scottm20X got their new tattoo by running a design contest:
desert landscape tattoo symbolizing spiritual journey
Check out scottm20X's Tattoo contest…
I am a 38 year old male, a 4 on the enneagram if that means anything to you.
What's your vision?
UPDATE: I was thinking a tattoo in the realism style (with full color to capture the sunset color) but I’m open to other creative flourishes if you have vision for something different. So, I've been living in the Sonoran desert in Arizona for the last several years, but I'm moving out of state. I am mourning leaving this beautiful place, and I want a half-sleeve tattoo to memorialize how much it has meant to me. These years here have been a spiritual wilderness season for me, a real dry time spiritually, but it has also been a time of immense spiritual growth. The tattoo I’m envisioning is a desert landscape featuring all of the things I’ve grown to love about this desert, but with a “river of life” flowing down the main mountain peak (I am including specific images of the different animals, cacti and sunsets I want you to feature in the tattoo, but you can get creative with whatever you envision for the “river of life”). This should be a half sleeve, and I’m OK if it spills over onto my shoulder blade and chest a bit. The first two images give you a sense of what saguaros on the face of a sonoran desert mountain look like, and I want the tattoo to show this same diversity, with some saguaros small and slender, and some with many “arms” branching out. The third image shows the shape of the main mountain I want you to use, and the fourth image is an isolated peak I want you to add just to the left of this main mountain. The fifth image shows the setting sun peaking through a saguaro, and I would love to replicate this, including the sun beams that appear to be shooting out from the sun (I also want to make sure the cholla cactus in the bottom middle of this picture are reflected in the tattoo). The sixth image shows the dramatic colors of the sunsets here in the desert, and I want to capture an element of this as well. The seventh image shows some of the saguaro blossoms I want to show on one of the larger saguaros closer to the foreground, and the eighth image shows a western desert owl nesting inside of a saguaro, and I want to reflect this in one of the larger foreground saguaros as well (could be the same one as the one with the blossoms). The remaining images are pictures of various desert animals that I want to show up somewhere in the tattoo, with the hawk soaring in the sky.
