    I have been struggling for nearly a year trying to decide what I want to get as a tattoo. I have a few ideas but none that I have said "YES this is the one!". I was scrolling through pinterest today and found this:

    And then started wondering, could this be turned into a horse tattoo because ultimately that is what I want. Then I did a bit of searching but this was the best I could come up with:

    I am looking for someone to help me turn the frog idea into a horsey type of tattoo. I'm looking for anyone who is willing to give it a try, to help inspire me with this one. I think this idea has a lot of potential but I'm having trouble coming up with how it will look on my own. I am fully capable of designing my own tattoo once I have in mind what I want, so I won't use whatever you come up with without tweaking it a bit myself, but I just need some help in terms of inspiration. Anyone willing to give it a go? I would prefer not to have the horse actually coming out of the "glass". I just want to make sure it still looks horsey. But I give free rein to anyone who wants to try, come up with whatever you can to inspire me, even if it's a super quick sketch!

    If you go into a tattoo shop (a reputable one of course) and explain to them what you want, they can probably make a sketch and collaborate with you

    I'd go talk to the artist - anyone who you trust permanently altering your body should have the skills to draw something like that for you from your description. It's an unusual style, so not all artists would be skilled at doing it. Looks cool, though!

    A good tattoo artist will be your best bet. Drawing on a tablet or with, say, colored pencils, is pretty different from ink and skin, especially for something like that.

    It took me a second to get the frog :p I'm agreeing with everyone else, take the pic to your artist of choice and see how they interpret it. I think it will look stunning if done by the right person

    But horrific if done by the wrong one :p it'll be tricky for sure, wouldn't trust it to just anyone.

    I guess the same can be said for any ink, but agree the right artist will be critical here, do you have one in mind OP?

    Definitely get a skilled artist familiar with tattoos to design your piece, it is something worth paying for.

    I don't believe in tattoos they are unnecessary.

    Lol, I believe in tattoos they exist, not questionable like Bigfoot or Unicorns!
