    Week 142: Contest From The Newb

    Trust me, I was not looking at the place just because it was in Cali... That just happened to be. I was looking at it cause I googled Valkyrie Tattoo and forgot to set it on 'images' so the web sites came up instead. I saw it and decided to open in a new tab and check it out later. After scanning some nice Valk pics I remembered the opened tab, checked it out, and noticed they had some really nice black and white stuff. Doing a search for Nick Baxter as we speak now though.

    Week 142: Contest From The Newb

    legion: Don't I know it. When i was explaining my idea to my NCO and he told me about the Arryan connection I was like 'What. In. The. Fuck.' I dont follow stuff like that so it wsa deffinently news to me. Wykd: Thanks for the personnel message, I found his site and sent a contact email, if I don't hear back soon I'll just stay late one day and call there. I also accidently stumbled upon a shop in Cali that looks pretty damn promising called Valkyrie or something. I am doing as you all suggested though and just branching out looking for artists and shops. I would love the opportunity and reason to visit somewhere like Cali. The crazy thing is legion, is that I want to add more to it. I want to make it an Epic if I can. From actual Valkyries, to maybe even battle ground stuff like bodies, disgarded swords, damage. Like I said, I want it to be unique, but I also want it to be badass.

    Week 142: Contest From The Newb

    I honestly am not looking for the cheap way out. I just want something that is quality. I have done some searches and have already written quite a few people, and gotten some responses already.Excited to get back now. Wykd if you know any artists that excel in this area please help me find them, as google searches for different combinations of key words is not giving me desired results.

    Week 142: Contest From The Newb

    Well, it seems I have been shown the error of my ways. While I was just trying to be original, generous, and competitive, it seems some/alot of people take offense to this kind of thing, so I suppose someone should just delete this topic because it apparently is not going anywhere. I would like to know where and who I should talk to to get some help with this as I do want it to be done. Wykd: Detailed and large. I had planned this to be a full back peice, and as it might be my first and last, I want it to be extremly memorable. Also a friend of mine recently mentioned that the nordic/viking thing could be construed as Arian in nature (apparently the Army has regulations against it as well..) and as I am not Arian and I want no affiliation with such groups I will or the artist will have to do that in a way that it could never be seen to be apart of any group.

    Ok.. That I understand. I really hadn't thought about it from that point of view and once put like that I can see the frustration, and degredation that can be viewed from my method mentioned about. Nippy: Yes, as a reference, good, as basically a tracing paper.. Not good. At the time (keep in mind I was alot younger) I was really into Anime and Marvel Comics. I really wanted to get a tattoo of Broly the Legendary Super Sayain, brutally murdering The Incredible Hulk on my back. The guy wanted me to get a google image of Broly and the Hulk and digitally send them too him where he would Photoshop it, print and trace it, add some gore, and call it done. No. For something like that I was looking for originallity, not other peoples ideas put together. To give you an idea of what I am looking for here is an excerpt from another of my topic on this forum: The 'elements' of this tattoo are (not good with words it seems today..) Lion Snake Fire Viking/Nordic warrior The 'flavor' should be: Celtic/Irish/Nordic I am virgin skinned and have been wanting to get a tattoo, and have thought long and hard as to what I might want. I know as a person I will be constantly changing throughout life, and want to make sure I get something I can always connect with, will always be proud to show, and will never get tired of. The Lion is my Astro sign. Although I do not put much stock in that Astrology stuff, I have always fealt a deep connection to lions; their pride and majestic-ness. Snake is my Chinese sign, and again not much stock in that stuff, but physically I am quite slippery, can be very devious, and can strike with great speed (physically and mentally). Fire is my 'element', and again I might not put stock in such things, but again fire does soother my soul, and constantly fascinates me with its intensity and strength. The Viking/Nordic warrior comes directly from my inner self. I have ALWAYS felt the pull of the warriors spirit, and believe that had I lived in Ancient times, I just might have been one bad m-efer. Celtic, Irish, and Nordic style tattoo have always drawn me for their great detail and how they standout. I helps that I am pretty much full blooded Irish (unfortunately got a little German in me...or fortunately? We'll never know.).

