So, I have been doing some research for my next tattoo, and have stumbled across the idea of a "Steampunk" theme.  Any input is welcome on this front.   new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif  new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif

Right now, I am just collecting images to put into a folder of ideas for my artist (A.K.A., my husband).

Only thing for sure right now...there will be a male figure in my design.  And, he will have a striking resemblance to Geddy.   wink.gif  wink.gif

Well Steampunk is the mix of old and new ... so anything which has Victoriana/cogs/dirigibles/keys and you're set lol

Found a few nice pieces which might inspire a bit of your tatt ...

Cool idea!

Those designs that Foxxi posted are great. My daughter created a character after hearing Caravan and I told her that it was part of a concept...

You can also look at pictures of the "new" Tomorrowland at various Disneylands:

Thanks for the input.  I am thinking about a dude with mechanical wings, going with the "Clockwork Angels" theme.  Talked a bit with hubby about it...haven't told him that I want it to resemble Geddy yet.  Doesn't have to be EXACT, I was thinking more the hair, jawline and body...oh, and the nose, and the eyes and the... tongue.gif

Hubby has a bit of a jealousy thing with Geddy.  Maybe if I took that picture of Dirk off of the ceiling over my side of the bed...  z7shysterical.gif  z7shysterical.gif

Maybe dressed like Robert Downey Jr. or Jude Law in Sherlock Holmes?

Dunno...still in the planning stages.  Hopefully we can have a design worked out and ready to go by mid January.  1022.gif

I agree with that statement, Kahme.

Geddy as a Clockwork Angel. Sounds about right to me. biggrin.gif

I'm really diggin' it the more I get into the style/culture.  Bought some novels this last weekend, plus I am already working on my Steampunk Halloween costume!  tongue.gif   May even do a slightly Steampunk-influenced outfit for the show in Cleveland!  1022.gif  I've always been intrigued by it, but I never did much research until now.  It's pretty damn cool!
