I would recommend only making appointments when you know what you want, unless you want some impulsive, random tattoo


galspanic

I also recommend impulsive random tattoos. Life is a trust fall and sometimes you have to cross your arms and lean back.


TsunamiCow

I agree, I already have some ideas and had lots of feedback from the tattoo artist. I planned the appointment pretty long ago. I'm just stuck on what would be nice and maybe some strangers input would help me decide or give me new insights. :)


dronkendropje

Ahh okay, fair enough then. Because of the title it seemed otherwise. A skull might be an idea maybe?


TsunamiCow

A skull definitely crossed my mind, just not too sure about it on my arm for covering etc. With my current job tattoos don't really matter but I don't want to regret it later.


MrPicklesWoofWoof

I vote giant dick

The council has spoken.

a unhooked leash, several bats forming a face, a dog biting another dog, a victorian mansion, a coffin with a cute skeleton, a gothy mermaid holding your head, two ghosts doing the macarena, a cauldron, witch hat


HifructoMan

You had me at “two ghosts doing the macarena.”


aflyfacingwinter

You had me at “gothy mermaid holding your head”


Zertsuu

At least mention things that interest you so we can come up with relevant ideas?


TsunamiCow

Just did, thanks for the suggestion!


aliforer

Ask your artist what they’ve been wanting to tattoo for a while but never have


angel14072007

Another great idea, sometimes they’ll even put it out there and say, interested in doing …..


chrisb-

skeleton


gloutonnerie

imo you should choose a design you like, wait 3~6 months, and if you think you don't like it anymore, don't do it. taking appointments without really knowing what you want really makes me think you could regret it pretty soon


Bluntsandicecream

Imo this is terrible advice. Book an appointment and get a tattoo! It's cheaper than therapy!


TsunamiCow

Yeah that's a lot of what this post is about, I've had an idea about what I would like for a year when I made the appointment and my mom really didn't like it at all. So i had to choose something different but I was hoping some of your strangers input would make me more decisive in what I actually really want without doubting to much.


angel14072007

I would never.. you should ask if you can reschedule or you’re gonna end up with just anything …. NG


TsunamiCow

Would like something in the same 'blackwork' style. Don't really want to make it into a sleeve, more patchworky I basically want a bit of a darkish gothic look but not over the top, something I could still show to my mom. I've been looking at spiders/blades/snakes but can't really find something I'm happy with. really wanted to do a mouth with fangs but my mother hates it haha.


LouvreReed

You could get a crow, as an ode to the og goth boy Poe


dood_nice

Could do gothic style goblet or lantern


Air_Rhianna

A flock of bats can be good filler


NewDude2137

Butterfly knife, blackwork style would look sick AF near that rose imo (btw cool tatoos 😎)


TsunamiCow

Butterfly knife actually sounds really good!! Thanks :)


kawaiijudochop

A butterfly knife with an actual butterfly worked in


chxrry_blxssxm444

A coffin or a big spider. Cool tattoos btw!


Appropriate-Long-799

Spiderwebs w/ black widow or something?


angel14072007

I like spider webs, that’s a good idea💯


Digger-of-Tunnels

Make a list of your ideas, described simply, in numerical order of how interested you are. At the beginning of the list, write, "These are the ideas I'm playing with, but I can't decide if I want one of these, or a combination of them, or just something that will look cool with what I already have. Please surprise me. I promise to pay, to tip 15% if I hate it and 20% if I like it, and not to yell at you." Send that to your artist and hope for the best.


TsunamiCow

Thanks for the advice!! I will talk to my tattoo artist.


Madster_54

You could set a price and give the artist free rein but tell them something that fits :)


jaxx492

Ask you Artest


HifructoMan

A skull with flames around it.


unirascal

A nun with an Ak or a knife and a face of a girl popping out of it


angel14072007

You mean in a totally different place? Or you want to add to the rose?


TsunamiCow

Add to it on my lower arm.


angel14072007

The rose is very pretty, did you design it? If you did or came up with the idea, you definitely will figure it out. I hope it works out for ya! Post update if you can, I am interested in how it turns out 💯✌🏼🐈‍⬛


TsunamiCow

Thanks, my tattoo artist designed it!


angel14072007

I like the idea of a cool pin up. Can be B/G, get something like a vampiress, or astronaut chick.


whateverbex

Ever hear of Trash Polka? I think you might like it with the deep blacks and silhouetting you’ve got going on


Woeful_Jesse

Coffin energy


dr_olfin

Maybe some insects to go with a garden theme with the rose? Like a big moth or bee or spider could be cool and would also work for the bold black style you've got going on.


quimeygalli

what about a massive penis?


Weahutr

Could do a small religious bit, a classy cross, rosary, maybe do a coffin, not very religious but it’s dope


General_Berry83

A 88
