Unique Request :]

So, I was wondering if anyone would be willing to draw a tattoo sketch for me. I have a specific idea but am a horrible artist xD

My idea is slightly intricate, or at least could be, but it needs to be simple enough to be less than 1"x1" and fit on my wrist. Lol. What I was thinking is to have like a horseshoe (not cartoon, but somewhat realistic horseshoe) with a heart hanging off of the upper left nail hole. Kind of like a charm. And have a dove flying through it towards the right. If that makes any sense. Haha.

Any attempt from anyone would be greatly appreciated. I would do it myself if i could.

I can change the angle/position of the dove. The actual drawing is a smidge larger than 1 by 1 inch.
Big, show some details:

You may need to compromise a little on size if you are actually planning to have it tattooed. Something with that amount of detail is pretty much impossible to have tattooed that small. I'd speak to a tattoo artist before you get your heart set on having it that small.

I love that masatisan :] Thank you thank you thank you. The only difference is that i was thinking more like the heart actually threaded through the nail holes. But I like your version too. Hmmm.

And yeah, that's what I was worried about. I'm wondering how much it would be needed to be dumbed down in order to work at that size. I'm not so willing to compromise size seeing as I'm anxious not to cross the line into the land of tacky. Lol.

If anyone else would like to give it a go and add their own little twist it would be interesting to see what comes of it.

Not quite sure how to take that?

I have several large tattoos, which I certainly wouldn't consider tacky. I actually have a horse shoe with 2 sparrows & 2 cherry blossoms on my leg. It is probably about 8 x 6. And it's not my largest.

Lol. I'm not calling anyone tacky. I'm just very small and very white. My wrist is pretty much the only place I'd like to get tattooed, and I feel as if it gets too big, on me, it will look very tacky. That's just what I think for myself. I have seen manymany people with rather large tattoos that I absolutely love. Unfortunately, I feel they just wouldn't look right on my body. I didn't mean to insult anyone xD
