Sadly the world just doesn't work like that. Consider it more of you're paying for the time it takes to make the picture more than the actual art piece itself. Many people scam by saying the same thing you're saying then see the picture posted here, copy it, print it out then go show it to the tattooist, and the artist or the original piece never gets paid for the TIME they spent on something for you. If you pay beforehand then they will get it done otherwise their reputation is ruined. That's why research is so important, before paying just anyone to draw for you, look at their work....look at a lot of their work and decide form there.

I guarantee if their work is phenomenal they are not going to randomly plop out a piece of crap and give it to you. They have their reputation to keep up, so they need only their best to go out to paying customers. Plus I'm sure the good artists here would never even consider doing something mediocre for a tattoo. They value art too much for something like that. Which is why I told you I couldn't do it for you because I know that I am not up to the quality that should be there for a tattoo.

Find an artist you like and then pay them to do a commission. Its your best option. (Make sure you get pictures after, I love seeing other people's tattoos!!)

Many people keep telling me to become a tattoo artist, and many have asked me to sketch them tattoos designs. I enjoy drawing, its a passion, not a job. I have given away many of my pieces of work just because people love it, and I enjoy sharing my passion with others.

I have heard the same thing a few times, but I know personally that I would not (I could never live with that much much of an idea of permanence) and mostly that was by people who had no tattoos themselves or even began to understand the tattoo process. Its like telling a person who can draw skateboard that they can easily snowboard, while they may be similar in mechanics they are different to handle and require their own set of skills. There is a respect that needles and skin are NOT like pencil and paper. I have seen my fair share of horrid tattoos.

If you love drawing and people want your work that is great! But it is very rare to find great talent amongst the pleasure group. Cause if you love doing something and you're good enough at it, why do it for free? Those that want it to be a career HAVE to be great. So they work very hard to perfect their work. So by nature their work is better. Just a fact of life, I'm going to always choose the farrier who does it for a living over the person who only does their own horses and might offer it to me cheaper. Its just a level of professionalism.

That's what I've done too! Made some friends in the process also

I'm a published artist, I do commission work, but prefer to do my own 'thing'. Some of my pieces have fetched over $2000......I only do freebies for friends....and usually it's a surprise gift!

If I had time I'd do an image for you, as currently I am on hiatus (brain is not quite in the right space right now) Id do it just to brush up......sketching and drawing for me is like warming up a horse before a gallop (painting!!)

Let me think on it.....if I ever figure out how to post pics on here!!!!!!!M

Sorry to post so late - I am a bit of a procrastinator - but anyway this is what I came up with so far.

I thought it would be a good idea to combine two pictures together. To me it looked more eloquent to have him standing with his head cocked slightly inward revealing his soft eye.

Heres the thing about tattoos. Even if you get a good picture/drawing here of a horse, the artist you get for the tattoo may not have the same ability or imagination and it may not turn out the same as on the paper.

Take it from me. I design all my own tattoos and when I go in to get them done it still gets tweaked a little by them because face it everybody has their own drawing styles and techniques. So your best bet for getting a tattoo of him is to take the pictures in to the parlor where you want to get it and sit down with them and they will work WITH you to get you EXACTLY what you want.

And remember too, that realistic drawings such as this do not always come out as clear and beautiful on skin as they are on paper. You really have to find a good tattoo artist and experiment and tweak with it. Don't go in with a drawing from here, and expect it to come out the same on your skin...because another thing is everybodies body and everybodies skin is differant so it wont always work how you want.


But if you want a portrait to hang of your GORGEOUS horse then the artists on here are definitely the right choice haha

*Insert something witty*
