I'm a local islander from St Helena in the South Atlantic. I'm trying to start a small T-Shirt printing business on the island. The island just recently opened it's first airport and we're trying to build a tourist industry. In typical theme with all Governments, ours is outsourcing all elements of tourism to large overseas companies. The biggest hotel on the island is owned by the government and was built using our tax money.
So I'm trying to get "my foot in the door" while they're not looking. I want my designs to look like killer tattoo designs, which will really appeal to the locals and tourists alike. I will be looking for future work after this. This is simply a first design to kickstart my business.
I was hoping for a classic "message in a bottle" tattoo design with the words "from St Helena with love" on the paper inside. Framed with a few hibiscus flowers, which grow wild here. For colours, I'm picturing the bold and classic Ed Hardy type shades.
Thank you so much for your time,
