    Need help with tatoo design. Art work added.

    I am looking at getting a sleave done on my right arm. The botom working up is going to be a Koi swimming up my arm with water and the lotus flowers and then transitioning upstream into a stone dragon statue at the top. There needs to be 3 of the Koi progressively getting larger as they swim upstream. The problem I am haveing is that I dont like any of the designs for the koi I am seeing on the net or the dragons. Looking for someone to design the different aspects of the tatoo that would flow togather nicely. I am not worthy artest to produce this level of art so I am reaching out for help. I am willing to pay a reasonable price for the design's I like best. I want the bright colors of traditional but a new design. Let the drawing begin!

    PS. Will be a few months before starting the tatoo so there is time to let those creative juices flow and put the detial into it. If you have a price in mind for this kind of work let me know.

    Aditional info. The koi swimming upstream represents the struggle we have from day to day. The torents of the water is the struggle it self. The stone dragon represents the destination not yet reached at the top of the struggle.

    Might be worth sketching out your rough ideas, even if youíre not totally happy with them, and talk them through with a professional tattooist. Iíve just been looking on the net, and there are some beautiful koi designs out there for inspiration.
    Good planets are hard to find - help look after ours.
