Monkeys Fucking Footballs. (and other original ideas……)

“People over estimate their uniqueness so that commonalities seem like small miracles.”

Google has already found your tattoo. It has already found the same tattoo for hundreds of other people wanting a bird and stars. After a quick Google search you quickly realize how many people had your idea. It is no big deal. Don’t lose hope. Remember that 98% of all tattoos on Google are not very good. The tattoos might be poorly executed, poorly placed, or poorly drawn. That is not our concern at the moment.

The hunt for an original design is going to end in failure. “Why?” you may ask. Because you haven’t had it drawn yet. I want you to think of a food buffet. If you take 40 people through the exact same buffet, with the exact same food bins, each one will come out with a differently arranged plate. A few of the variations: portions, craving, and order of importance. When you sit down with an artist and give him a bin of ideas, the artist will help you organize the size, ideas, and composition.

When you were in grammar school they taught you how to compose an essay. An essay has elements of organization. For instance, you know where the heading goes; you are familiar with a body. You have paragraphs, sentences, nouns and verbs.

We have been taught grammatical discipline since childhood. We have not been taught how to construct a painting or illustration. Do you know that the two are very similar? An artist with a foundation in solid design can walk you through creating a tattoo.

This is how awesome tattoos are created. A good artist can take your ideas from an 8th grade dance to a ballroom waltz. When I meet with a client for a consultation, my goal is to give them a new perspective on an old idea. Everything has been done before. The way I organize your ideas for you will be original, just like the plates in the buffet.
