    I see all these threads about tattoos and mentioning tribal as being one of the lowest forms of tattoo. And I agree. Its just black, got waaay too trendy, and people just got them to be getting a tattoo.

    But at the same time, I wear a rather large one. I got the name of my MMA club across my back when I got my black belt. It was my first tattoo, and I was in a huge rush to get it, and I didn't notice when the artist mocked it up that it was really too small. Years later, I wanted something to accentuate the letters, to make them seem way more important, without overpowering them or detracting from them.

    I worked back and forth with my artist to really get what I wanted, and I like it. I just wanted to see what everyone else thinks.

    Cliffs: Rate my tribal, bitches.

    Better question is, "Do you like it?"

    I like the tribal better than the lettering. hard to tell if it is very symmetric from that picture.

    you might want to try an uploading site like Photobucket. That site is wayyyy too annoying.

    Ya, I like it a ton, and really, nothing you guys say is gonna make me not like it. I was just reading the "Koi is the new tribal" thread and wanted to get an opinion.

    i kind of like it. it's different than a lot of tribal i've seen. soemthing seems a bit off about the letters but maybe that's just because i'm seeing them in reverse.

    then again, i'm probably not as quick to diss tribal as some are (see my thread...i've got a couple tribal-ish pieces).

    okay okay...I know I'm skinny as fuck. Thank a disease that caused my gut to explode and docs had to rip out a couple or thirty feet of my intestines. Its damn near impossible for me to gain weight.

    The symmetry of the tribal verses the asymmetry of the name bother me.

    I'd agree with a few of the others, nice looking tat, but the tribal and letters don't really flow all that well together.

    I don't like tribal at all but it looks well done..... except the lettering sucks. It doesn't match the tattoo. I prob ably would have gone with a much different font or had the letters tattooed somewhere else on my body.

    The letterinng breaks the tattoo IMHO.

    edit: I see the lettering was done before the tribal. Oh well.

    its not bad, it seems to fit well on your back. I don't think tribal tats look bad I just think their over done. but I have Japanese stile work and that’s turned out to be pretty trendy as well. if you like it then its cool, I mean it's not like its a Tasmanian devil or barbed wire :ugh:
