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.
