Born to die! by o-LilSweets-o Born to die! by o-LilSweets-o

Original tattoo design. I used a ball-point pen and a black coloured pencil.

Please DO NOT USE for your tattoo without changes. You can inspire yourself with this drawing, but please change the line if it's for getting tattooed

Using this picture for texture :

I forget to mention I have a picture of my kid that died of SIDS and below it it has "born to die"

I'm sorry, I don't understand , you've got a tattoo of your kid with "born to die" under it?

But I'm afraid the idea is the same: you can inspire yourself (position of mouse, of the owl and its wings etc...) but try to change the lines to get a unique owl, unique mouses etc... But if you go to a good tattoo shop, bring pictures you like (like this and others that you found on internet), and explain that you want something unique for your tattoo around your kid. I don't know where you live, but in france a good tattooist will draw a knew drawing especially for your tattoo (getting inspire of the pictures you brought).

I had the tattoo of my kid on my hand for awhile now.

Just to be clearer, and sorry if i'm really confusing you, but I was thinking of using the "Born To Die" part I saw in your drawing done underneath the portrait I have already on my hand...

Haa! Ok! I'm sorry too. In this case, I allow you to use it because this lettering isn't as important as the owl and mouses in this drawing. Send me a note to show me the result! ;)

I got a question..... You said: "Do not use for your tattoo without changes"

Is this considered enough change? I basically took out the owl and the mice and just left the "born to die" part on.... Can I use that?

Hum, I'm sorry, it's true that it's not clear! The idea is that if somebody get tattooed the owl without "changes", it's possible that other people have the same tattoo. And in my opinion, it's not interesting getting the same tattoo as another person. So, you have to modify the line to turn it special.
For exemple: maybe you don't care about owl but you love so much raven...or maybe you can try to draw a different face for the owl (maybe like this: [link]).

I think I may say "you can inspire yourself with this drawing, but please change the line if it's for getting tattooed".

Hope I'm clearer lol. =)
