Need some Tattoo help. 2013-03-19 15:30:00 Reply

Hey everyone!

I am getting a tattoo done soon and I was working on a few ideas. I currently have something drawn up that I wish to use but I need some help putting the two together. The first is the Font of my name. The second is a crown I drew. I can't seem to make them both work together in the same picture. If someone is willing to help that would be great! If needed change the font or crown I just need something that will work with both together.

Thanks!

I didn't put much time into this, since I just woke up, but I wanted to show you the basic gist of what I was thinking.
Place the crown over top of your name, and enlarge it so that the base of the crown is in line with the same width as your name.

Doesn't matter about the effort, since there's not many other options.
MeowolaSS's integration of the text is as exciting as you're going to get it - yet you've already tried it.
There's not much else you can do with it, other than wrapping the crown with the text.

You've drawn the crown and you've tried options (that we can't see), you're more than capable of coming to a decision on your own.

I jazzed it up a bit with calligraphy making it kind of look like a brand of alcohol right now :p
high-res
May I suggest that, unless you're making pixel art, you work in a higher resolution (at least > 600x600px). Especially when working with designs ;)
I'd think that any proper tattoo parlor has skilled artists that would eagerly help you out with the design. If not then you'd probably want to go somewhere else...
What compels you to have your own name tattooed on yourself?

This came off fantastically toolish to me.
"Someone give my your ideas, for free."
"These ideas aren't good enough, try harder. I want my free ideas to be GOOD."
"Waaah, I'm self entitled."

I started to photoshop it all on the side of a big fat cock, but then decided it wasn't worth the time. At least TRY to show a little respect to people who use their time helping you. You do know everyone has a finite amount of it right?

Maybe I'm just feeling sensitive today, who knows.

Hey excellent work on those ideas guys! I don't mind if it is redrawn at all either. What I posted was just what I came up with and I was not to happy. As for why I want my name... I want a tattoo but don't know what else to get haha.

It always seems a little uninventive to have your name tattooed on yourself, at least I've always thought so. I'd give it some deeper thought before you take the (big) step and make it permanent. If you don't limit yourself to this crown and your name, perhaps you'll come up with some cooler ideas... Like a plug making sweet love to a socket, with the words "Socket to me".

(Don't do that. I was making a point about being creative.)

That's sort of my point. Your tattoo shouldn't be up to me, I'm saying you should give it some more personal thought and come up with something you like. You don't want to look at your tattoo every day for the rest of your life and think about how it was all Rumsworth's idea.
