I'm a Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC). I call in airstrikes from airplanes, UAVs and helicopters. Drop bombs on bad guys' heads.
I want you guys to create a military-inspired tattoo design for me. I'm looking for a retro/vintage, SINGLE COLOR (gradient/shading is OK) coat of arms or emblem (like a State Seal) type design. Will be approx 6-9", so can't be too busy. Would like it to look like a stamp or a stencil, kind of grungy. Incorporate SOME of the following items: eagle, bear, skulls (maybe wearing turbans?), stars, bombs (the kind dropped from aircraft), waves, clouds, A-10 Warthog, , north/nautical star, sword, gears (round metal, with teeth, like from a machine) vignette.
Remember: vintage/retro/grungy. Be creative and feel free to add elements not listed.
I've included the design I started, but feel free to deviate from mine; that's why I posted this contest. I was going to continue the stars and skulls around the border and lower the bombs to block some of the skulls. Even if I finished mine, I'd have to have someone make the images/size/spaces perfect, and I'm not very good on the computer. So I figured I'd take my idea to the professionals to design something! I also uploaded some retro eagle emblems I thought were pretty cool. Also uploaded is a War Machine logo if you can fit some of it in somehhow.
If I get two designs that are completely different, but still awesome, I'll probably purchase them, so go ahead and go crazy. (one that looks like my idea and one that's different.)
