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.

Do I want to be Great?

Hell yeah!!!

Great article to remind me how…

Science of People – How to be Great

Here a small summary of all points:

#1 “What you think is possible, is possible.”
#2 Just because someone else hasn’t made it, does not mean, that I will not either!
#3 Top performers believe they are lucky—they believe in the power of possibilities.
#4 “Through modern science, we now know that thought energy can activate or inhibit physical functionality on a cellular level.”
#5 “Expectation assimilation is the fancy science term for how our brain and body match and fulfill our expectations.”
#6 “If you believe something will have a negative effect, it probably will. Eliminating your harmful expectations!”
#7 STOP MAKING EXCUSES!!!
#8 Don’t try to be perfect – instead learn from your mistakes! DO IT!
#9 Dream big and DON’T LET THE POSSIBILITY OF FAILURE STOP YOU!
#10 “Competitors are your friends! The person in front of you is simply showing you what is possible.”
