    I have updated this thread as from before
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...e/244255-designer-request-designers-here.html

    As i know exactly whats needed now!

    I need a back tattoo designed for a family member who lost there child.

    Hes looking a tattoo with the first verse of "lucy in the sky with diamonds"
    The whole first verse would be great here is an example of an arm one with part of the verse

    [​IMG]

    He wants this with clouds in the background with a little colour in the clouds, and diamonds coming through the clouds, the tattoo must also include the sheet music as above with the lyrics.

    Anyone who participates will get an upgrade and those who participate that are jnr vip will be nominated for executive vip (if it is worthy). I may also throw a straight up Executive vip if its worthy. This tattoo needs to be tasteful and I will appreciate it.

    Many thanks

    Here´s a cool video of this cool song for remembering and for some inspiration!

    Unfortunately I´m a musician and don´t mess with graphics. But I´ve seen some serious designs here in BHW so I hope he who gets this task can do a brilliant job and a killer tattoo design!

    Cheers!

    So does it need to be hand drawn?

    If you are new to tattoos I suggest you watch LA Ink since they require a certain design flair.

    I'd help you, but this isn't really my area of expertise.

    Man I'm sorry to hear about that Harro.

    Your entire family, especially the parents and immediate family of the child have my sympathy for enduring such a loss.

    If I can think of any ideas that would help for the tattoo, I'll let you know. There's a lot of talented people here so I'm sure someone will be able to come up with something really nice.

    If you still need this I am going to give it a whirl I've been doing graphic design for years and have drawn a few ink designs.

    Ok laying it out I'm thinking that the whole first verse on the forearm might be a tad too small to be legible, the words I have on my arm are only 3mm high and they artist said that was about the limit on how small because like ink on a page it tends to spread under the skin and you end up with O, D, P etc. (anything with a tight loop) filling in if you're not careful; The whole verse thus;

    Picture yourself in a boat on a river,
    With tangerine trees and marmalade skies.
    Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
    A girl with kaleidoscope eyes.

    Cellophane flowers of yellow and green,
    Towering over your head.
    Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes,
    And she's gone.

    Would take up a heck of a lot of space. I'll try but I think it might be good to go with a plan B? Maybe the title, or just the first 4 lines?

    Let me know I'll keep going until I hear otherwise (oh and deepest symapthies for the loss)

    I saw a video today by the name " lucy is the sky" in which there is a girl who's got her legs up in the sky and a guy is strumming her. Can't post it her, sorry.

    Hisnibbs: note that he is asking for a back tattoo design. The picture with the arm is just for example/inspirational purposes. So you do have more room to work with than you thought.

    Harro, I'll definitely participate and see if I can come up with something nice. Will get started in the morning.

    I have a girl that draws up all of my tattoos. She is really quite good. I will throw this at her and see what I can do. I also have two daughters and express my deepest condolences for this great loss. I don't know what I would do if something happened to one of my girls.

    Anyways, I will get this to her and tell her to rush it.

    I do have a couple of questions as she is very picky about my details.
    1. You want the lyrics below the notes just like the picture?
    2. You want Clouds in the top of the picture for the background or the entire tat?
    3. How much of the song do you want in it?

    Looking forward to helping out, and again I am very sorry for the loss.

    yeh thanks dude he wants the lyrics like the picture above.

    Think all he wants is the "lucy in the sky with diamonds"
    The clouds around the picture as the background

    much appreciated :)
