  • ok so its only a henna one but i wanted to get someone to design a logo for the band for cheap:whistle:




    any thoughts about it?



    i think the hollowed out Ruby works quite well against the bold Style Emeralds, but i think the way the emeralds was drawn does kinda look like a 5 year old did it

  • nah, brown is cool. although i might point out that in the culture that it comes from its considered a feminine thing. bit like wearing two earings over here. i like it. will look good on a drumkit/banner. theres only so much u can do with one colour though.

  • yeah i was ignorant to green henna. plus i wanted it more for the design than the tattoo really. give me something to work on.


    just out of curiosity have any of you listened to anything by my band? i was wondering if you thought it suited.

  • well the plan is to copy the image off my arm and then piddle around with it a bit in photoshop etc and thinkin about background images and colours and stuff.

    :eek:Sh*t! no one told me that about the earings - I've got 6 in one side and 3 in the other. That explains why I'm so in touch with my feminin side;)

    ooh, sounds sexy. i mean say if you just had your lobes done once each with dangly pink studs. you could get away with it but a few people would giggle.

    Yeah I used to go out with a girl from Manchester who thought it was really weird for me to have both my ears pierced. I'm guessing that's a northern prejudice as nobody would bat an eyelid down here - That will be great when I move :D

  • im not sexist, twas an example. how about wearing high heals?


    paddy, i think the only reason it looks childish is cause its not all exact size. its a great start and im surprised its that neat, henna is a difficult substance to control. once u have a bit of a photoshop it'll be even better.

  • I like it :) I would've expected something a bit more... wacky... for your band though.

  • well the girl doing it never had the pleasure of listening to my band, and i did my best to describe the band (which is a fucking challenge at the best of times)

  • Thank goodness it was the logo you wanted and not the tattoo;)

    if you want a logo for your band...why not throw open a design competition for the arty types on here ?
    prize for the winner could be a CD of your bands music:)
