Not as yet.
Lucky I’m here then, isn’t it.
This is how I see the Peter Capaldi’s Doctor now.
The minute I fell in love with 12.
So I have known for a long time that I want to get a tattoo to honor my relationship with my husband, Armando, but I have been drawing a complete blank on what kind of hyper-symbolic imagery I wanted to use (I am not a fan of simple name tattoos). I finally have a great idea, but it is super specific, so I want to record it before I forget any of it. =D
Apparently, I want the image to be that of a ship being tossed about on a stormy sea. I love this image, and I think it is a ridiculously wonderful picture of our tumultuous marriage that has somehow managed to stay afloat.
HOWEVER, I just so happen to hate ship tattoos. I do not want something that is gonna come out looking like this:
I have a much better idea in mind. I want the image of the ship to be enclosed in a circle, as if it were drawn on a disc, because I want it to drawn in the style of an old scrimshaw, or whale-bone etching.
It is very important to me that the drawing look more like an etching than a cartoon.
It is also important to me that the image itself be *just* so. I want a ship tossed about on a stormy sea, with grossly exaggerated waves and an obviously dark sky. The ship should be leaning precariously, preferably profile, so it is obviously in peril. As far as visual space is concerned tho, I want the storm to be the focus of the image, not the ship. I want the drawing to be a simple black outline, like an etching, but with various shades of blue accenting the lines. I do not want a full-color image, nor do I want a color outline.
Outside the scrimshaw image, my ideas get much less specific. I would like to incorporate his name, and/or I would like to include a fitting quote, as yet undiscovered. A banner seems the best way to do that, but I am wary of tattoo banners, especially since I don’t want the tattoo to look too…tattoo-ish. I have some time to explore a few options tho; now that my idea is recorded, I will sit on it a while to see if I still like the idea in a few weeks. Or months. Or years. xD
Over his thirty years in the hobby, American photographer Mo Devlin has successfully bred many of the Central and South American cichlid fishes. His passion for the aquarium hobby is only rivaled by his love of photography. Recently he develops the love of taking pictures of frozen flowers with a macro lens to create abstract compositions. He captures different patterns, light, texture and details of each frozen flower. (src. Artist’s biography & Fubiz)
If you haven’t seen this awesome song Craig Fergison did to honor Doctor Who, you should watch this.
Absolutely love this
