Spalmer1 got their new tattoo by running a design contest:
Tribal Phoenix Design for Ex-NBA Player
Check out Spalmer1's Tattoo contest…
What's your vision?
1. I want a tattoo of a Phoenix, which looks tribal. If you don't know what a Phoenix is, read this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoenix_(mythology) 2. Below the Phoenix, as if the Phoenix is rising out of it, I want an image of a basketball. So the bottom would be a basketball, and the basketball would look like it's surrounded by flames as the Phoenix rises out of it. 3. Then, I want the letters SB in small but noticeable type somewhere on the design. The letters could be simple on the basketball, or somehow hidden artistically within the design. 4. I would like to see both color and black and white versions. The color version should be bright reds, oranges, yellows with contrasting black lines. Let me give you some context on the meaning behind this tattoo, which I hope will give you inspiration. This tattoo is for an ex-NBA player. After leaving the NBA, his life took several turns and everything he had worked for was gone. He was forced to rebuild. He was bitter about how his basketball career ended and never believed he would ever touch a basketball again. But then life took more interesting twists and turns. And he founded a basketball training company called "Smart Ballers." So the tattoo is a metaphor of him rising from the ashes of failure to rebuild a basketball legacy again.
I have attached several designs of tribal-style Phoenix in order of what I like best. So I want you to take these ideas and create something original. Adding a basketball to the flames below the Phoenix, which it is rising out of.
