Art/Reference book I've been trying to get going for a while now hopefully with all your pledges I can get this project off the ground!
I am Creating a Tattoo Line Art Book ... I have been collecting and saving my drawings and sketches for people that have gotten tattooed by me for over 12 years now. Some of those ideas & sketches either made it to the skin or didn't either way a lot of these sketches and line work need a good place to go! ... Help me get these drawings just sitting here collecting dust printed in a book! It has been a goal of mine for a good while to do something with all these drawings so i am hoping to get a good 30 - 50 page Line Art & Sketchbook made out of them .. all i need is help from you!! ... Pledge and help get this book off the ground and get some cool rewards back!
*Brief explanation of what a Tattoo Line Art book is .. A Tattoo Line Art Book is a book of patterns that u can take to your tattoo artist and if he's at a good shop will be able to take the line art of your tattoo and use that to create your tattoo .. The line art itself is put into a machine which takes the lines and puts it onto a transfer paper to be transferred to the skin .. Makes it very easy for the artist and makes it a quicker process for the customer .. This book is a book of art not just for tattoo artists but for anyone who enjoys all types of art in general!!
BE PART OF THIS BOOK!! .. Well I was gonna make this art book available and start a website for this and other books and art pieces I have for sale and in doing so realized the good 'ol bank account isn't able to handle all that right now! .. Haha .. so in order to make this something that was more appealing than some Tattoo Art Book I've decided to make it interactive in some way by having you decide what actual art pieces I will be adding to the book! Depending on your contribution to my project you will have a choice of a small piece or large piece and i will draw it up and put it in the book!! .. Basically I'm letting you decide what actual goes in the book and exactly what you want so you can take your design to your own tattoo artist or for a good bid I will tattoo it for you myself!! Contact me after you bid and let me know what it is exactly you want me to draw and I will do my best to bring your design to life .. Couple of tips for the custom pieces .. Try to make them as simple as possible depending on the whole tattoo .. Example if u bid on the small design try not to let it have to many things involved with it ... Please don't ask for a skull with roses with your name with birthdate and your sons face and his favorite color in the background.. Definitely won't work .. Firstly all the custom drawn art for the book is gonna be Line-Art only no shading or color ..(shading & color version of the pieces available in postcard size.. see pledges). Second no faces or portraits or realistic art as much as possible .. And finally although this is a custom art piece try not to be too personal ..names are cool but try not to add dates... keep them custom but as general as possible.
Tattoo art can really be almost everything.. just about anything can be tattooed on skin nowadays so an art book on tattoo art should make for a pretty good book! If your not getting a tattoo idea from it then you can at least enjoy it!