    Unfortunately this has been tried (you should know that while sometimes some things escape me, I am not completely an idiot.), and unfortunately the tattoo studios in my area are either run by assholes, or unwilling to put any kind of effort or originality to my design ideas. I had one guy, way back when, tell me that I should print a picture up from Google, so that he could trace it and tattoo it like that. Hell. No. Sorry, might sound a little cruel or maybe shallow, but nothing is getting put on me from a friggen Google search. Of the 10 or so tattoo shops I have been in in East Texas (Longview, Tyler area) at least 4 of them didn't want to inform me on the process and or basically ask any questions, 2 of them were run by people who were basically of the opinion the money mattered more then the artwork, of course the one who tried to sell me some crack, the one who wanted me to Google the drawing, and the last just not really giving me a good vibe. I liked some of the stuff I saw while I was in Germany, but ended up getting into that scene a couple weeks before I moved. I have not had the best of luck with Tattoo shops. Which is why I am trying Forums now. Dislike as you will, but I do have my reasons.

I will still give the top 3 the 200$ but split. 1st getting the most, 2nd and 3rd getting the lest (obviously.) letaa: ooops... Lol had no idea. i tried to pick up on the customs be reading a few other contests, but the few I read seemed to putter out.. (Geisha, Monkeys). I would like to get maximum eyes on this contest, and would actually like to make it multi site, but have no clue how too do so.

    Week 142: Contest From The Newb

    Ok so.. This category REALLY fits into what I have been looking to do recently and really fits why I even joined this site. If I am in the wrong for posting here or have broken a rule, please at least read on and direct me correctly.. Or join in. If you read the last portion you MIGHT just want to join in. The 'elements' of this contest are (not good with words it seems today..) Lion Snake Fire Viking/Nordic warrior The 'flavor' should be: Celtic/Irish/Nordic Back story real quick like: I am deployed in Afghanistan and will be returning home in the next few month. I am virgin skinned and have been wanting to get a tattoo, and have thought long and hard as to what I might want. I know as a person I will be constantly changing throughout life, and want to make sure I get something I can always connect with, will always be proud to show, and will never get tired of. The Lion is my Astro sign. Although I do not put much stock in that Astrology stuff, I have always fealt a deep connection to lions; their pride and majestic-ness. Snake is my Chinese sign, and again not much stock in that stuff, but physically I am quite slippery, can be very devious, and can strike with great speed (physically and mentally). Fire is my 'element', and again I might not put stock in such things, but again fire does soother my soul, and constantly fascinates me with its intensity and strength. The Viking/Nordic warrior comes directly from my inner self. I have ALWAYS felt the pull of the warriors spirit, and believe that had I lived in Ancient times, I just might have been one bad m-efer. Celtic, Irish, and Nordic style tattoo have always drawn me for their great detail and how they standout. I helps that I am pretty much full blooded Irish (unfortunately got a little German in me...or fortunately? We'll never know.). While there will be the normal judging from the members as to which comes out best, there will also be a second contest. Whichever one I like the best, will not only win a $ prize, but also get the great honor of popping a we lads virgin skin cherry, as I will make great efforts to come to YOUR studio and PAY (this on top of the contest winnings) you to do this tattoo. If this is not doable (You do not have materials/licenses/don't like my breath) I will still give you the contest winnings, but then politely ask if I could use the original artwork at a tattoo studio, in which I will ask your advice to use. I don't want to do this though as it would seem to me to be rather insulting to take someones artwork and ask someone else to put it on me. What is the prize money you say? 200$ 1st 50$ runner up 50$ runner up To be paid Pay-pal. P.S. I know these things usually last a week, but with approval from members and mods, I think more time might be needed especially with the complexity of what has been asked for.

    I am new here and looking to pop my skins cherry. Looking for something specific, but do not know where I should ask here on the forum.. Just looking for an artist, and if I get what I want would be willing to travel to the studio to pay for the whole sha bang. I actually want to hold some sort of contest.. Will-pay-something-like-3-500$-for-the-person-who-can-use-the-elements-of-my-idea-and-make-something-awesome-kind-of-thing.. Where should I start for this? By the way my name is Shawn Collins, I am 23, Male, US Army (6 Years), deployed. I love music (mostly Electronic, followed closely by Rock and Country.) I love life, I love travel, I love honesty, I love randomness, and I love people. I also love art. All these 'loves' in there and you'd think I'm gay.. I am not gay (not there is anything wrong with that, or that I am into judging folks). I am single though and love long walks on the beach and unicorns. (joking.) Well that's me in a nut shell hope to get to meet and make some new friends here.
