i changed the design a bit again to make the roots more.....rooty. i started shading them but wasnt sure if i liked them shaded. i think it will take away from the tree being the focal point. i can add more nodes to make the roots more fibrous and maybe thicker lines. let me know what you think.

i went by the tree you wanted and made it so the roots go on forever in a cycle. let me know what you think and ill finish it up.

Thanks so much! I really really like your drawing style, which is why I gave the drawing 4 stars. I was thinking though of a different type of tree. I'm in Australia and my fiancee is australian so I was thinking maybe some sort of Aussie native tree. i'll post a link below of what I've been looking at. But if you think it won't look great in a design, the type of tree i want is a more standard archetypal tree. Thicker trunk, straight, with leaves that look "umbrella" shaped. Sorry for the shit description lol

As far as the roots. I think I want the tree to be the centerpiece of the labyrinth, so that it's also the centerpiece of the tat. Maybe forming a square around the tree to outline it and give it it's own "environment" and then it can go from there. And I think I would like it to stay square shaped.

I really like your idea of entangled roots, but in the tat it looks like a dead end you know? if there was a way to keep your idea, but still make it so that if you followed it with your finger you'd never find a dead end. That would be awesome.

Thanks so much. I hope you resubmit, because your drawing style is awesome!!!

liked your idea so i started throwing this together. some roots go into each other to represent entangled lives. i used an acacia tree cause the oldest legend is african and that would have been the kind of tree it sprang from. let me know what u think if u want changes or anything.
