    I have been toying with an idea to cover an old tiny shoulder tattoo I got when I was 18.
    It is a 4 leaf clover in memory of my hschool bfriend that passed away. Problems are: It is cheesy, I am not Irish and it was done super shitty. Oh, and it clashes with all of my real work.

    I am debating on getting some sort of wings on my shoulder blades, one would obviously cover the clover.

    Problem is, I don't want it to be super cheesy, but I also do not want it to big. I have my left top arm done and plan to eventually bring it down to almost a half sleeve.

    I have seen Nicole Ritchies Angel wing Tattoos, and a few others. I probably would not even consider doing it if I did not want to cover this one up so bad.

    It is either that or orchids on my blades.

    Any opinions?

    OK: here are a few I was looking at. I am going to get one on each shoulder blade, and semi small. like 2 inches most likely. I am looking for the perfect wings and these are the best three I can find. I am going to have my guy make them custom, but has anyone seen any good ones? Even if they are not angel wings, I am toying with the idea of just wings.
    anyway, here are three I liked. Obviously, Nicole Ritchies are a little too umm... gay and I would darken them up a bit, but I like her placement.

    In the second one, I would not get the thing in between the wings and I would get them more seperated, smaller.

    In the last one, same thing. SHe has them on one shoulder, but I like the wings she used. They are a little too tribal...Also, I am thinking black and the color of pearl as colors...

    anyway, here is the one that is started on my arm. its the closest pic I had on my work comp of it, but you get the idea. I don't want the shoulder ones to clash bad with this. It is done in black, grey and read with dahlias in the gun.

    any input?

    Dont get wings those are so fucking played out and stupid. Look through some tattoo magazines get some ideas, if you have any artist friends see if they can come up with some ideas for you. Wings are so so so so so not okay.

    I have wings on my back, but they are more tribal looking and much bigger than what you are thinking of. I also agree with joy division about wasting your back. Now I have wings, lettering across my lower back and a really gay tribal tattoo under my neck and it just doesn't look right with random tattoos all over my back. I would like to get something done to kind of connect them, fill things in a bit.

    Did I mention I went to a shitty artist? Impulsive decisions FTL.

    The wings were supposed to be outlined, then shaded in the center but that came out pretty shitty and the lines on my lettering look pretty bad too. And before anyone asks, it does not say libra like the zodiac sign, it's latin.

    I think we all were asking more for a picture of the tattoo you want to get covered up so we can see its position coloring etc. had it faded at all?

    1. "You arm tat is fuckin sexy! :eek5:"
    Thanks about the arm tattoo, not finished yet.

    2."are you banging the guy from third eye blind?"
    ha...

    3. i will take a pic of the old one asap. yes its faded, shitty job done and the initials in it look they were written by a child. i hate it. The guy who works on me now is amazing at cover-ups though, so I am not worried about that.

    I find those very hot. And that one is very good, but there is one girl/artist at the place where I get my tatts. Her wings start down a little more. Curve all the way to the top of her shoulder blades. And curves all the way down to the tip. It was done in a more angelic/feminine way
