    Well?

    Trying to come up with some new, unique ideas... I've been looking through a lot of galleries but I'm mostly seeing variations on the same thing, ie the super common flame designs or just overly cartoonish looking graphics.

    I've been thinking some old school pinstriping designs would translate over perfectly for tatooting, I'm sure it's been done before but I haven't found any examples yet... anyone seen this done?

    Or other ideas? :bigthumb:

    Ive been looking for the same style without much luck on the net. Some of the Rockabilly car site have had some cool ideas. I picked up a mag called Car Kulture Deluxe and ive gotten some pretty good ideas out of it too. Check out the rod and custom style mags too.

    Ive been considering doing my back with a Roth/Von Dutch style pinstripe piece, I have some clippings out mags to inspire me, but Id rather draw my own.

    I knew what I wanted exactly, told him and her drew it and inked it. :)
    Only thing is that I wanted black and white, but he offered color for free to get pics for his portfolio, and it sounded good to me. I love it! :bigthumb:

    I was looking through those mags too, definately a good source of ideas...

    Agree about discussing ideas with the artist, I need to find out who's good around here to begin with and then if anyone is experienced with that style of art... I just moved so I have no clue on what different shops' rep is (wonder if there is a way to research that online as well?)

    HPS, nice pistons, nice urinals. :big grin:
