hi pit, first of all i know there's a thread for tattoos, but as far as asking someone to make me a design i didn't think it'd go in there. let me know if i'm wrong.

simply put i just want a design for my next tattoo. i'm wanting a Celtic cross on my upper left arm. and below it i want a banner w/ "Dum spiro spero" (family motto, "While i breath i hope")

the cross i don't want too extravagant as far as the celtic knots go, b/c the more you try to squeeze into the cross, the easier it'll be for it to look messy. i'm sure yall know what i'm tryin to say with this.


i prefer this:


as opposed to this:


you see how this second one has a lot more knots and just too extravagant for me.
i really would love one just like the first only w/o the rose. i already have a rose on my right arm in my GNR tat, so having another on the other arm would be overkill on the roses....so if anyone could make something up for me that'd be great. i'd like it in black and white so that i could easily print it off. and in case you're wondering why i don't do it myself, i suck at trying to do celtic knots. any help is appreciated

I see you like celtic designs. I have a few I made up, however i doubt they would looks nice as a tatoo.

Why don't you just have the first one without the rose?

^yes i know.

to bass-man,

i DO want the first one W/O the rose, but i don't know where i could get a sketch or outline of it without the rose. i like how garguatan just inversed my second picture lol.

but seriously, if anyone could mock up a cross just like the first w/ same design only w/o the rose, that'd be awesome. i'd be afraid of screwin it up...

but if nothing else i WILL go to a tattoo artist and talk to them about it also.
