    Ok here is the story...

    I got a black and red nautical star on my shoulder. I got it when I was young and stupid. I still like it but it looks really boring.
    I'd like to "do something with it". Maybe add some tribal design or add a skull...I'm up for anything really.

    Do I just ask local tattoo artists to see what they can draw up for me? Is that how I would go about creating a custom design around the nautical star?

    I don't have any experience working 1 on 1 with a tattoo artist so any help would be appreciated.

    And I know i might get flammed for this so i'm prepared...but any constructive advice would be great

    Please no tribal. Do just what you said and go talk to an artist and between the two of you guys you should be able to come up with something.

    most people who pick tribal pick it because they don't know what else to get.

    when people come in my shop and say "i wanna get this piece of tribal around this on my shoulder" first thing i ask is "why did you pick tribal? any special reason??" and i'd say 90% of the time the answer is "i just wasn't sure what else I could get... have any suggestions?"

    I usually show them some other examples of stuff they could get and they completely change their mind. :dunno: I don't hate tribal, I just think there's much better things people could put on their bodies.
