I'm thinking of getting some more tats over the next few months. I was wondering if anyone here was really artistic and if they were bored or interested, possibly come up with some design ideas for me.
Some things I'm am contemplating getting but want a creative design that embodies the meaning...
I want to get "HiiiPower" put on and was thinking of having the 3 dots on the "iii"s become jewels on a tilted crown. But I just want it to be more than just having "HiiiPower" just thrown on in calligraphy.
Another phrase I want to get put on is "Prove Them Wrong". Open to any suggestions with creatively emboding that.
When you are asking us for suggestions, I think it is safe to say, you should probably not get a tattoo, lol. Nonetheless, I personally think most of those are bad ideas. Why do you want a crown tattoo? I just question why when it seems to be done so often. You down with the monarchy? You feel you are a king? I am not calling you out, just raising questions behind the meaning (Question Everything, lol).
Man, I think you know what you want, I have no ink and do not mind if people do. Still, I think tattooing a song might be slightly regrettable, even though it is dope. Why "Temptations"? Just curious. We all have them, I suppose, but why tattoo that word on yourself? Really like the musical group?
What about "I am going to regret this later"? Lol, sorry man, I am sure your ink is cool, but I just cannot be incredibly impressed by most tats, especially on dudes. Sorry I could not give better suggestions, and I definitely do not feel I am artistic in this particular field. I suppose I would more than likely either tat the "GangStarr" logo or something to that extent if I were to get one. But, I think that tattoos seem to be something that kind of grow old. My only ultimate suggestion would be, get a tat of the NBADraft.net logo. If you did that, I would have unlimited props for you.
Listen to what I said man. I know the things I want. I have gotten tattoos before and don't regret any of them. I am just looking for different ways to display the things I want tatted on. Im not saying I'm taking just any suggestion, I'm just looking for diff ideas. Nothing wrong with that. I'm not stupid, and I don't need to be preached to about tattoos.
I take a while to consider what I want to put on, its not a split second decision. I respect you MikeyV, but the last thing I need is someone to tell me about how I shouldn't ask for suggestions about tattoos when I am giving the suggestion, just looking for unique designs for them.
The crown of the 3 iii's is b/c the 3 iii's in HiiiPower represent the Father, Son, and Holyspirit. Thats why Kendrick Lamar did that. HiiiPower is a concept that he came up with that you can read more about and I support it 100%. I'm don't just come up with the crown out of nowhere.
Temptations means alot to me. Overcoming different obstacles in my life where I have certainly been tempted to head down a diff route. Temptations by 2pac is one of my favorite songs as well. Its also something I could look at a difficult time to help tell myself to consider my actions here and not give into temptations.
And my tats aren't to impress you or anyone else. I always liked tattoos and I only get ones of things that mean alot to me and I have considered them for a while.
Question Everything is something I am 100% positive i wanna get thrown on at somepoint, its just a matter of how (design).
When I was younger, I kind of accepted everything at face value. Believed everything my parents, teachers, friends told me for the most part. Upon my senior year of HS and entering college, I really began to do some self-discovering and realized that what I feel is the truth, is not always what I have been told. And those whoo people say are absolutely wrong at times, are not always right.
Religion, Politics, Drugs, morales...things of this nature have def. changed in my eyes since I began to "Question Everything"
Dude, I am glad you've discovered yourself spiratually, buti still don't think you shouldget a tat. I know it'll look cool now, but I don't think they'll look good when you're older.
Dude, I am cool with it if you are man. Just a little surprised you mentioned nothing about my NBADraft.net idea. Seriously though, just kind of wondered the significance of these things. I am glad you like your ink, I just know some people who seem to tattoo things without thinking them through, but you are a perceptive dude. Should have known better, but I like your explanations.
I feel no need to have tats, at least at this point in my life, but if they make you happy and have meaning to you, or anyone else who chooses to get them, than I am all for it. Was looking more at the "open to suggestions" part rather than the design part. You have every right to ask, but I was just giving my thoughts based on what was given. We have some creative cats on here, but I am guessing if you ran these by actual tattoo artists, you might get more success, brother.
let the man get what he wants
i dont like tatoos at all but if he wants one
then thats his choice
For all those saying I don't think you should get a tat...I already have some. The sins have already been committed.
As far as the nbadraft.net tat...I think that goes against both of our beliefs lol. When I'm on my death bad at 65, I don't wanna be thinking about u guys lol.
