so i'm getting a half sleeve, when i have the money, and my current idea is as follows

i love traditional japanese style, and i also love landscape/nature/wave tattoos

im thinking of either

1. incorporating minus the bear's planet of ice album artwork into a wave/tradition japanese style tattoo

or

2. blending the snowscape of the album together to form a half sleeve.

i like this idea because it combines my favorite band for many years (using a subtle reference) with the kind of tattoos i like

i want to know if the average everyday UG poster think it is a lame idea, or something that has potential. the few people i had asked so far didnt have much to say, so before i ask the rest of my friends i wanna see what people think.

heres a picture of the artwork

That would be pretty clustered, would take a very skilled artist, and would be very expensive.

Besides, a tattoo is supposed to say something more personal about yourself than just your favorite band.

i think you should take it to the body mod thread

buttt, as for me, well to be honest I don't think that will turn out well as a sleeve tattoo....I can't picture scenery as being a good idea for a design

Dude, don't get a band tattoo, if in the future you stop liking them, you're screwed.

Tattoo's don't have to have some deep hidden meaning. I don't know why everyone thinks this....

you have a pretty bad taste in tattoos.

If you know a phenomenal tattoo artist then that could look amazing, but I'd think the vast majority of tattooists would end up making that look like crap.

It's not, actually. You can get a tattoo for any number of reasons.

Anyway, I think the idea has merit, but it wouldn't look good as a tattoo. Good looking tattoos are generally things that have a lot of concrete detail, such as lines, edges, definitive minor details, and things of that nature. That landscape seems a bit bland and has too much subtle detail to turn out that well as a tattoo. Sorry man.

Because if you're like most people and are limited to where you can have tattoos, you can't just go on a whim and tattoo something on yourself that you may not care for months, or even years down the road. The guys that have done my brother's tattoos won't even do tribal tattoos because they are, quite frankly, a waste of ink.

This, of course, is just my opinion.

I think tattoos suck



then why would you bother to give your opinion to TS about his particular tattoo idea, if you don't like tattoos at all.....

i think if you really want to get a tattoo then don't ask other peoples opinions
get something you like and stick with it (as if you could do anything else)

Well I plan on getting a tat of the band that got me into music and guitaring because of them I made it to where Iam.

So dude I say shoot for it.... Maybe a little simpler but just think about it for awhile.

You have to think really hard before getting one. Is it something that you want stuck to you for the rest of your life? I have two on my back.

and yours would be better how? id like to see what kind of tattoos you think are leagues better then japanese style. and if you say biomechanical, pin-ups, tribal, new school, or fantasy then none of those are better then the other, its just a matter of opinion

well, I was just saying that I don't think tattoos have to REPRESENT something special, thats all. but yeah, they should be meaningful to you, at least.

and agreed that tribals are a waste of ink.

You are entitled to your opinion as much as I am, so I'm sorry if I came off too strong on that.

As the person above started, it's art, therefore it's subjective to each person's own tastes.
