I am looking for a good idea for a tattoo as I am new at giving them so something decently simple would be great. I also want to thank you for letting me join the group :)

I would like to share with others who wish to draw flash.

To help with your art, I will suggest this. When learning an artistic style, I follow the trivium method of learning.

Step 1 break down the style into it's most basic elements, example, does that style use lines, what kind of lines, specific colors, specific kind of shading et cetera. Create a theory of how you believe that style may be captured in it's most basic form. Step two, practice your theory and see the results, does your theory work in practice. If you have to cheat your theory to make the design work, then you need to return to step 1. Once successful, move onto step 3. Step 3, teach others, your theory so they may apply this theory in practice as well. When you teach others, your brain has to rationalize and communicate in language what you may already intuitively know, this deepens our understanding of the subject. Also people ask creative questions which throw angles at your theory which you will have to rationalize and overcome, this further deepens our understanding of the subject.

An example of this is traditional American style of tattoo design. The style uses one line weight for the whole design, as in one line thickness throughout. The lines must convey the image in it's simplest form, if less lines can communicate the information, then reduce the amount of lines until you are at its most basics. The design has heavy black shading , so 1/3 the design must be completely black shading. Then shade the basic colors off the Black shading (making tones of color). 1/3 the design will be colored (pure color), in basic colors, such as yellow, red, blue green. Keep the color pallet limited. Make sure to leave 1/3 of the design open (no color), the open areas will look like the bright areas of color(tints), in a tattoo this would be open areas of skin.

The reason, (in my humble opinion) I believe that this style (American Traditional) developed this way ,(simplified version) was because at the time (1900-1960 America) tattooist only used one size round needle, with electric machines (running fast), working very fast, using a very limited color palate (all that was available at the time), so they developed art that would apply quickly to the skin, providing maximum effect most efficiently. The real world result were that clients were in and out quick, for cheap, at a time when tattooing was not considered cool. Everyone was happy enough and a Tattooist could make a living in a difficult time (as opposed to today).

Hope this helps.
