...We Were Both Tattoo Artists?
Continuing with the theme, some individuals just wish that someone would notice them (or what they do at least), and have them think that you're cool or hardcore. I'm sure that's why some people get tattooed up: they want others to regard them with respect or awe. Tattoos are painful, no matter what the tough guy says, and therefore demand a certain measure of respect. If by the preceding couple of sentences you think that I am against tattoos, it's quite the opposite. I plan on getting a few later in life (when I've got enough money...and certainly not to impress anyone in particular.)
This one took awhile, I know, but I wanted to make sure it came out the way I really wanted it to. I had to experiment with how to fill out the tattoos to make them look just right. Then I wanted a good graphic background to go with it (kind-of tattoo oriented), and that took a bit of thinking and experimenting as well. But I think, overall, I'm satisfied with the end result. It looks almost perfect to the picture I had in my mind's eye when I set out to make this one (although any artist will tell you that it never comes out looking just how you want it to.)
