POP UP INKED

Just to make August a bit more challenging , Here is a 2 part pop up challenge for you.
I have been watching Ink master on tv, and it struck me how similar many of the designs they use to Tattoo are similar to what we have in some of our kits. So out of that thought a challenge was born.
I freely admit that it was a lot harder than I thought it would be, to combine different elements, and make it look cohesive , ( and tattooable ) so on my example page I used very simple shapes, but I will be doing this challenge with you, so I will work on a more elaborate design. It is fun I promise (slightly evil laugh) The challenge is this;
Out of elements, shapes or your own drawing , create a design that you can imagine it is possible to tattoo on a person. In tattooing outline is key, so your design must have some sort of clear outline. It can be only line work, tribal , colour, it doesn't matter the style, but it must be clear, so do not use background shading, unless it is something that can be replicated with a tattoo machine.
Make 1 to 5 designs on your page,on a single solid coloured background. DO NOT FLATTEN
Disclaimer... I know mine has more than 5 images, it is an example, my actual page I will post later.
please post in the gallery under pop up challenges and here in this thread so I know it is there.
Part 2 of this challenge will be posted about 2 weeks from now here in this thread.
Have fun.

Thank you Vivi. This has given me a new appreciation for the folk that go to work for the tattoo shop just down the corner from me.

@doglvr49 @Rosie @DeLoris thank you so much for being the brave pioneers... I know right -Kathy,tattooers are true artists, I love watching the programme,not so much for the competition, but Just to see how they interpret the subject they have to do.
Rosie,I am so happy you get to use these designs in your kit also, (I love 2fers).
DeLores, I can see your design on someone's arm..

This is a very unique challenge, and there are some very interesting pages so far. I have a confession to make - I have been sporting a few colorful tattoos of my own for over 20 years now. I was blessed to have an excellent artist do them, and they still look as good as the day I got them. I have no regrets.

Here are my samples.

I have 5 Tattoo's........they are gorgeous pieces of art of things that mean a lot to me, so this Pop-Up is right up my alley. AND I loved watching Ink Masters on the TV when we had one! So creative. Alas, my 'body canvas' is a bit too wrinkly now for any more "tats" but I still long for more. Can't wait to play, Vivi. xoxoxoxo
