Cool Clown loach tattoo

I really want a clown loach tattoo...

Since I can't find any, anywhere.. I designed my own. :)

Tell me what you think! (this is just a first attempt)


10 gallon (Aquarius the betta)
30 gallon tall (currently in progress) 4 black skirt tetras.
55 gallon planted: 4 Three Spot Gourami, 4 young Angelfish, 5 young clown loaches. (don't worry, they are getting a larger tank), 1 bristlenose pleco, 3 otto cats, 4 guppies, & 1 corydora.

Jack (the bunny). Sakura, Mouse, Wookie (the guinea pigs).

My Cats: Yoda (hand raised FCK kitten), Patch (one eyed rescued stray), Charlie, Costello, Blue, Mamma, Dixie , Precious, Sadie (all rescued strays)

That looks great. I wish I had your talent (I can't draw a circle properly).

The only thing I'm not sure I'd do is the barbels or maybe tone them down a little. Just my humble opinion here.

Good luck with it.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

That'll make a great tatoo! I love clowns. I agree with Romad, the barbels need to be changed just a tad. I need to walk over to my tank and go check out my clowns. I think it's the black line that is delineating the barbels from the body are what look a little "off". You have GREAT drawing talent!!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

seeing as the first one looked like a tramp stamp... I revised the design a bit.

the filling in the back pattern should be less busy so to speak.it takes our attention away from the loach which is the main feature.

That looks really good..this one is better..however I agree with penang. I'm sure you can have the artist just soften the bold black lines..but it should be what you want..

hi
i actually prefer the first.
great drawings on both though.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I like the first one but only one side.

I've been feeding sunflower hearts and niger seed to our goldfinches.
