|final revision on design
||[Jun. 2nd, 2002|04:29 pm]
I've been planning a tattoo design for my back for some time. Hopefully, I've got it down to a final cut. The plan is for an eight-inch square design centered on my back
Keeping the outlines of both bodies and the continuous hair one color is good. I want to say that the color of the dress should be different from the hair, but I cannot think of what to suggest other than a slightly lighter version of the hair (and that might be more of a pain for the tattoo artist). Besides, having both the hair and dress the same gives it more continuity. Just my 2pence.
I've got a t-shirt with this design on it from Orlando. It's not of much help to the above because all the lines are grey on a black background.

i've repaired the design considerably
I contemplated (but did not purchase) a t-shirt with this design in New Orleans, and then found a stamp with the design in Mystic this past weekend. The design needed considerable repair, since I believe the original in the Book of Kells was someting like an inch big and very asymmetric. I like the design because of the gender-ambiguity and the relational-ambiguity (are they wrestling? Intimate?). I envision them as two women, most days. I sometimes think it's a depiction of Gemini, (which would be a little weird since I'm aquarius) but whatever. It's the liking the design part that counts, I think.

Re: i've repaired the design considerably
Right. I can see all of that in there. It was my girlfriend who pointed out that it was two women (!).
I sometimes see them as lovers, sisters, friends, and two parts of the same whole (Gemini, as myself).
The new revised image looks great. Good luck with all those hours in the chair.
I think that's going to come out quite nicely. I rather like it. Well done. :)
now we can both be in post-tattoo itchies... :)
I really like it! It looks good as your new icon too.
I like the icon, but I'm unsuer what mood I'm going to associate it with...
