Help me pick out a tattoo!

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I want to get a tattoo in memory of my dad. I want to get an angel playing golf because he loved golf with his birth and death day below it.

Here are the pictures I have found so far of angels golfing. If anyone has any, you can post them too. I would love it if I knew someone who could draw and draw one up for me.

This one is tiny, but I could make it bigger.


This would have more detail when done if I got it.


Maybe even something like this.


My dad even had a keychain that said I'd rather be golfing. Maybe I could put that in there somewhere.

If I can't find something with golfing, just an angel will do.

i think any one you chose will be the right one no matter what, i think its a lovely idea to remember you dad, im sorry for your loss i have only just seen the thread.
good luck in your choice i like the middle one.

Tattoo choice is a very personal thing. I'm sure when the time comes, you'll know EXACTLY what you want because it's personal for you regarding your dad.

Good luck.

How about a simple golf ball with his name on it?

If you have a tattoo artist nearby, they can probably use a basic design and add in what you want. They also may be able to just simply draw what you're looking for. I had a thought about an angel, you know, the sort of angel with wispy wings and a flowing dress, long hair, maybe a few clouds in the background or "in the clouds" so she's actually made from the clouds (if that makes any sense)... where she's watching over a man who is either golfing, perhaps swinging a club and hitting a ball, or a man carrying a golf bag. She might even have the man in her hands. You might give the birthdate and date of death, and then something like "always ahead of par while on earth" (and I can't get that phrasing quite right... it's on the edge of my tongue and it's just not coming to me at the moment).. or perhaps something like "forevermore to play the perfect game"

My brain is a little stuck today, so I'm hoping someone can help with the perfect phrasing.

I couldn't find any really good angel designs for tattoos online. I will go look for some regular pictures.

how about something with "Hole-in-one" or "Hole 19", I can't think of how to word it, right this very minute, but I bet some one can! oh ok, is this a rough draft, hole in one, sounds alot like holy one. ok that is as far as I got ,
someone help! now hole 19 is the bar! so you could come up with something cute with it! I'll get back to ya if i figure it out

I like that idea. Maybe with his name and date of birth/death and have it say I'd Rather Be Golfing right under it or around it or something.

What about a golf ball with angel wings with his name in it? I like the idea of just a golf ball with his name on it but I think if you put angel wings it would be a nice touch.
Good luck.

Something similar to this looking over a golfer or a man carrying a golf bag or swinging a club might be nice. Where the baby is, it could be changed to a golf green, and the golfer on the green.

I like it. I am not sure where to get mine done on me. I was going to get it on my shoulder but I decided not to. I don't want it showing when I get married. I already have one tattoo to cover up for that.

Yeah, mine is on my left ankle. I think the ankle is a good choice!

I like that idea too. My first thought was add a halo, but wings work too, or both maybe.

I really like the last one but maybe add some angel wings to it too! But you have to like it, so.. make it mean something to you! Good luck! I've been drawing one up for my mom for 10 years now! I'm too picky!
