    So I'm looking at getting a tattoo of a triskelion on my upper back, below the neck/between shoulders. I have been able to find one pic of such a tattoo, and don't think it looks complete.

    As it is, it looks incomplete. I've thought about coloring, but IMO everything I've looked at would make it look cheesy. Possibly some shading work?

    Any ideas?

    :dunno: I think it looks fine in black as well... There's a lot you could do in terms of color, but I think it might just over-complicate it.

    It's rather clean and straight forward as is.

    it's too small, in my opinion it should be half as big again. just doesnt seem to "fit"

    I believe I agree. Coloring would overcomplicate it. Colorless it is.

    It's a simple symbol, and honestly I don't want it to overtake my back. If I add on in the future, I want it to be a flowing canvas, not a picture with that symbol overtaking everything else.
