  • Scroll saw pattern from a tattoo design

    I have to admit that all the work for just a tad of sawing is a pain in the aarasses area-- New word?-- sometimes I did wonder just how many more darn holes was I going to have to thread-- now I have discovered the wonderful world of what ever this kick is I am on and having a ball--But -now here comes the kinky part-- my son (Tony) is a tato artist--so we have people in all the time getting inked- well I do get a lot of sales from these folks so I can't complain now can I?-But I was handed a tato pattern yesterday and was told -- Try to see what you can do with this and if it looks and it will be on permant display on the business end of the door of his shop and a cool $100. made on it as well-- Note I said this is a tatoo pattern I was given and yes it is a skull and a rose-- well money talks around here and so I have the challange of making a whatever out of it- but I did like the challange in incorperating intarsia- segmentation and fret work all in one piece- now I should be finished with this in a day or so-- would it offend anyone if I post it? okay or have Bob or Neal post it, I think the pattern isn't as important as what the finished product is.
    Let me hear what you think.

    We NEED to see what you have created.
    Unless you hang the final piece on sombodys butt I would like to think no one should be offended.

      By all means Sharon post it, I've used several tattoo patterns myself to make some fine looking scroll work.

          Love to see it
          I made a picture from a tattoo and it turned out super awesome, but I'm afraid to show mine.
          Ask Rob to start a tattoo honors section and them perhaps I'll show it. and no it's not filthy.

            is doing great in therapy. His range of motion is about 3 weeks ahead of where they expected him to be. He has zero strength in his hand or arm. He tried to grate some cheese, and he couldn’t hold the grater. The doctor had to do repair stitching on the muscle and that will take the longest to heal....

            When we started out, it was 45 deg and rain. When we got there it was 44 deg and rain. By the time we left it stopped raining but was 42 deg. and windy. Luckily we are under cover but that doesn’t stop the wind. I sold 4 baskets, Sealife puzzle and a few other things. I moved the coffee grinders...

            I thought I read you use shrink wrapped bags for your puzzles. Where do you get them from?...
