Another Tattoo Sketch

I am wanting to get a tattoo of my horse along with a quote or something maybe his name, Peppys Dry Flash, but would prefer a quote. If anyone knows of a quote I could use please let me know I would love one that describes our relationship. He is my rock and my safety net, I bought him right before I found out my parents were getting a divorce, and many other things have happened since then and he is just my comfort. Anywho...I have a few pictures in mind..here they are...I would appreciate if maybe someone could help me choose which one..and if anyone wanted to be especially nice maybe sketch something up for me...or help me get some ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Be very careful about angles, and pay a good tattoo artist to come up with a really good sketch. Most tattoo artists aren't horsepeople, they don't know when angles are wrong. Your horse is very very cute, but the camera has added some distortion that makes his head appear more coarse than I'm sure it is in real life. I've seen some great horse tattoos, and some downright awful ones - and a lot of it had to do with distortion, and the fact that the artist didn't know how to correct it when drawing. Even paying someone (like Equusketch or LilRuffian on this forum) to come up with a drawing, then taking that to the tattoo artist might be an idea. Reading over some equine photography books or forums might help you see what the "golden angles" are. Simple things such as showing both ears, learning the best angle to work with, or working with distortion, can make the difference between an amazing piece of art (photo, painting, tattoo, whatever), and a bad one.
Out of the photos you posted, #2 would be my choice to work with. It shows his proportions the best.

JustDressageIt- Thanks so much that is something to think about! I am going to try and take some better pictures and post them, trying to get some better and different angles, the distortion comes from the fact that I took the pics with my Blackberry and not a camera..lol...I hope you check back when I put more pics up and let me know what you think!
