Sawyer's tree

Tuesday, October 9, 2007

I'm getting the itch for more ink. I'm calling the artist tomorrow to schedule a time to go in and talk to her about my design. I'm planning to do my tree tattoo for Sawyer next. I drew up a rough sketch tonight that I'm somewhat happy with, but I'm hoping she can add her own touch to it to make it ten times better. It needs shading and more depth.

If you look closely, you can see Sawyer's name in the roots. I'm not sure if I really like the placement of it, but I know I want his name in there somewhere.

This will be on my upper arm/shoulder, with the trunk and roots on my bicep and the branches cascading up and over my shoulder.

Your design just screams jealousy, from me of coarse. I can't believe you just sat down and did it in a few hours. I'm always amazed at your artistic creativity whether it be your sewing, art or whatever else comes up. Also I'm jealous over the fact that you've already got at least one of your tattoos. I'm so picky and don't know exactly what I want so every time you talk about the new ones you are getting it makes me want one evermore. I love it.

Are you going to stick to just black or do you think you'll include a little touch of color when she enhances the shading?

awesome design. I really like how you incorporated Sawyer's name in there. But I had the same question as Jaclyn, are you going to add color or leave it b&w?

That is gorgeous Alicia! I have my two printed out and waiting for me to take to an artist. B wants me to wait until I wean R though, and since there is no rush, I figure I can at least honor that request (since he is the most supportive man I know when it comes to BFing).

I think the trunk and branches will be black and gray, and then I may add some greenery in the leaves and swirls. :)
