8 Bit Texas??One thing I've never had is a tattoo, and as I've gotten older the desire to never get one has slowly diminished. I'm at a point now where I think I would actually be cool with one as long as it was cool, unique and meant something to me.

That being said, I think I came up with the perfect idea for a tattoo for me, but the problem is, the image doesn't exist.

I want to get an 8-bit version of the state of Texas.

When you Google "8 Bit Texas" the first result you actually get is a piece of art my friend Lance did for me, ironic.

So, this is where I lean on you, the power of the internet. Are you an artist? Do you think you might have an idea of how to incorporate the state of Texas with an 8-bit look? For reference, I'm thinking something similar to the tree in this image.

For those of you interested, this is the state of Texas. I was thinking about incorporating the flag colors in with it as well, if that makes sense. Something simliar to this.

Now, if you were ever wondering if your art could grace the arm of someone someday, this might be your chance. I have 0 artistic ability, but there is bound to be a few of you out there who might be able to pull something like this off. Feel free to post links in the comments or graphics or posts telling me I'm an idiot for thinking about getting a tattoo.

Internet... GO!

Do what you feel you need to jack. It would be cool for now, but imagine what it will look like when your old and your skin is sagging.

Yeah, 8-bit Texas is cool. But 8-bit Jack beard? Now that would be something.

sounds like a great idea, this link tells you how to do it to any image
#8  Posted 3 years ago  |  + 2 Cool
Do it. It's your body, why not use it to express your passions? I'm going to get a triforce, AC logo, deathly hallows symbol, and possibly maybe the pure pwnage hands or something.

This may seem a tad radical, but I was planning to get tattoos of the gun shots Ezio got during the siege of Monteriggioni.

Similar to you I have 0 artistic ability, however, most higher end tattoo shops do custom designs for a tattoo and if you find an artist that seems like s/he could do the trick ask him/her if they can mock up a design for you

Sadly it was already linked to... so I can't use my awesome RvB skills:

You are a god damned idiot.... I would like to prove this mathematically if I may...

I think it would look great, especially with your family living there for so long. Should make a Texas coat of arms with it.

I tattoo needs to be an expression of yourself. Will you still be proud of this tattoo in 20 yrs. I know that I am going to get 3 tattoos. One will be a memorial for my grandparents. The other one is a skull with a irish brotherhood knot. And the third will be my grandpas cattle ranch brand. He passed away september 30th, 2010. He is my inspiration for two of my tattoos.

What starts off as a Texas tattoo looks like a Florida tattoo in about 30 years.

It's your body, do what you want with it, Jack. Just think about what it's gonna look like in 20+ years.

Finished one. It's on a grey background so you can see it easier.

However, it looks more blurred than 8-bit when it's not in photoshop
#1  Posted 3 years ago
Sounds like a really cool, unique image! My only caution: don't get it too big. Large tattoos, especially ones with large blocks of color, rarely look very cool. They look more like a toddler rubbed finger paint all over someone.

You want:
Unique, detailed, modestly sized, but above all, well thought out.

Can't wait to see it!

8bit Texas? This actually sounds like a job for my amazing artistic ability in MS paint! I'll cook up something later.

I wonder what a 8-bit Florida looks like. Probably like a censored penis.
