Feel free to use this as inspiration for a tattoo design. I'm not sure what I am doing with this yet. I might develop my own company and use it as the company logo, so if you are serious about using it as a tattoo design, I suggest that it is altered in some way so you don't end up with a company logo as a tattoo. I don't mind however if you want to use it as a base for your own design. All I ask is that if you do use parts of this design, that it is for personal use only.
Absolutely; it was a good design. And thanks. I used to be quite into 3DS Max a while ago. I didn't have extensive knowledge of the program, but I made some models I was proud of. And yes, it is definitely a challenge. Let me know if you post any of your 3D work!
