    Beyond that, just think if what part of Steampunk is most personal. Gears? Tesla? Safari? I'd also spend some time Google-ing away, or searching Deviant Art for themes. If you where really brave, you'd look up some of that rough Victorian style tattooing and have an artist help you draw something up.

    I've been meaning to find a design that could tie a few geeky individual tattoos I have together. The steampunky gear design could actually work very well for this.

    @dot_xom I'm quite fond of the compass designs. They are pretty damned sexy.

    I think I'm going to draw a compass tomorrow. Those were inspiring!

    They are, but there's too much detail in them for me. I'm looking for something to serve as a background to a few tats and I can't have it overpowering my current ones. The gears are perfect for that.

    That said, if I were to get one of the compass ones, it'd be the first one. Sex-ay!

    Atlus Online has a Steampunk-flavoured online MMORPG just about to open for its next stage of Beta testing, called NeoSteam. Looks intriguing.

    It opens for login 9:30am PST Thursday May 21

    I'm toying with the idea of posting a Whitechapel Blog on how to make a steampunk themed leather satchel/backpack. Thought I'd test the waters first though. Would anyone be interested in looking at something like that?

    @dot_xom The gear one is fabulous. I wish I remembered who had done the art. Its shadow and composition are killer.

    My friend designs and makes Steampunk jewellry for men and women including watches and other accessories if you're interested. Search for Enlyl on Etsy (site blocked at work so can't post the URL or any of her pictures I'm afraid!) I gave my father some of her antique Steampunk cufflinks for Father's Day last year. They're not so expensive either! I like the key earrings too - they seem so oldy worldy, like they're from a long forgotten time with a story to them.

    @Maladicta - I would absolutely love to see that

    which reminds me I need to take a look at the blogs, I've been ignoring them for far too long

    Oh, definitely. I LOVE that, because of the usage of different tones, it doesn't look crowded.

    I don't know why but I haven't checked out this thread in ages...

    @ sheltie,
    where would you be looking to put the shield and what size would it be? I'm having a very sketchy day (in a good way) and have a couple of ideas I might throw at you later? I'm guessing shoulder blade, but how much pain/detail/cost you're after is another matter entirely...

    A Giant Awakes in Nantes

    Nantes, the home town of Jules Verne, is situated in western France. Here, near the river Loire a giant deep-sea diver sleeps gently, waiting for his task to begin. Sadness marks his face even as he sleeps. He has been searching the world over for his missing niece and although he may not know it, the end of his search is coming. The diver or scaphandrier as he is known in French will be paraded through the streets of this historic city at the beginning of the Estuary 2009 arts festival. The biannual festival gives the French mechanical marionette street theater company Royale de Luxe the opportunity to unveil their latest creation.

    @LBA: That's by Mexican artist Hector Zamora. I was at the Venice Biennale last week and saw a few airship installations. Sadly, I didn't make it to the Mexico pavilion to see more of his work.
