how should i finish my tattoo? i asked this a few days ago but didnt get as many answers as i was hoping for.. thanks everyone!

i asked this a few days ago but got only 3 answers & i was hoping for a little more input. so far 2/3 are for red flowers.

i have my outline done for my dragon and tiger tattoo on my upper back. since the start i've been a little hesitant about getting it in color because im a bigger fan of black and grey. when i went to my artist the first time, i asked for a little color to be on the dragon and tiger and some pink flowers, but i want it to be primarily b&g. now im kind of double thinking that and was thinking if i should just get it in all b&g except for some red flowers and petals kind of blowing through it. what do you all think? i really like both my ideas for a little color on the dragon/tiger as a focal point but i dont know if it would look funny in an all grey backgound. any and all comments are appreciated! THANK YOU! =)

  • AWESOME!!!!!! I think a bit of color would look good...maybe something a bit subdued, you know? Softer colors rather then bright ones, if that makes sense. Although I do agree with the other ladies...maybe even waiting a bit...until you're completely positive of what you want. And PLEEEEZZZEEE post some more pics when you're done. I'd love to see how it turns out!

  • I would add some color to it. Maybe claws, eyes, tails. I would talk to your tattoo artist as they are going to know what will look the best.

  • I would stick with B&G for right now, wait awhile. If you are happy with it the way it is then great. Can't you go back and add color later?

  • This would be so much easier for me to decide if I could see it first, but adding color to the flowers could be good. Ask your artist if there is any way he can paint the areas you may want to color before making it permanent.

  • I would have it removed. I think tattoos are trashy

  • if it were me id go with your second option of total black and gray shading with the pink flowers adding good contrast.....but you also have to remember tattooing is a form of self expression and this is going to be on your body permanently so ultimately the decision is yours.

  • OMG!!!!! You are a strong woman to have gone through this. I have wanted a tattoo, but I'm a baby when it comes to pain. I think it looks awesome, but I was thinking that it might look nice if the eyes were bright colors, the flowers of course. Is that fire surrounding because it would be cool if you added some red and orange to that. And then leave the rest of it black and gray. It might look weird if you threw random colors in their. Post when you have it finished.
