Design my tattoo!
Philosophy for the tattoo:
Essentially my mantra is that I want to view my life as borderless, not limited to the country I'm in, I strive to keep relationships beyond borders, find stories from abroad that provide perspective to my life and broaden my horizons. I'm a documentary maker, traveller and passionate about sport and community. Relationships are at the core of everything I do.
I'm looking for a tattoo design for my arm that incorporates two elements:
- the first element is the must have - the word "BORDERLESS" in all caps - potentially the edges of the letters could be soft or fade off - as not to have hard borders on the letters. Would be nice to see the word integrated somehow into the design - like it's the centre piece and everything grows around it.
- the second element is open to interpretation - I want to incorporate aspects of the world into the design, whether that be geographical features, country outlines or a mix of other concepts. I don't want any addition text, so more landforms, landmarks or topography that fits the philosophy.
These are some countries/regions that mean something to me are: Australia, USA, Austria, Nigeria, South Africa, Middle East... cities - Melbourne, Australia; Austin, TX; LA, California; Tijuana, Mexico; Greensboro, NC; Vienna, Austria; Istanbul, Turkey; Beirut, Lebanon; Cape Town, South Africa.
Love mountains, and dramatic landscapes - like Cape Town for example. But also love cities, and inner city grungy areas like Fitzroy/Collingwood in Melbourne or the Arts District in LA.
The font should be Gotham Bold all caps -https://www.cufonfonts.com/font/gotham
Should be 7cm (H) x 12cm (W) (or in that ratio)
Tattoo will have no colour as apart of it
I do like the stick and poke style tattoos that incorporate nice shading and gradients with the black ink - like the designs of Ninja Bread Boy (https://www.instagram.com/ninjabreadboy/) or Fine Line Tattoos (https://www.instagram.com/fine.line.tattoos/)
