Its actually very nice..

But theres to much space at the right so i'll give this a 9

the way it was scanned, the picture didnt come out right, but thx

It's okay

For a tattoo you would need the entire subject matter to be inside the picture.
If this is a scan from a sketch book, as it looks like, it would be better to run the picture through a art program to crop the extra white space, and at the very least auto adjust the scan. Also the top of the scroll should really have a line, as is the eye has to imply the edge. The side of the scroll rolled up on the right is squished and conflicts with the implied thickness of the roll on the left, try making it a bit more circular, and that will help continue your theme a bit better.

I see lots of potential, and you should keep practicing, but the current execution is sloppy and shows little effort.

killa1b responds:

Thanks, and btw, I actually put alot of effort into this. I'm new to ink and I've been experimenting with different techniques. I erased the lines on purpose just because of that, so your eyes can imply the line. Obviously, a line wasn't needed because when you look at the picture your eyes draw it for you.
