View Full Version : Need some ideas for this site...

Again I am new to DW, just finished my first page. I want to do another one now. My brother asked me to make him a website for his tattoo shop. I was looking at some of his competition and not so impressed. I wanted to keep it simple but still do something different and fun. My idea was this:

Creating an image with a person who has the title of the site tatood on her. I can do this in Photoshop pretty decently down to the red skin and puffiness. The point being I want it to look like it is real. The rest of the tattoo would be the navigation. Basically the whole front page would appear to be tatood on her and I would create links although I am not sure how to create different links on one image. Does anyone know how to have one image and capture elements of the image and turn them into linked buttons? How would that be set up?

Or I could do the tattoo as the main image, then have a little naviagtion at the bottom which would be the ink wells the tattoo artist uses. I could turn all the equipment that artist uses in to the naviagation buttons. That would be easier to do since I don't know how to do the first option although I would prefer to have one image.

I would appreciate some creative feedback. Thanks!! :)

In order to go with your first idea you would need to create hot spots on the image.

I'm pretty sure DW has an option for this.
