I am looking for help from an artist in designing my tattoo and integrating a red lotus flower with the spanish word "escuchando".
Escuchando means means listening in spanish. Red lotus flowers symbolize the original nature of the heart. It is the lotus of love, compassion, passion, activity and all the qualities of the heart
I have some ideas about how this could look...
possibly the lotus flower could exist above the word and the stems at the bottom of the flower could morph into the word moving to the side of the flower...curving upward in some cool script like lettering. Since the word is spanish, it would be interesting to integrate the lettering of the word in a "spanish style"...maybe "old world spanish map" style or in a way that felt like the word was written by a spanish aristoctat to their lover.... I want it to feel romantic and soft but also secret and whisper-like as opposed to loud and overwhelming. The tattoo will be high on my side, on my ribcage and I want it to feel sexy and beautfiul. The flower could be bigger than the word...but I want the word to have a presence.
I am attaching a few pictures. I really like the "tattoo flower image" and could see the stems below the flower interegrating themselves into the word "escuchando"....like they could swirl up into the word and the word would then move to the side and curve up along the flower...
The other lotus images may be helpful in making the flower look a little more "lotus like". I want the flower to be red in color and but the lettering of the word black
Also, the text I am attaching...I like, but it could be more spanish in feel...curvier but definitely in script.
I want the word escuchando to be in ALL LOWER CASE letters to have a softer feel to it and it to connect to the flower in some way...through the stems or up the side of the flower or in some interesting, interconnected way.
The tattoo will be 2-4 inches in length but I am sure I can adjust the size shrink or expand to what I want.
I am also open to ideas the designers may have....
