Custom Tattoo symbol

Post by DickyDck » Oct 14, 2013 7:43 pm

Hello! I'm going to explain this as best as I can. I had a someone draw up my name in Chinese. T clarify, I am Chinese, I just had this person make the symbols nice and artsy for me, so I'm not looking for a translation. I only finished 2 of the tattoos, and the third was never done, and I've lost the stencil. Is there a way for you to take a look at my existing 2 tattoos, and then make the third symbol similar in style so that I can finish this tattoo that is many years overdue?

You can post an image here, and I can see if I either have an image/stencil of the character you want in the right style, or evaluate if it's possible for one of my calligraphers to create the style custom for you.

I couldn't figure out how to put a picture on the post itself, so I attached it as a file. The file is of my exiting 2 symbols that were drawn up free hand, and no electronic version will match the art style. the third symbol is this...

but I would like to see if I can get the stroke styles similar to my first 2 so it doesn't conflict too badly.

I of course am willing to donate to you if you can help me out with this, My birthday is coming up in about a month and I was trying to get this finished after a decade of sleeping with unfinished ink on my back :)

Random off topic, could you check status on the chop I ordered last month? Thank you much!

I looked at all my fonts. There's no exact match, but a few are close:
http://www.orientaloutpost.com/charimg. ... =%E5%BE%B7
http://www.orientaloutpost.com/charimg. ... =%E6%9D%8E

I need a name or order number to check on that chop order. But they always take at least 5 weeks. Probably coming by next week if you ordered a month ago.
