Cyborg Mechanical Tattoo Design

  • Status: Pending

Contest Brief

Update: sealed the contest as requested.

Looking for someone to design a tattoo for my side rib cage, under the arm. I'm open to a shoulder design too since there are moving parts.

I know there can only be one winner, and I do not want to waste people's time. A crude drawing is ok to win, if you are willing to refine or make a detailed version afterwards, which I will pay extra for you to do.

Not cartoon like or new school, but like a cyborg (think Terminator) which had its skin ripped showing what is inside. I like grayscale for the metal, other colors optional if there are any hydraulic hoses, etc. Cogs are cool, but not just random, they need to have a function, even if you can't see the rest of what it is connected to.

Setting up as competition because you are more creative than me.

- Realism, mechanical realism
- Flesh ripped showing the inside
- 3 dimensional
- Image needs to pop
- Cyborg
- Maybe 10" x 7"

Since this will be on me forever, it has to be a very solid design. Please only reach out if you are an expert in your field. Attaching a couple photos I've seen that I feel look good.

    This is not a "guaranteed" contest, so the prize cannot be shared. :(

      No. It is a guarenteed contest. I need to look into how to share the prize.

      Hi. There are no designs (as is) that I would tattoo on my body. There are a few that have potential with modifications. That said, I do not have high confidence extending the contest will be beneficial.

      panjamon, if two of the designs are yours, great, but it appears the others were not your work, which is unethical. You should focus on doing a great job on other projects, as I am no longer comfortable working with you.

    I have something to say here... actually it’s not a good idea to have a tatto under the arm let me clarify myself ... first it won’t be visible and it will also be a hindrance for the tatto on outer side of arm and it is really not a good idea to have a tatto on above and below rather I would suggest get the shoulder tattoo extended to chest or back that’s a bit better idea I’m working on the shoulder arm part as of now will put the idea soon

    If there are a couple cool unrefined entries, I would consider hiring multiple people freelance to work on their ideas afterwards to fine tune at a cost.

    One may end up a tattoo, and the other my desktop background :)

    dont make it CONTEST ..because just think of the time that the freelancers will have to spend for this especialyl those freelancers that are skilled enough and has the ability to comply such requirement.. this is a big project by just realizing how big the canvas and the detail you want to see.. maybe you can add more or increase the contest prize even higher.. but for me.. this project should not be done through contest because everyone will surely effort for this.. especially those skilled individuals but at the end you will choose only 1 design which is quite sad for other artists who spent hard times illustrating ang conceptualizing everything.. i mean its normal to lose on a contest .. but it depends on the contest you joined in.. actually there was similar scenario which is my basis of saying this,

      I understand your point, but wanted to see creative ideas, not get stuck with one person who would not be able to produce something worthy of a tattoo.

      A crude drawing is fine for the contest. I would be happy to work with the winner to fine tune afterwards for addtional money.

      I thought about increasing the prize, and still might. A crude design is enough to win, and I will pay extra for a detailed intricate drawing. I just wanted to avoid paying $1,000 for the contest and another $1,000 to fine tune.

    Ok so I think I got some idea here..... using hydronic hose and cogs/gears as a integral part of body like instead of bones metallic part that work together to make your body function is that what u mean by cyborg ,.... realism and working /functioning ?

    ofcourse its normal to get lose on a contest .. but its quite depressing realizing that you spend DAYS just to render it .. but at the end you still lose.. but ofcourse as a participant its our job to accept defeat...but please , if you think this project is big . please dont make it a contest because you will just choose 1 design at the end wihich is quite comfortable for you.. but just try to realize how big the effort that participants did for this project. because its not a piece of cake project...it is not just a simple logo creation or brochure creation that you can finished within a day or even just hours and then submit it and you can move to another cotnest .. its not like that.... so my professional advice is please hire someone ..

      I understand that and was thinking about how NOT to waste people's time. I had a hard time selecting one person to develop something for me as I need createive ideas.

      I'm ok with seeing a general concept, and that could very well be a winner. Then if selected I will work directly with the winner, pay extra, to develop a highly detailed image.
