Sorry I haven't really been following this thread, but I just wanted to share a couple ideas I've come up with for my friends since we're all embarking on the "whoohoo I just turned 18, I can get a tatoo and buy cigarrettes even though I don't smoke" phase.
One friend of mine wants some design incorporating 3 symbols: a heart, a bird, and an om. Here is what I came up with while doodling:
She said she really likes it.
I doodled a tatoo for my other friend too, but I won't share that picture since it's embarassingly sloppy. The concept is a tree, with a little boy sitting in the top of it, and he's grabbing a star out of the sky. I still have to figure out how to sketch it out as simply as possible, as she doesn't want her tatoo to be very big. ::shrug::
