    Thanks for posting man. This is definitely getting used. I have a date set for December 2nd. I will most likely be getting tattooed for 10-15 hours. At the end of November I will be meeting with my artist to plan out the piece, meaning, I need LOTS AND LOTS OF IMAGES! If anyone has any good shots or any of their favorite shots please share!

    Right now I am for sure including the following...

    -Ultra Maxima clam
    -ORA red planet acro
    -Rose bubble tip anemone hosting clownfish
    -Rasta zoas
    -Millepora of some sort
    -Forest fire montipora digiata

    I am very open to any ideas. Photorealism is the focus of this tattoo. Keep in mind that this is a whole sleeve. I have lots of space to work with. Post pictures please! They dont have to be your own! Ideally I would love to just show my artist this thread and be able to reference it.

    You're getting your tattoo done on my birthday :lol:

    I can't wait to see how it looks! You said it's okay if I pull some pics of corals from the internet?

    You should do a massive bristle worm with chain link around your neck. Oh and a Pistol Shrimp with two guns smoking. Dude I could go all day ;)


    Can't wait to see everything when complete

    It would be pretty cool if you had a little Zoa Garden :)
