Any artists want to make some money?

Hi peeps. Okay, confession time. A few years back I did a stupid thing. I got a chest tattoo without checking the artist’s previous work. I figured that the design I wanted was simple enough that I didn’t really need Carvaggio. Turns out I did.

Drink it in.

And now you know why I go by “Unshaved” Mouse.

Sooo…I’ve been wanting to get this fixed pretty much since I got the damn thing but the question has always beenย how.ย So I’m turning to you guys. If there’s anyone out there who reads this blog with some artistic chops, draw me up a design and send it into unshavedmouse@gmail.com. If your design gets chosen you shall be reimbursed fifty yankee dollars. Couple of things to note.

  1. Feel free to make the design your own. As long as the basic idea of an eclipsed sun ringed by eight moons is still there, you are free to experiment in any style, colour, motif, whateva. At this stage I’m just looking for a really striking design.
  2. There may not be a winner. If I don’t see a design that doesn’t really speak to me…I’m not going to spend many hours getting it excruciatingly and permanently engraved on my skin. Sorry. I’m weird like that.
  3. ย Lastly, please share this to any artist friends you know.

That about does her, thanks guys.

  1. Good luck, Mouse. I really don’t know anything about tatoos (and I don’t wanna know xD), but I wish you the best of lucks. ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. You know what they say: if your hair covers your boobs, you’re a beautiful mermaid. Which means it’s okay to have a tattoo of a juggling octopus.

    That’s a lot of black, though – I feel for you. I’m addicted to Tattoo Nightmares and that cover-up is probably going to be massive. I’ll ask around.

  3. OK, fun story. A few years ago I was listening to a morning radio show and they had a contest where people called in and told them about their bad tattoo. Whoever they determined was the worst would win free tattoo removal surgery. The best submission by FAR was the woman who had a tattoo of a fairy on her stomach. Doesn’t sound bad, right? Well she got pregnant after getting the tattoo, and ended up having a C-section birth. The C-section ended up cutting right through her tattoo, resulting in her having a tattoo of a beheaded fairy.

    1. On the plus side, that kid now gets to have an origin story of being born from the severed neck of one of the fair folk. Sounds pretty metal.

  4. This is why I never got a tattoo. If I would regret it later, it would be hard to get rid of it. And besides, with my bad case of psoriasis, it is not a good idea for me to do much with my skin anyway.

  5. Wow, that actually looks devilishly close to the tattoo I designed for my sister. Except she got the entire solar system, meaning I get to occasionally prod the small of her back and tell her “I’m poking uranus”, making her giggle/roll her eyes.

  6. Hi Mouse!
    I have friend who’s simply superb at drawing. I’ve sent him a link and let’s see what he’ll come up with! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š
