My 1st tattoo, Ankh = ancient Egyptian hieroglyph. With a background of just blue watercolor or all colors. Help me. Please
Hello!! Thank you for choosing to help me! I'll try my best to keep this short and straight to the point
Size= small (but not tiny)
Location= Left side of my rib cage
The ankh size= about the size of an avg house key or maybe abit bigger
The main design is the Ankh (ancient Egyptian hieroglyph, meaning eternal life) but to me it resembles way more than that, I've given it my own meaning. I won't bore you with the cheesiness of it all .... So what I have not made up my mind about yet is whether or not I want it to be colored in with black or not. Which is why I will have a few different examples, and you choose whichever you prefer to draw as all the examples share the same main point with minor changes
Also blue is my favorite color ever! Has been for YEARS I will never get bored of it, feel free to use as many different shades as you possibly can!
Feel free to throw in some "sparkle" example: Cinderellas fairy godmother, the cute tiny stars and dots that make the magic happen. In white. (Or fire works if you don't know what I'm referring to)
Also feel free to galaxyfy it .. Throw in a galaxy theme to the background
Example 1: the ankh colored in black, surrounded by blue water color ink style, more magical and fluid like water rather than smokey or paint splashes.
Example 2: the ankh colored in black, surrounded by all colors not just blue
Example 3: the ankh NOT colored in, have it as just a bubble outline, making blue the watercolor ink background BE its color in a way. Almost like the ankh is submerged in the blueness of the water color ink
Example 4: the ankh NOT colored in so its just a bubble outline, and the watercolor paint/ink is not just blue, but super colorful, again like example 3, making all the colors be the color of the ankh inside and out
Example 5: rather than the ankh being submerged in the colors around it, have the colors around it (be it blue or colorful) MAKE the shape of the ankh...
Example 6: the ankh is not submerged in anything at all, simply outlined with black and coloured in with either watercolour blue ink, or watercolour all colourful ink
What I mean when I say "submerged" / "surrounded" is the colours don't just stop around the ankh but they are all around it, think of it like having a small object on a table (a key) and spilling water on it, the water goes all around the key that's sort of one of the themes I am looking for
Attached are some themes that I have in mind the dear surrounded by color is what I have in mind for example 5
The one picture of the blonde girl with curly hair is just to show you that this is where I would like to get my tattoo, maybe abit wider than her and not as long??
I hope I was as clear as possible and you don't find this too confusing .. Just have fun and pick which ever you feel the most comfortable and confident with drawing
Thank you thank you thank you so much!

I didn't know exactly how it would turn out because I can't quite picture it, but if in your opinion based on experience... if you think it would be interesting to combine ALL my examples together, then feel free to do that aswell! Who knows maybe it will be exactly what I'm looking for.
