    Any BAT- TATTOO's ?

    was in a very interesting duscussion with someone about our mutual love of tattoo art.
    ill let him disclose his identity if he chooses.

    my artwork is splashed all over these wonderfull bat pages.

    im planning some dc themed artwork for my left arm, in the style of bruce timm's artwork.
    does anyone have any current batman / dc ( even marvel / horror movie ) tattoo work done ? i personally would love to see it, as i am an admitted tattoo addict.

    i love the art, i love the talent these people possess.
    considering i have well over 70 pieces, i would also be willing to answer anyones questions, and or concerns on getting permanent artwork either on here, or in private.

    or may be planning on it ?

    whip out those superman and bat logo's fella's ( and gals )

    I don't have any tattoo's at all but I've been wanting to get a Batman one though for awhile I just haven't had a chance too. My cousin though has the Superman shield on his arm but instead of the usual Superman colors he has it black and blue which are his high school colors. Its pretty cool looking and if I can get him to get me a pic of it I will post it.
    People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy and I can't do that as Bruce Wayne, as a man I'm flesh and blood I can be ignored I can be destroyed but as a symbol, as a symbol I can be incorruptible, I can be everlasting.

    I looked all over and cannot find a pic of it, and i unfortunatly dont have any of my pics on my pc atm. But when batman begins came out the card company "Bicycle" made a deck of BB cards, and the "2" card had a cool tribal batman symbol. so i took that card to a local tattoo shop and got it put at the top of my back, almost from shoulder to shoulder

    If anyone ever comes across a pic of that card (doesnt matter what suit) i would really appreciate it lol

    Watch this at about 5.25, its a clip from a British comedy show called Argumental where comedians argue whether things are good or bad and in this ep the argue about tattoos and the Rufus Hound takes off his shirt to show of his tattoos.
    I killed Jason Todd and all i got was this lousy t-shirt.

    I actually HAVE been planning on getting the Arkham Asylum tattoo......but in greyshade with the detailing of the metal in black. I also wanted to take out the lettering so that it looked like pieces coming together to form the word "Batman"

    Here's the sketch I've been showing to get price quotes from artists along with the actual logo:

    I found this tattoo of one of the penguins from Batman Returns while browsing around on Google.

    in us dollars, ill take a very educated guess, and say. 3-5 hours, and $300.00 / 550.00 / 600 euro.

    It shouldnt cost that much. Mine only cost $120 and it covers almost my entire forearm.

    Wow.....that's really cool. Yeah, I was only planning to get mine across a shoulder so I'm hoping it won't cost THAT much.

    The last guy I talked to told me that he would do just the bat outline filled in for roughly $120. At the time, I hadn't planned on all of the detailing.

    yours is nice, but its also close to one color and a solid piece.
    multi colored fracted ( seperate ) pieces are harder to do correctly, and are more time consuming. remember your not paying for the art neccesarrily, you are paying for the artist's time.

    yup and thats JUST the bat outline.

    add the cracks, your metallic coloring you wish, and the seperation of lettering.

    your now at or over 300+ usd.
    again geography standards factor in too. im speaking of ONE partcular shop, in chicago, usa.

    not kansas, or oklamhoma.. not to say there are not splendid artists there, or anywhere, but just the same as anything, from rent, to bars, to entertainment.

    larger metro areas demand higher cost's. , if your that serious about this piece, take it too several artists, for quotes.

    That's why I was saying I was planning on JUST a darker grey with black detailing......no coloring. All black ink. Kinda like vulcanraven's?

    And yeah.....I want to do it right.

    whoa......... THAT would take some serious time if your thinking full back art.

    if your on average of about 6 foot tall male and your looking for a full piece, itll take 3 sessions. and for something in this art style youll need someone along the lines of a kat von D ,who is an expert in shading, and depth.

    Kat's work is amazing. I hope to one day come to the US with my wife and get her to ink us.

    I would like to show you all what I have in mind for a Batman tattoo but I'll wait until I get it done, as to make it my own and then people are free to copy it.
