Any good drawers here? Need your help

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Ok so I have talked to the hubby and he is on board with me getting a new tat. I have to pay for it but its a go. I know what I want but I can not find even a good enough image to take to the shop for them to sketch up how I want it. So what I need is a black and white sketch adding color is not needed really unless you want to add it. And if you PM me I can give you more details. Oh and if you are at least a little familiar with Pink Floyd The Wall it would be helpful but you can find the images online with some searching. I would do this my self but I can not draw at all. Thanks guys.

Oh no, you spelled it just right! It is just one of those words that means several things; a person who draws, a pair of underpants, drawers as in "chest of drawers". It was me being silly

I can't draw, but I was going to ask you what the tattoo was going to be of? I love Pink Floyd!

Its from the Wall. Its the "love" flowers that are in the movie version (and probably on the cd but I don't own it). The thing is I can not find the perfect image of it though.

I might be able to give it a shot, let me know what you are looking for and I will see if I can figure it out. (PS if you think it looks horrible just say so I won't feel bad!)

If you go to the tattoo shop and tell them what it is that you are looking for, they will sketch it out for you. You approve the sketch before they do the tattoo.

I did a google search. I'm not familiar with the cover art for that album, but I did find some kind of hear flower, not sure if it's from that album or not, but it's quite interesting.

Well at this point it will be a bit one I have to get the money up for it. And 2 I am hunting down the artist that did my last tat which will be an out of state trip for me. The reason I am traveling out of state to do the tat is because the guy who did my last one did a great job on it. 6 years later it looks as good today as it did the day I walked out of the shop with it.

i know they can sketch it there but I wanna a better idea of how it will look before I go down there to the shop. I know that sounds weird for some but thats the way I am.

Jen let me see what I already have on the computer and I will pm you the idea.

Just wondering if you have a digital camera, & the DVD of the Wall...
Just pause where you want it & take a picture of it. It's worked for me before, you might have to take a few shots before you find the right one.
I know what you mean, though, I have that DVD & it's one of my favorite parts!

Considering how many bra threads there have been lately, I thought the same thing for a moment!

The only 'flowers' I can really find in reference to Pink Floyd's The Wall is the two lily looking ones. Are these it? The open and the closed ones facing each other, looking like... (I'm sure you know the symbolism )

edit: slow posting and saw your other post. All I can find a decent picture for are the figurines.

If you have a photoediting program, you can run it thru & freeze frame it, save whatever picture you want, print it out & take it to the artist..

See I like the first one you posted. Just the stems need to be extended so that the stems can be entwined.
post #22 of 27
So, basically, you want ( http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...nkfloyd004.jpg ) this with just longer stems on it? Stems that are entwined?

I think I can do that.

yes mostly. Anything else I could just explain to see if they could do.

I'm just trying to imagine you as a little old lady baking cookies for her great-grandchildren... and one of them points at your tattoo and says, "Grandma, tell us the story again, about the fornicating flowers?"

haha yeah I guess that would be an interesting story. But the story would be more along the lines of "Grandma and Grandpa are big Pink Floyd fans." and "These stand for the beauty of love."
