Art & Design
I am 29 year old male. I am always trying to improve myself and to be become a better, stronger person every single day. I’m also an entrepreneur and into sports such as martial arts and I workout at the gym regularly and have an athletic body. What I value the most in the character of a man is: strength, willpower, always being the leader, overcoming any obstacle, facing fears, being highly respected, never give up, only victory. As well being gentle and caring for your family, being a fortress for your loved ones so that they always feel secure. I also value freedom very much, that is why I left my job several years ago, I could not take someone to be giving me orders. That is why I started my own business, to be my own boss. I love luxury things and I set goals to achieve them.
What's your vision?
I am seeking a design for my first tattoo. I believe this will be the biggest one that I will have. I plan on locating the tattoo on the inner side of my upper arm (let arm that is). The design should be done completely in black and white (no colors). It should also be borderless, in the sense that I don't want it to stand out as a distinct shape ("Hey, look, there's a circle on my arm!"). Instead, I would like it to kind of amorphously blend into my arm. Here is the idea that I had in mind: Throughout the whole tattoo I want you to write the Portuguese word “Vitória” which means Victory. I got this idea from a tattoo on one of my favourite MMA fighters Vitor Belfort. I want the word to be illustrated in cursive font. That means that in everything I do I’m always there to win. I play to win. As far as themes that are massively important to me, I have three main ones: The first is the idea is of regular self-reflection and improvement. In other words, I want to be reminded to constantly push myself to be a better, stronger person in mind, body and spirit. On those days when I feel down and out, and when self-pity starts creeping in, I want to be able to look in the mirror and use the reflection to snap out of it: to have a renewed sense of what is important in life, to be thankful for my amazing, kind and supportive friends and family, and to be appreciative of all the cool adventures and opportunities that I've had. Second, I want luxury lifestyle to be represented in the tattoo. Third is leadership, victory and strength. The tattoo should not be cluttered and should not have shades (actually you can add shades if you think it will look good and elegant), I want it to look elegant.
Attached: example of my current body type, some examples for inspiration. I have uploaded a couple of pics with tattoos I like, but don't feel boxed-in by them. The tattoo should be in a way simple/filigrane and not overloaded. Avoid big black areas. But by "not overloaded" I do not mean simple — the tattoo should not be too simple. Feel free to contact me for more info or if you have any questions! Made the contest blind!