And I hear people say all the time what about how it looks when your old. Honestly, I don't give a crap what I look like when I'm old. All I care about is not sh*ting my pants and having to have someone clean it for me. That and still being able to have the soldier stand tall.
Yea, thing is usually if you run them buy actual artists, they charge you.
I have a guy I go to who does whatever I want done for $20, but I have to have it sketched already. Thats a hell of a deal considering my first tat was $250 and probably only like 6" by 4". She did a hell of a job though, by far the best one. She was pretty damn sexy so I tipped her too.
Dude, I never said "Don't get a tat!" All I was trying to say is, I hope you thought it through well, which you have. The funny thing is, saying you do not want to be thinking about us, what would you be thinking about when you looked at this tattoo designed by someone from the forum? Also, are you not going to remember bringing up these tattoos and this discussion years from now? We will haunt you, FOREVER!!!! BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Hope you live past 65 though, cause no one should be on a death bed at that age.
Not u, Mikey. That was at aamir.
And the death bed @ 65 was an exaggeration, but I honestly don't wanna live too far past like 70-75. What the hell would you do. No basketball, no being active, just chillin 24/7. IDK if I could handle that. I would need alot of substances to stay happy if that was the case.
And I'm not going to take the exact design. I'm just looking for ideas more or less. I'd probaby expand them myself.
im not good at drawing or anything but Im bored so i can try to make you some designs
It is all perspective though. I once heard this motivational speaker, he had a great way of looking at things that makes me think I will be hopefully (though not definitely) cool with growing older. The guy had been paralyzed, incredibly badly burnt, his life pretty much sucked. But, he said it was not about the 10,000 things he could not do, but all of the things he could do. Especially with our generation, we will always have the internet and activities like writing about basketball. Life would definitely not be AS fun, but their would still be things to live for. Getting old does suck though, so I feel you on not wanting to be TO old, but I think it could be aight.
Have you ever thought of getting your favorite animal with a word bubble saying one of the things you have decided to get? Like a dolphin saying "Don't Worry Be Happy"? LOL, sorry man, I just cannot seem to take this task as seriously as I should. I know I have given little to f#ck all help, but I am glad to know why you are getting the tats you are getting. That is cool. Question Everything is a great concept, but I think you could come up with a different phrase that could be cooler. Though, if it is you, it is you. I am thinking maybe you could even have a question mark with a globe inside of it, or something to that extent to represent that. Also, with "Temptations", as dumb as this might sound, having a Cola Bottle Baby might not be the worst thing to represent.
I have one of my deceased dog with a 2 qualities I think people should always possess, that he possessed as well.
For Question Everything my idea is kind of similar. I was thinking having like the question mark from the Riddler (that wide curvy green question mark) in the middle with Question Everything wrapped around it.
I think I might go with that eventually but I'm taking time to ask around for ideas and try to figure out what I feel would be the best way to go about getting it done. I take a while to make sure all my tats are something I will be happy with for the rest of my life.
I think that Cola bottle baby is an interesting route to go. Def. stuff to consider. All suggestions are appreciated. I just like hearing different peoples ideas b/c then it makes me expand my thinking as well.
Well I think this thread was made to give suggestions towards creative forms of a tattoo to express certain phrases...I think. So here goes nothing.
I like the "Question Everything" phrase. Maybe you could get that written in cursive writting with a bunch of question marks exploding from the background of the cursive writting.
A saying I use daily derives from one youve probally heard before, "Think Outside The Box", but instead I like to say "What Box?". Boxes are for hobos...to live in, not for people to think in! If you really want something unique just get a tat of a hobo living in a box with bold letters stating, THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX! Perfect, when you get it done post some pics lol.
Or "I'm not as drunk as you think i am"
or have a baby crawling out of your butt
Scottoant93, That looks pretty damn sick. Appreciate u taking the time to do that. I like the touch of the hands as well and love that calligraphy. I'll seriously consider that or something eerily similar to it. You got some talent. I'm a decent artisit and have create some of the makeup of my tats, but I have trouble making hands like that.
Glad you like it , but im not gonna lie,sadly im not an artist by any means, i traced the hand pattern, shaded the letters and question mark.. I just arranged everything togather(the only part i can take credit for)...heres the drawings and links i used
tattoolettering.net/ The lettering style is called Blade 2,text size 100
Nice again man. Whether your tracing or not, it still is pretty damn impressive. I like the crown with the wings alot to and i think its a nice touch to the iii concept of hiiipower. It's much appreciated man.
