Default Software to design a tattoo.

OK here is what I am looking at doing. Maybe someone already know how or can point me to the right software to do it. I am wanting to design a tattoo with my wife's name in the shape of a dolphin. Here is a example of what I am wanting to do. Maybe someone can tell me some "open source software" that I can use. Thinking maybe a vector based program. Don't know if I can do it in photoshop or gimp or not. Probably something that can stretch fonts???? Maybe?

I bet if you tried you can freehand it.......draw the shape of the dolphin in the example then start drawing the letters of your wifes name in it..try and keep with the scheme of the letters in the example....if you or she did it it, would have more of a personal touch to the tat, rather than have a computer program do it. The coloring & shading can be done by the tattoo artist. waddya think???

Sorry Beav, but when you mentioned tattoos all I could think of was Dudley from Wild Hogs and his Apple tat that he got at the galleria.

Good luck with all that....a fuggin dolphin???

Yea I may try that OJ.

Yall are a bunch of goober smoochers.. I could see you getting a apple there Riv. Difference between me and him is I'm not a virgin. I already have two tatt's The reason I was think of a dolphin is my wife and I. Before kids and before marrage. Our first trip togather was to Dauphin Island AL. So I thought about getting her name in the shape of a dolphin. NOt a gay dalphin type way FuggNutts.

Oh Dauphin, Not Dolphin!

Damn man thats a fine choice, here is a Dauphin you might consider.

Dauphin Louis of France...an excellent choice!

Make a snappy tat for sure, you could put your good ladies name on his sash and all.

I belive the island was named after his family named after Louis XIV's great-grandson and heir, the Dauphin.

Hey Beav, Cj and I drove down to dauphin island this winter, it is a really neat place, lots of destruction from Katrina, but they are rebuilding the entire western side of the island.

We have thought about trying to go there for vaca at some point. Very nice location.

Yea we haven't been back since Katrina hit. We may try going this summer for a weekend maybe. I kinda wanted to see how the ocean research lab was effected. That was always my favorite place to go. We normally use the camping spots there right out from Fort Gains, but we have tried a bed & breakfast there. It was for sale the last time we were there.
