Jeep Tattoo Help

Hey everyone!

I wasn't sure what the best place to post this was, but I figure I could never fail with general discussion. I've been contemplating for a long while on whether or not to get a tattoo, and the greatest advice I've gotten is to get something 'meaningful.'
So I decided to make a combination piece of my life-long dreams, and Jeeps are included in something I've always dreamed about since I was a little boy not even in his teens. It's the only vehicle that I feel passionate about, strangely enough, I wouldn't drive anything else. Seriously, if you gave me a Bugatti, I'd sell it and buy 20 Jeeps. But I digress...

I've put together some ideas but I don't exactly have the most creative mind in the world. If someone would like to contribute their impression of a tattoo containing 4 key components, it would be highly appreciated!

The tattoo must contain:

- An "RT" logo (symbol for respiratory therapists)
- A Jeep (preferably a front view, although I'm open to the side views)
- A windsurfer
- The word "Veneratio" (the latin word for 'respect')

Here's the pieces I've been using, but again, I'm open to using other images as well.



The less complicated the design the better, although I know it's a pretty busy tattoo already. I also consider the 'RT' part of this to be of most importance.
Oh, and only BLACK please. No colour!

Take this to a tattoo shop and have them draw something up for you...it's part of what they do!

First, do your research on the different shops and artists by looking at their portfolios. Most you can find online these days if the shop has a website. Visit the shops and speak with the artists. Many artists will have you pay a commission up front(50-100) to draw it up. The commission goes towards the cost of the tattoo when you get it.

Be careful, you may be adding a new addiction to your jeep addiction!

also, make sure you know where on your body you want the tattoo. That will make a big difference on what and how the artist draws it up.

i agree.... research an artist you want, go in there with these and they will draw something up. you can ad insight after the first drawing and get it to something your happy with....

ive been getting inked for over 12yrs and my artist is amazing. hes got a 6 month waiting list, hes done all 10+ pieces. most of the time i give him an idea, he draws it up and we will only do 1 redraw to tweak a couple things. best way to do it imo
