*clears throat* ahem
So the au is most likely destiel based with some hot sex and angst thrown in, because I cannot function otherwise.
Cas’ tattoos are mostly of tribal origin with some mayan figures thrown in there. He likes ancient tattoos and only inks in black cause that’s just how he rolls. He’s a professor of religious studies but shies away religious symbols aside from the enochian script. Cas knows exactly what he wants and has everything mapped out on his body, except for his initials with Dean’s in enochian on his right bicep that he got when they started living together, it was a spur of the moment thing and the only sentimental one he has on his body (The gorgeous design belongs to dirtyovercoats). He has a thing for his tattoo artists and had a bad break up with his old one (It’s meg in my head but you can choose whomever you like) so he finds Dean and gets dirty with him even though Dean doesn’t do his customers normally, his shop’s policy, but makes an exception for Cas. They go in secret (because I have an affair kink which mostly likely is due to me having had secret affairs in the past, but I won’t dwell on that) until they fall in love and yada yada yada.
Dean’s are eclectic because he just gets tattoos of his favorite things, he likes bold colors and sentimental shit that he gets with those closest to him. His first tattoo is the anti-possession symbol which he secretly got with Sam when they were teens. Until he got in the tattooing business he didn’t get anything else. He co-owns a tattoo shop with Benny and Charlie works there too. He got the Star Trek symbol with her. He has a sword because he’s Michael’s sword, a portrait of Mary with a “Hey Jude” banner, Led Zeppelin tattoos everywhere (we can see one on his arm and a bigger Zep angel on his back). You can see the bits of it but a flaming forest tattoo rests on his back which he shares with Benny to symbolize Purgatory. Then he has roses, skulls and pretty girls too, on his legs, because he’s an all American boy or something of the sort. He hated Cas when he first met him, thought he was too snobby and controlling until he saw him shirtless. They had sex in the tattoo shop after hours when Benny and Charlie were away, and thus started their affair. Then he got to know him and yada yada yada.
Sam, as mentioned previously got his first tattoo with Dean when they were teens and wasn’t all that interested in tatttoos until Dean became a tattooist. Now he only trusts Dean and his style. He likes geometric shapes, organic imagery and symmetrical stuff. He’s studying law and wants to be a lawyer so his tattoos aren’t visible under a suit. That tree on his stomach goes down until his pelvis where there are roots visible. He meets Ruby after he breaks up with Jess when she goes to live in the other side of the country or something. Ruby gets him hooked on drugs and likes to lick his trunk if you know what I mean. Dean too busy with work doesn’t notice until Cas points it out (which is how Dean and Cas bond). He moves out of campus and moves in with Dean when he’s clean and gets the symmetrical geometric stuff on his body to remind him about order and balance and shit.
And I think that’s all. That was a lot of words and thought that went into three little sketches but I really had fun constricting this word and I really wish I could write so I can turn this into a proper novel length fic but I’ll leave that to the professionals.
Thank you so much for asking me this question!

Hi! Thank you!
I have in fact made a tutorial a while ago. I do livestreams from time to time though. No one comes but I still do them!
