Default Tattoo design

Hello, I was searching some sketches and designs to get as new tattoo. I liked this one: https://imgur.com/a/5X9fw
But do you guys think this will look good as tattoo?
Your own opinion on the design itself?
And also I'm concerned that when lets say I walk it will look deformed because of forearm twisting.

I think a good artist would draw a better, darker version based on that TBH.

100% agree. It's good reference material for sure.

Any ideas coming at your mind guys, what can I change to make it a bit dark-ish? Just to give ideas to my artist.

I really like this as a reference. What you need to do is

1. Remember that we are not artists, so...

2. Research blackwork artists, find one(s) whose work you love, as in, you look at all of their work and love the style of tattoos they do

3. Contact them with the picture above and explain you want something a bit fuller and darker (chances are if you're contacting them it's because they do fuller darker work anyway so would turn the sketch into exactly what you want anyway).

4. Get the awesome tattoo!

If you tell us where in the world you are we might be able to recommend artists to look at.

I think you can just discuss that with your artist. Kinda hard to give ideas without seeing your half sleeve. Just show your artist the image and tell him what you like about it.

Ps. You're definitely going about this the right way, this forum is full of very helpful people who have given people, myself included, great advice and helped them get great tattoos.

You've not just gone to your nearest shop without doing any research as to the style or quality of the artists there, which so many do and end up with shit tattoos. Follow the advice here and you won't regret it!

Do you have an artist in mind? Someone like Fredao Oliveria would nail that design
