So I had posted awhile back that I had decided I wanted a Wonder Woman tattoo. I want it on my right shoulder blade/back area and even know what I want. I have always wanted a leaping/flying wonder Woman who is swinging her magic lasso. Originally I even thought it would be neat to have the lasso extend to wrap around my upper arm, but I’m not doing that anymore. I just don’t have the biceps for it.
To the right is an image almost like what I want actually. This is Wonder Woman from the new “Justice League” cartoons. While I actually really like her, I am more partial to some of the classic wonder woman designs. Therefore I’m throwing some other photos out for all my friends to see and give feedback on.
To the left is another idea of the whole lasso idea, but this uses a much more modern Wonder Woman image. Not as new as the “Justice League” cartoon, but newer than what I grew up with. The colors on the suit in this one I love, but I know they also won’t translate well to a tattoo.
When I think of Wonder Woman I usually think of either Lynda Carter or what I consider the quintessential Wonder Woman, which is the image I remember growing up with. As much as I love Lynda, I am not into the real life looking portrait tattoos myself, so I’d rather not have Lynda on my body. I have a number of scans of what I consider the classic Wonder Woman with her lasso, leaping and doing the whole spin change. Below are two images I really love, and I’m considering having an artist do a merge of these two so to speak. That’s my number one pick right now I think.
Classic Wonder Woman Images
I had considered using the one “Classic” Wonder Woman spinning image below and just going with it, because it’s so perfect the way it is. However it would take up more room than I was originally thinking. I would probably need to position it below my neck between my shoulder blades. I don’t know if I want to go there. The other option is somehow having the artist fit it diagonally onto my shoulder blade as planned. There is also an updated Wonder Woman spinning image, which I cannot make up my mind on. I think that Wonder Woman is a little too manly, especially in the face. Yeah, the more I look at that one, the more I see a drag queen playing Wonder Woman. No thanks!
Classic Wonder Woman Spin, Updated Wonder Woman Spin
Finally I’m throwing out a few final images I picked up here and there, just some different variations of Wonder Woman. On the right is another “Justice League” Wonder Woman. Again, love the outfit, but metalics don’t translate well to tattoo ink. Then there is a flying punch Wonder Woman on the left which seems an updated or later version than what I consider “Classic” Wonder Woman.
Feel free to leave any thoughts on which images you like best. I’m having a hard time deciding, and this is something that I’ll be stuck with! I’m still thinking either a merging of the two “Classic” lasso images from above or the “Classic” spin image, if it can be worked out. Honestly I think I’m more leaning toward the spin after writing this post, as my brother and I used to spin around like Wonder Woman singing the theme song until we were dizzy and fell over. But then again, didn’t we all do that?
