On ne voit bien qu’avec le coeur

Idea

Tattoo of a heart, surrounded by the words:

L’essentiel est invisible pour les yeux

In the middle of the heart, an (allseeing) eye inside some geometric shape.

Implementation

Heart

  • anatomical (human) heart
  • only outlines and some veines
  • outlines must be drawn in a sketchy kind of way
  • if possible – make outlines that look like scars
  • preferably some blood dribbing from the side

Colors
in case of scars: black and red
* otherwise: some polka trash style and/ or brushstrokes

Eye

  • not too many details ➔ preferably something in old-school style
  • mainly black – no colors or just a few to accentuate some features (eyecolor maybe?)
  • eye is inside a circle which seems to be part of the heart – like a cut-out – allso sketchy like drawn

Font

Examples:

precious1
Precious
maestro1
Maestro
beyondwonderland1
Beyond Wonderland

Inspiration

Also Inez Janiak (Facebook | Instagram) has some G R E A T sketchy style tattoos!

Challenge

How will all those different styles (sketchy/ polka trash + old-school + typography) be combined?

As fas as the typography is concerned, I think the first two fonts are a little bit to calligraphic, as for the sketchy-trashy heart they are about to frame. Maybe I will find some other fonts looking a little bit rougher to match with the tattoo.
