    Default Welding Tatoos?

    Default Welding tatoo

    [LEFT]As with anything regarding the art world, your choice of picture, painting, colors, etc. are a personal preference. I would suggest looking at parlors in your area and if available to custom work done by the artists there. Choose an artist you like and discuss any and all ideas you have for what would make a real stand out welding tatoo, picture, painting, it's all art and you in this case have a real choice in the subject matter. There's allot of pictures in Microsoft Office when you insert on a document, you migt look there for some ideas. I've never seen a welder tatto, welder's tatoo so it's in my opionion going to be you and the artist putting together something one of a kind and personal. Just a suggestion. Good luck, and hope you'll paste in on the board when you get it done.

    I have an idea. How about a tattoo of your skin split and it welded with metal? I think that would be neat looking. Just a thought...

    I also am a welding instructor PT so I was thinking of something to do with a tig torch creating an arc on a bright red apple.

    Default tattoo's

    If you want a really neat looking spider web design on your hand just let a 4 1/2" grinder with a wire cup brush get loose from ya, it's not as permanent as a real tattoo though, it will start to fade away after about five years or so. Dave

    I don't mean to sound rude but if you don't have anything good relating to the topic don't say it. Lets stick to some real ideas, thanks.

    Well, if your name starts with a T, you could spell your name starting with a tig tourch. Or maybe write you name or other prefered phrase with a weld bead. For example, an aluminum mig bead has very distinct ripples... If that doesn't seem right, the shower sparks from an arc can be very cool, especially as a background to another object in the foreground. I don't have any pictures of this stuff, just kinda thinking alloud.

    I do have many of the welding "tatoos" that the other guys mentioned though. The wind here in Colorado can be very bad for blowing slag and other glowing embers right down your collar! The one weakness of my leather jacket....and it finds it every time!

    Yeah I definately thought of getting something written in aluminum bead appearance.

    I am having trouble finding good examples of welds. I guess I could take some pics of my own work, it would be easier to see some pics from the internet.
