ZZZ Projects got their new tattoo by running a design contest:

Check out ZZZ Projects's Tattoo contest…
It doesn’t matter for the tattoo, but we are doing software for .NET developers using Microsoft technology.
What's your vision?
Like many people here, I'm looking for a tattoo that will represent me. In fact, two tattoos (one per lower arm), but you can only design the right one. Please go here for an HTML version of this markdown text: https://gist.github.com/JonathanMagnan/64a93e9ac25bc83e9accfc54fff42fb0 BONUS: $200 for second place BONUS: $100 for third place BONUS: $50 for each designer that I believe deserve a price for the effort _Bonus are in USD and will be paid directly in a 99 design contract (no work or deliverable required)_ ## Tattoo Summary Description The right arm represents my weakness. I want to be able to look at it, and **remember to limit my actions and to balance my life**. The left arm represents my strength. It represents more what I'm, my success, and my goal. # Deliverable You must deliver **1 image** with only one arm or **1 image** with both arms. ## Size & Position The position should be on the forearm. It can be pretty much of any size. Here is where is located the forearm: https://static.scientificamerican.com/sciam/cache/file/E5D0E3CC-96A2-4728-80B4606CC8F44D03_source.jpg?w=590&h=800&327B845A-8FCD-4443-925DA2DB4CA75A18 ## What is mandatory for me I'm giving a straight initial direction, but for the rest, feel free to use your creativity! - Must have some red colors, but not too much red either! (Can have other colors as well) - The right arm must make me remember to don't do anything stupid (so to don't fail!) - The design must be of a realist style - The design must have synergy between all images and have a sense - I want something that will be eye-catchy Think about how you could look at your right arm and remember that time is precious. ## Concept Idea Think about your concept idea before designing it. So far, most beautiful designs come from the thing that I didn't say and designer proposed. Those designers came with their concept and suggested something that has make their design unique and attractive. If you have no idea, go for a sand timer for the right arm - Make the sand timer unique and awesome. I don't want a normal sand timer, but something who go outside the ordinary (For example, a sand timer with a dragon, snake, etc.) - Make the sand red to represent the blood - Find a concept for the sand timer to add more image and have a synergy with it However, keep in mind that I'm very open in a new idea, and the current preferred design doesn't have a sand timer. ## What defines me? I'm limitless! If I don't keep an eye on myself, I will go over the limit and exaggerate on everything. I will drink 3 bottles of wine the same night, eat 2 large pizza (I'm 190lbs…), play a game for 72h nonstop. So whenever I fail, I fail very hard! But being limitless also has a good side! I always want to surpass and improve myself; I created my own company by doing the job of several employees all by myself; I train harder than most people, etc… I love my life! I'm always smiling and try to enjoy every moment. I love to go to a bar alone and speak to many people that I just meet. I'm very impulsive in some actions but also rational on other actions. In fact, I might have a bipolar disorder ;) Which pretty much explains why both arms are the opposite. ## Tattoo that I like Not exactly on the arm but It might give you more ideas of some tattoo I like: - Awesome detail & devil/angel contrast here: https://tattoozza.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/28427795_189058358525181_4965477000178302976_n.jpg - Probably this kind of tattoo I would like for my chest - 2 Tattoo in one: https://www.pinterest.ca/pin/550142910733271046/ - Nice clock + 3D effect: https://www.thisistattoo.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Super-Cool-Pocket-watch-tattoo-Designs-45.jpg - Filled & empty: https://i.styleoholic.com/2016/07/11-matching-feather-tattoos-for-best-friends.jpg - A vertical split for color: https://www.pinterest.ca/pin/400398223117565303/ I'm currently very open, so go ahead and have fun! Even once the contest is completed, we might work together to improve the idea. ## More? Please ask me anything. I will be happy to answer any question, do research, and update this document asap.
