Missed the opportunity to have them in his mouth Woodson-style, but you still need some roses in there somewhere
New Michigan tattoo
I have none and want none. But I have drawn a few for people in the past, and only the past, as I have since learned to refuse requests to put my artwork on people.
But I will say this:
Tattoos are like houses. They should be initially designed and created for completion, meaning if you wanted something to look a certain way, hold off and get the initial concept down before committing it to permanency. Most attempts to fix or elaborate this stuff always look post-factory, so to speak, and well, not very good.
If you were building a new home, you wouldn't skimp on costs and floorplan just to get it done quicker, only to build add-ons and extensions to the place later on, would you?
Thanks for the advice. The sketch was finished but we was not able to finish everything in one session. There is a risk of scarring if you spend too much time in one area. After seeing the Nore Dame idea on my arm, I decided to wait to figure out something better. The original idea was his body parts (arm, leg, tie, and hat) laying around him. It just looked out of place so I was bouncing around some other ideas. Everyone keeps talking about his right side looking out of whack. Again, the angle the picture was taken makes it look off. In reality, it is not. His stubby leg is supposed to make him look like he is on an incline. I have attached the original photo that we started with.
It's your arm and your money. Forget what any and all of us say and just get what you like. But if you can, sit down with the artist and make sure it's all understood what you want out of it, and get it all done in one fell swoop. Thing's gonna be there for a reeeel long time.
I will say this, I do like the Brutus head!!
I am not offended in any way to the comments. I really appreciate the constructive and positive comments. I am not ignorant enough to think I can post something like this on a forum and expect it to be all positive. If I wanted those type of comments, I would just take my wife's opinion. ha. I even told her that I wanted to take a different pic with a shirt on because someone would have something to say about that...lol. It is extremely difficult to find a "different" kind of tattoo involved with Michigan and I hope this may have inspired some ideas for those out there for those that may have always wanted a tattoo but had the same mind set as myself. After all, I have the creative juices of a pencil.
Tough crowd. But I guess, if you ask for comments you'll get a variety of opinions.
The tat is fine. If you're going to add things to it, make sure you consult your artist first so you can discuss size and placement.
My only question is: who the hell picks METH as a screen name?
Meth came from Method Man from Wu-Tang. When I was gaming a lot, I always used Methical as my screen name. I tried to use his alias "Panty Raider" but I kept getting kicked for a name change. Everyone called me Meth instead so it kinda stuck.
I always used Methical as my screen name.
It's Methtical. As in Tical.
Artist did a good job rendering the sketch for sure. Not something I would personally get, but then again i got one the day i turned 18 and haven't been interested since, so thats me. Do whatever you want man, people who worry about wal mart wolverines obviously dont see the msu, osu crap right next to ours. Being a huge comic book nerd in the really early 90's X Men is a classic. Im more of a victor creed fan, but looks good man
He's already got his foot up, you could just put the leprechaun underneath so that he's squashing him like a bug. Nice Tat.
What do you guys think? Too much?
I'm so happy for you and me all at the same time.
Lose the red.
Not sure why you didn't fill up those huge guns with more ink.
If you want to incorporate ND and you have his claws filled up already have you thought about making a bloody shamrock or ND helmet on the ground in front of him? Sorta like it was just punctured and left for dead.
Also, don't listen to the people being hard on it. Just make sure you get everything you want, cause that's gona be one big tattoo and will not come off easily
also u could slap a small block M on his chest for good measure
Perhaps a leprichan under the left foot.
Why is Wolverine stabbing a pizza with his right claw?
Dude you could have had Da Vinci himself put the Mona Lisa on your arm and people would hate it.
That would seem a bit beneath Da Vinci.
Well he was 6'4. Zing!
laser it, then start fresh with a rad tatt
That tattoo screams "Walmart Wolverine". It's your body, so you're obviously entitled to do whatever you want. But getting a tattoo of a school that you're a fan of is kind of stupid IMO. I have multiple degrees from UM and I would never get a tattoo of Michigan on my body. If one of my friends or classmates did, I'd probably make fun of them.
I feel the same about people tattooing their Greek letters and stuff as well.
A tattoo is a permanent reminder of a temporary impulse.
A tattoo is a permanent reminder of a temporary impulse.
Wow, narrow minded much? That may be true for some, but is hardly true for everyone that has tattoos, myself included.
I agree with the guy above that not everything is a temporary impulse. The entire premise of Greek life revolves around lifetime membership, so that would be the furthest from temporary.
I don't have tattoo's yet, but I do plan on getting a fraternity tattoo and also a Marine Corps tattoo, assuming I can complete OCS and get commissioned. I strongly feel that both of those easily pass an "impulse" test, and I'm sure other people have tattoo's more meaningful to them than either I described.
Have him kneeling on the ND Leprechaun. With his big leg. Add the decapitated Brutus and Sparty bodies laying to the sides. Just a suggestion.
You could always just have more heads laying around his feet with puncture holes. Maybe just a pile of skulls including all the B1G schools with ND on top or something.
Man, the Wolverines got a right ACL and MCL tear... thats gotta hurt
What is up with that left foot? Looks stumpy. Why is he stabbing a personal pizza?
You know what I want on my arm? A block M. Nothing else.
The Buckeye looks more like a pizza... my first thought was, why is Wolverine stabbing Sparty and a pizza?
Haters gonna hate... cool tatt bro. I once contemplated a Wolverine tatt myself. I think I'm going to get a block M with my GPA underneath it or a Phi Beta Kappa key in the background.
That puts my Threetidan tattoo to shame.
a tatoo of your avatar ... (chick with the football on her tits) That doesn't seem to have any flaws.
how about the animal - and not the cartoon?
I know this thread is dust, but I figured I'd put this in here because it seemed like a good spot. Got this about 6 months ago or so.
