Welcome to r/DrawMyTattoo!

This is a community for tattoo design enthusiasts to share their tattoos, inspiration, designs, and requests so that they can plan their next tattoo. This is NOT a subreddit for finalised tattoo designs, it is only to get ideas and rough drawings to help envision what you might want.

A licensed tattoo artist is the only person who should be designing your tattoo. r/DrawMyTattoo is only here to help you make plans, not finish them. No requesting to be paid.

This subreddit is for entertainment purposes only.

Tattoo artists have the knowledge and experience to create appropriate designs. A layperson on the internet, even if they are a good artist, will not. Many elements are necessary for a good tattoo design that a layperson will be familiar with.

  1. Any talking of pricing, charging or payment in any form including unwanted DM's to users will result in a ban. This is for fun only!!

  2. Trolling, Advertising, Promotion, contests etc. WILL get you banned.

For requests: Please try to keep them simple, it will greatly increase your chances of getting a response. Be aware that designs created here should be a starting point only, and your tattoo artist will need to make changes or even start from scratch to ensure that you will be getting a good tattoo that will last for decades.

Tarantula Tattoo Idea

Hey y'all, I'm hoping someone can help me with this idea.

A tarantula that is made of flowers maybe some leaves if it fits in. All my tattoos are black and grey.

I have a scorpion just like this idea but now I want to do a tarantula and can't figure out a creative layout..

Re-designing art for tattoo

Hey everyone, I recently commissioned art from a good friend of mine (who isn't a tattoo artist) with the intent of getting it tattoo'ed.

Im looking for someone with the knowledge of tattoos to make alterations/check it over - as it is now I think details will be lost/the design will get muddy as the tattoo heals and ages

Details: The tattoo is a fairly simple stylized lineart piece, inspired by medieval alchemical illustrations Placed on my inner forearm from wrist to just over halfway up

If you're interested shoot me a message and I'll send the piece for reference :)

Also if you have any general tattoo design advice I'd love to hear it!

Tattoo to represent stroke survival

Hi all, I’m almost at the three year mark having survived a stroke at the age of 31. I’ve thought about a tattoo to mark 3 years.

I saw some designs of a brain that’s like a small jigsaw puzzle, and I thought about having one piece in black, or something like that.

But I’m the least creative person ever so I’m open to suggestions! Much appreciated!

Creation of a Tattoo design

Hey everyone,

I'm looking for someone who can help me design my first tattoo, or at least assist with creating an initial design.

I have a clear vision of how it should look, but I'm not very skilled at drawing, and my attempts haven't turned out well.

The concept revolves around an infinity symbol, which would serve as the outline for everything else.

The most important aspects of my life are my family and football, so I want to incorporate both elements into the design.

For the family part, I was thinking of a tree of life. I know it might not be the perfect fit, and I'm open to other suggestions.

Regarding the football element, I'm not exactly sure what I want. A simple football feels too basic. I play football and wear the number 2, so perhaps we can incorporate that somehow.

I haven't decided on the placement yet, but I'm leaning towards having it on my arm. I also prefer it to be small, possibly in a fineline style.

Thanks for any help or suggestions!

My wife’s tattoo idea!

My lovely wife had her first tattoo idea and I want to get it designed for her. This is her exact text “Mt. Fiji on top of the leg then it faded into a cherry blossom tree with a old fashioned Japanese house under it with a river or a pond with koi fish going down the rest of the leg. It was all colored. “

She told me she had to stop watching anime because she dreamed this.
