tbDl got their new tattoo by running a design contest:
Make a geometric or nerdy forearm tattoo
Check out tbDl's Tattoo contest…

What's your vision?
I would like to have a new tattoo spanning my left forearm. A nerdy / scientific / geometric design is what I would like to have here. Feel free to also include an idea for the biceps/triceps area – I don't wanna end up with a complete sleeve but there might be bars or arrows (see below) For reference, I also included pictures of the tattoos I already have: – geometric sleeve with just lines and dots all black on my right arm including patterns and "success" in Klingon language (Star Trek) - bear on my upper back, also just lines and dots - Batman on my right chest The new tattoo should fit the geometric approach that I have with my tattoos so far. It doesn't have to be that bold and can be finer but I don't want to break the overall style idea. The tattoo should include or consist of different elements that should be connected (on the forearm; single elements on biceps/triceps may be single). These are some ideas objects/motifs that I like. ALL(!) are optional and just ideas. Feel free to come up with something as long as you can explain their scientific / nerdy background. - arrows like https://i.pinimg.com/736x/37/1f/40/371f40ad92226ee7c5d413d17be342a1.jpg - bars like http://www.thisistattoo.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/line-tattoo-designs-65.jpg - chemical structure of Oxytocin (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxytocin#/media/File%3AOxytocin_with_labels.png) - abstraction of a chemical structure like the one of Ethanol (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethanol) - elements from the plaques of the the NASA probes Voyager (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voyager_Golden_Record) or Pioneer (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pioneer_plaque#/media/File%3APioneer_plaque_sun.svg) - a bird/angel wing as long as it is VERY abstract might be nice – it could be used as frame or as a connector What should NOT be a part: - words - faces I'm very excited about your ideas! :-)
The finalist should provide the work as a vector file. During the competition, please provide the pure design as well as a rough fit on the picture of my left arm as provided.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Tattoo starts at €269.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their tattoo.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
tbDl collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
