So, what do you think about the owl and deer designs for tattoo?

The deer design is pretty cool, but not cool enough to just be a tattoo on its own. It's cool if it has a meaning, but just by itself it looks kind of silly, like "Why do you have a deer on your arm?" "Oh I just wanted a deer" "Oh...". It's neat, but it's not artistic enough in my opinion to be regarded as something I'd be willing to put on my body just for aesthetic purposes. If I'm going to get a tattoo just for the design, not for the meaning it is going to be a SLAMMING tattoo, not just something that looks kind of cool, you know? For me it would have to mean something. I don't really like the owl, it kind of looks like an angry doe with a beak.
Hope I helped.

I'm not particularly a big fan.
I dislike colored inks and also blockish works of art.
Mind you I did date a girl who had a beautiful owl with outstretched wings on her back. It was a work of art and I liked it. It was however, one tone black and not blockish. It molded to her body which is a large part of what I believe gives a tattoo it's impact.
It's like taking a good photo... yes, the object is important, but equally so, so it the back-draw. You can't focus on one without thinking about the other less your work appear amateurish.
