Zoe it's times like these when I wish I had a scanner! I'm an artist with a bijillion drawings and painting of snakes, geckos, iguanas, etc. I'd love to share some with you. I have a design inspired by my burmese python, Bandula. This idea is to get a rather large tattoo of him 'crawling up my leg' is the best way I can put it.The tail ends and curls around my ankle area, and the rest of the snake 'coils' around my leg until the face ends on my hip. I can't wait to get this tatt, but it'll be well over a grand. Eh!

You can also get branded, pierced, or scalped when your there.

When I get around to it I will be getting a snake armband (probably a python as if its constricting my bicep)

I think this will go well with the scorpion and tarantula on my shoulders
Yah but have you ever smelled cheese? Some of it stinks eh?

i cant really help you with the design process but i recommend . They have a great, clean shop and some great artists. I especially like Rob's work (out of the pics on the site) I got my piercing done here and plan to get my tattoos as well.

Also Bill at Abstract Arts is good. That's who i go to...

Oh Gawd Zoe, I've been looking for snake tat ideas for AGES and I came to the conclusion that finding a half decent realistic snake that isn't a cobra with evil eyes and fangs is probably the hardest thing to find...

if its really that hard to find a good snake pattern, find an artist that will make a custom design (i would recommend this for any tattoo anyways, that way you will be the only one that has it)
If you are lucky, you can find a snake loving tattoo artist. Bring in pics of your snakes, or snakes that you would like to have in the design. You could make the 'outline' of the snake anyway you want, and the artist shouldnt have a problem adding the right pattern for ths snake, even if its not in the same pose as the pic.

I have a Kenyan Sand Boa tattoed on my shoulder blade that was from a photograph (Very Nice), and a Argentine Horned Frog on my other shoulder blade. I am going to get a dwarf caiman head on one part of my lower back, a lizard on the other part of my lower back and then an alligator snapper in the middle of my back! But I won't get those for a bit.

Here's one that a guy from ChondroForum is getting... this is the picture that it's based on :

And here's the outline that's been done so far:

I thought it was pretty cool Hopefully he doesn't mind me sharing it here... lol...

One day when I find the perfect tattoo, I'll get one done I don't want to have just anything... it's got to be something that I know I'll enjoy forever
