Tattoo design help? Unsure how to finish?

I got the first half of my bioshock tattoo done and I'm going in on the 13th to get it finished. I'm unsure how I want the artist to color the background though.. could you guys give some suggestions?

I just don't want the background to be all black/shadded grey but I don't know what could be done to it. Also should I leave the leaves of the roses black and grey or get her to add green to them?

  • I like the leaves black n grey, if you did color for the shading it will pull away from the main focus in my opinion. I think shading it black n grey is the best option.

    • I looked at it again and got another idea. The ribbon almost looks unfinished so adding some grey shading to it would help. The background also looks unfinished, I would suggest using black and grey to shade around the edges and add spots here and there almost like a tarnish to make it look old/ worn if that makes any sense?

  • Wow, saying you're a bioshock fan would be an understatement lol "would you kindly". I don't know what you should do. I'm bad with this stuff. But it already looks great, so no matter what I'm pretty sure it'll come out good

  • Uhh I like the rose, it looks like it would work if you had it shaded in nicely.
