Spike tatto design thingy by oomizuao Spike tatto design thingy by oomizuao
For quite some time now, I've wanted a tattoo of Spike. This is not out of selfishness at all; Spike is a character that's meant a lot to me throughout the years of his "existence". He was also one of my first OC's, or at least my most precious one, and also he symbolizes a lot of things that are meaningful to me. Too many things to be listed here.. :p

I did plan to get this particular drawing tattooed on my upper arm, but.. after photoshopping it onto my arm (I took a photo of my arm and copy-pasted the design onto my arm) I realized this wouldn't look very good as a tattoo, design-wise..
I tried one where he's got larger wings that are wrapped around him, sort of like a cocoon only not touching him. But me and my boyfriend agreed that this design just looked too depressing to have on an arm. So, I made a new design. One which I won't post here, afraid that someone will steal it.. (I'm afraid people are gonna steal this one too, hence the watermark.. XD )

So, well, I kind of like this design, just not as a tattoo.
In the new design I made today, he's still got his dark wings, only much much larger, and sort of wrapped around him. It's more positive than this one, but still kinda deep. It's based on my deviation which I think I named "feathers" where Spike is sitting on the ground, holding a feather in front of him. The runes/text in the picture reads "feathers, not fur, and I would be able to fly away from here".. It's a bit of a mix between "feathers" and the deviation "angel of torment" which can be seen in my NocturnalMoTH account.


'n stuff..


^^;


aw well.. here's my self-rejected tattoo design. Do not steal or use without permission! D:

your rather obsessed with the thought of people stealing your stuff aren't you? =/ It's copyrighted, it's fine. Like anyone's really going to try stealing your stuff when they know you will sue them.. You're being paranoid.

its great.... but i was thinking that it would be a very nice cover for the novel, because it dosent give the story away yet sets a strong tone for the book.....

Aww this is so sad :( His pose and detail in his limbs is really effective. I really like how he's covering himself, like hiding himself. And I like how you can see how sad he is, even though his face is hidden.

Great job, Sis! :hug: :D

Right shoulder blade. That's where I would get this tattoo. It would hurt like a mother fudger, but it's the perfect spot on me :3
Anywho, I absolutely love this ^^

I think it would look very good on a t-shirt. not slap bang in the middle, but at the bottom, just above the hem, and to either the right or left of the shirt. I think left if on the front, right if on the back, but that's just me.

It's beautiful, sad but beautiful.

Oh my God... It´s a really amazing design, but I agree with you that it probably wouldn´t look good as a tattoo. Still love it, though. Very beautiful shading, and the meaning is even better.

it's awesome!, you should put the picture of your tattooed arm up on DA so I can admire it, but after it's tattooed and finished, that way if someone tried to steal it, they would just look even more stupid and no one would be fooled. :D

Your drawing and art always impress me, still the thing makes me admire you is Spike, put simply, to me is the deepest character I've met, his story and the novel is simply too strong to words to me...
