a long time and it's worth paying for.
I see you're in Aus. I don't know what prices are like there, but in the US things get out of hand quickly. Come see me in Thailand and I'll set you up with an artist that does incredible work for very decent rates. LOL

I got a bowtech tatoo but it peeled off.

A knapped flint broadhead would look pretty cool.

i like the hawg pic. whateva you decide its your skin. maybe have the hawg coming at you after the shot with broadhead sticking through the vitals broadhead expanded and blood dripping off it. mouth open charging at you like them ole hawgs do. just my opinion tho. get inked up!!!

Loomis, love the hog. The only thing I would do different (its a tattoo design, opinions and arses ya know..) is the smaller rows of hair would be smaller or less spikey making the main (biggest section of spike) would give a little more of a nod to a ridgeback, not in a literal sense but I think ya know what I mean.

Put a better broadhead on it and it'd look pretty good, haha.

the second one will need to be large to get any detail out of the upper skull but on the first one fine line black and grey would be realy sweet and allow you to bring the detail out in the hide and could end up being a verry nice peice but,both my sleeves are fine line no color black doesn't run after years of exposure to uv like certain colors do it's kind of like a buz cut low maintenece and allways looks good

One of the things I notice with tattoos with arrows in them is the perspective. The arrow looks way too short, so looks unreal. I have thought a tat of an arrow on the back of an arm, full length of 28+" starting with the fletchings on the triceps and going toward the wrist might be cool. Another idea I have had is a bow at full draw, across the small of the back, with the arrow running up the spine. I really don't think it would look cool on a dude but on a chick ok, kinda like a dude should not pierce his tongue or nips....

with the arrow head coming out the top of the hand.BTW IMO no one should pierce there tongue or nips NO ONE!YUCK!!!!
