I am currently studying multimedia design, graduating this semester. In my time off I have designed a tatto that I really want. It’s inspired by a band that I really like’s newest album. The band is called “Bring me the Horizon” with their newest album “Post Human: Survival Horror”. The roses used is a reaccuring theme in their songs from this album, with the unicursal hexagram in the middle being their official logo.
I came up with the design underneath here, which I really thought looked perfect. I contacted a tattoo artist who then told me that the yellow-ish color would be a bad idea for a tattoo since it would fade fast, and can often look a bit weird.
I’ve tried with a few other colors since, but can’t quite get near the same satisfaction I had with this color. I was hoping someone here could potentially help or come with a suggestion for a specific color to try, as some of you probably know a lot more about color than I do.
These are some of the other colors that I have tried that I think work best. But again, I still really like the original one I created. (dont mind the background on the ones below. I put the tattoo on a picture of my skin, to see what it would look like)
The color can’t be too bright, and especially not bright yellow, like the original design.
Any help here would be very much appriciated, since a tattoo is permenant. I have been told by friends to just go with whatever color I personally like the best, but being tought graphic design kinda messes with that a bit, since I can’t help thinking of what colors best compliment the roses and its vines, contrasts and so on.
