Kitty Tattoos by Ryoun-Atsumi Kitty Tattoos by Ryoun-Atsumi
A girl (Woman, actually, but girl sounds more familiar) over in Subeta put out a plea; she was looking for a new tattoo, that had a black cat and a Yin-yang symbol. I tried to be clever and make them easily uploadable/downloadable via Photobucket, but that worked out horribly. So I'm doing it the way I really wanted to in the first place.

._. Not the best, my hand is so darn shaky. I had to white-out and re-black quite a few times. But these are eight I've come up with. Not too bad.

Those are great designs! I especially love that you use 69 yin yangs, instead of 96. Great work! =^_^=<3

Top right is my favorite. I don't really care for tattoos on my own person, but think they're beautiful when others get them. but if I were to get a cat tattoo, I would use the top right, or something very similar. it's gorgeous and accurately depicts a real honest to goodness cat personality! Love these!

Hello there! :D

I've been looking for a cat tattoo to honour my baby, and although you've seemed very surprised that people would want to use your designs, when I saw these I knew I'd found exactly what I was looking for.

I'd be honoured if you let me use one of your designs. Of course I would credit you and link back to this image when I uploaded the photo.

May I?

As much as I was, and still am surprised that people like my designs, I did design them to use.
And with your polite inquiry and explanation, I can hardly say no. Do go ahead, I myself have yet to find something that says "This is me" but since you have, I'll certainly not bar your way.
I've been advised that some of the gaps between the black and "white" (Skin) are too thin, and ink would bleed and blur the lines. But the tattoo artist you go to should be able to correct these.

And do please link me to the photo; I would love to see which one you get, and how it turns out.
And my eternal thanks for having asked me first. I do appreciate that kindness.

Eeech, asthma. I had a case as a kid, not at all nice :shakehead:
:D You and Megan gonna be working together? Lawl, we can get together on off days and bitch about MDs! If our schedules let us get together =w=
O_O Shifting house? Where? To like, Megan's? Like, out of Cavendish road? WHO AM I GOING TO WAVE WHEN I GO PAST, NOW?! I always waved at you place and said "HI FRED!" when I went past. Even though you may not have been there, or even herd me. It's the thought that counts.

I like the one balancing the yin yang on its nose, and the top right one is really clever. I would have* the one centre right without the yin yang, I love the shape of the kitty's head and the curly tail!

*if I wan't so bloody scared of needles...

Awww, neddlescare :hug: I'm okay with needles; it's the pain I hate.
For just some (first I've done) tattoos I threw together, they seem to be pretty popular.

The pain isn't too bad actually. You get used to it after a while, but then again it also depends on the person, my best friend and I both got tattoos, her's didn't hurt at all, mine did, then again mine is a lot bigger and has more detail than hers.

Apparently (my cousin says) it hurts more when it's in a place you can't see, his back was tattooed and he said it hurt a lot more than his arm.

I love, love love the one with it balancing the symbol on it's nose! All of them in the middle, in fact, are wonderful!

I agree, a bit more whitespace may help a bit, because not every tattoo artist is going to be albe to get such defined lines, but otherwise, absolutely great! (and, if she is getting one done, the artist can fix that right there, no worries :D)

:glomp: Aww, thankyou! I'm kinda ambivalent about them all, but I think the second one (top right) is the one that I'd like enough to get. I do like the one with the symbol balancing on it's nose, it's one of the best, I think.

I'll keep the space thing in mind if/when I ever do another one/batch. But still, not bad for my first tattoo designs

._. I just think Mother want me out of her hair. We haven't really been close, and we sometimes haven't even tolerated eachother. Father and I are closer than mum and I ever were :shrug: Not to say she won't worry, or check up, or even care. But more like she respect I am my own person, and what I do will have reprocussions and I must deal with them. Getting disowned is the reprocussion of getting a tattoo while under therule of mother's house. Ma's fair, and just, and certainly kind. Maybe I'm biased? I UNNO! Mama's awesome, dun lemme say anything different

My one suggestion would be to leave a bit more white space between the cat and the yin-yang symbol within a few of the designs. Remember, Tattoos bleed over time, so you wouldn't want the symbol to get lost in the cat completely.

I really really like the two top most designs.

D: I didn't know tattoos bled over time! Thinking about it now, logically, that would happen, with cell division and regeneration. :hug: Thank you for telling me that, it's a good thing to know when/if I design my next batch.
