I don't think I'm sure what your asking? Can you elaborate and give us an example? However, you ask 'how do you fit it on paper"? which hints to me that everything you draw you draw to the size the client has requested.. I for one don't do this I will draw it smaller and then resize it on the computer.. This saves you time, plus you know for sure the design is going to be tattooable..

Oh, and the other thing I try to always do in these types of contests: When I enter a design that is obviously not the 10" x 10" square they were asking for, but is drawn in a long narrow strip is to explain to the CH why the drawing is put together that way.
(My response is not in reference to any specific design, but rather to a lot of design request that fit the description)

At the armpit, halfway between the pit and the elbow and at the elbow. then from the bend of the elbow to the top of the shoulder, also the bend of the elbow to the pit. This is so you know how far to extend the design above the pit. Do the same for the forarm if they want a full sleeve.
It will never be perfect doing it over the internet. There is nothing better then doing it with your client in person. but this will atleast give you a template to start with. Also where the design meets or is cut, dont put any key details, because if the design doesn't wrap properly and you've cut a womans face in half and there is a blank gap now. The design stencil will need to be redrawn and cut in a different spot.
I rarely do wraps over the internet for these issues.
