Re: Inuit Tattoo


Now it's your turn: your shirt should fool us into believing something about itself or its wearer that isn't true, whether it's that the person's been shot, THAT THEY'VE GOT A TATTOO, or that the shirt is made of bricks. Don't just show us a picture of something - turn the shirt into the thing itself.

How is it off topic, if in the derby description, tattoo's are said to be fine.. it's even in the name of the design.

This doesn't make you think the person wearing it has a tattoo, though. I mean, unless their skin color is heather grey...

Because it doesn't make it look like the person is *wearing* it. It's just a tattoo on a shirt. You need to add details to give it the illusion (or sort-of illusion due to the limitations of the derby) of being something other than just a design on a shirt. If you can do that with this you're completely welcome to resub it. ^_^

Gotcha. That makes more sense now. I can see how it doesn't really look like it is actually tattoo'd on someone
