    Hey, wondering if anyone knows of a site or location that is good for designing a large patch to go on the back of a Gi?

    Im looking to design something for my girlfriend to put on her Gi. Any thoughts would be helpful.

    Thanks.

    Did you have something in particular in mind? A nickname or something to work off of?

    Hey im looking to design a patch for my girlfriend. Her first grappling coach nicknamed her the "Parada Piranha" because she's all prissy and dresses in fancy clothes, expensive bags and whatnot but ended up being a tear on the mat.

    So im thinking of designing a patch that is half a parada bag and half paranha head. Kinda like the back of the paranha (its tail) turns into a parada bag.

    Of course it can be more cartoonish if you want, maybe more like the Garlson Gracie bulldog or whatever you think.

    Just the front half of a cool Piranha head that turns into a Parada bag where the tail should have be.

    What an asshole. Unless he's not from Brazil. Piranha is a slang for a sexually promiscuous woman, or a prostitute in portuguese, and it's always used in a negative way. Ex: "A irm

    Yeah. If it were anything else, it could be ok, but as the name of the sport says, you'll probably deal with a huge brazilian community during your BJJ time, so it might not be a good idea at all.

    I can't think of a single cool way to do that!! My attempt ended up looking more like "Prade" instead of "Prada", but I think it turned out ok, kind of ferocious yet feminine.

    if she has a thick skin and knows what it means ahead of time, I think it can kick ass.
