Okay so my Tatto preferences (not a critique, just give examples to a style). Whether or not the tattoo is well done or poorly done, I believe realistic random pictures to not accent the body well, while more artistic forms can help give form and be more appeasing to the eye. You're not drawing on a flat paper here, its a 3D object and I believe it should be sculpted to the 3d object. Unless it a rather simple design, which I can see more excuse for. Which is why I have such a hard time deciding on a tattoo for myself, but I want to somewhat design it but have no idea how to make it work well on the body.
I don't like :
^^This one is well done to compliment the back, but I still don't like it.
I Like :
I don't find those tattoos to be attractive. I think that's what it all comes down to. I agree that artists can have amazing and beautiful artwork, but on the human body...I don't like it. I like most sleeve work, I dislike most calf work, and back work is 50/50. (The rest of the body is iffy. Lol
