    Hey everyone, I'm wanting to get a tattoo that illustrates a couple concepts that I have found important in my life over the years. Where I fall short is that I am completely inept in artistic ability.

    Here are the things I want to somehow get illustrated:
    1) Be true to who you are
    2) Love wins
    3) Everyone is a hypocrite one way or another

    I've tried to figure out how I can get one or a couple of these concepts depicted as images, but my mind just doesn't think in that direction. I'm not asking for someone to draw me out something, but has anyone else gone through something like this and ended up with some art they really liked? Thanks for any input :wiggle:

    Best advice

    Figure out a style your looking for (traditional, japanese, bionic, etc)
    Find an artist who does said style
    Bring them your ideas and have them draw something up

    Worst case scenario you don't like what they draw up and have them do something different

    This will at least give you an idea of something you like/dislike

    If they're worth dealing with, they'll be fine with it. If they do a couple and you don't like them, they may refer you to someone else who is more your style.

    this is true but be careful cuz some of them are just straight up dicks if you dont like the first drawing they do.

    i like script a lot so you could pick out some lyrics or a poem or a quote or a passage from your fav book etc.

    the only thing i could think of for those given themes is for the hypocrisy thing you could have the drama faces
