How far is Javier Antunez from you? Tattooed Theory is the shop name.

Here's another problem. I don't actually have any pictures of him playing hockey that aren't him at age 6 or 7, do you guys think that an artist would be able to create that without a picture to go off of?

If you're going for a player with his back turned skating away then finding a reference picture off google images shouldn't be a problem. If you're going for a B&G or colour realism piece it would be helpful having a reference image on hand of what you want.

Yeah, his back as he's skating away you could use any image. Find one you like that's pretty big and good quality, so it doesn't pixelate when it's enlarged. It wouldn't be a picture of your friend but it would have his name and number on the back.

Childhood photos would be tricky for the artist to tattoo from but it can be done successfully. If you wanted to have your friend playing hockey when he's older that's going to require some pretty decent artistic/photoshop skills and you'd need to be really careful who you go to. I guess it would be possible but it could also go horribly wrong!

I may have missed it, but where is this piece going and how big do you want it?

I'm thinking of putting this on my shoulder/upper arm area. Almost like a half sleeve but not quite that big. And I think this is the pose I want to go with. Now I just have to think of how to explain it to the artist that I know so she can draw it up just right with his name/number/colors Can I have some advice?-img_1364.jpg

That's cool, I'm sure you'll have no problem explaining what you want

Is it weird that I know who has this tattoo? I think I have a tattoo obsession.

Nope, I think it's a pretty small world if you are really into something
