PostSubject: It's decided   Thu Nov 05, 2009 8:49 pm

I wanted to come up with a plan for my tattoos (don't have any yet). I wanted to do something meaningful and spiritual, and of course mutliple tattoos with a common theme. So, I've thought about it and I think I want to do it this way

I want to get my left arm tattooed with my religious beliefs. The highlight of this arm, I have decided, is going to be a simple wooden cross or crucifix, I don't want one of the fancy crosses because jesus and many others died on a simple wooden cross. I want this to the be centerpiece. Aside from that, I would like a tattoo of a bible, possible a larger one opened to one of my favorite bible passages. I know a lot of your aren't christians or very christian, but I would like some input and reccomendations for this arm. I want it to be something really cool and something that mixes together. Just so you know, I'm planning on getting sleaves on both arms

On my right arm, I want to have a mural of music. The centerpiece of this arm is going to be a portrait of Jim Morrison. Haven't decided which picture I want replicated, but it's for sure going to be Jim Morrison. Aside from that, I would like to get Boston's "guitar spaceship" design somewhere, as well as a smaller portrait of Syd Barrett. I would also like some input for my music arm, I know I'm going to have some band logos and stuff, but I really want to have some cool stuff that ties everything together

I can hardly understand anything that isn't Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John

Hard call

I like the idea of a simple cross a lot. I'm not a huge fan of the Bible idea but that's up to you. Bible passage sounds cool though, but you'll have to live it!

As for music I like the idea but to me logos and portraits seem a little dramatic. Maybe more like something to symbolize to symbolize the types of music you like and what they represent. Like a warrior's helmet and sword for folk and power metal and then other things for other things. I like the portrait idea more than the logos idea though.

I think the most important thing is to try to do things that you aren't going to find outdated later on in life.

I say don't get them at all: the one thing I regret is getting inked.

I love the helm/sword idea, although it would definitely have to be an AXE lol.

That's actually really cool. I definitely want a Morrison portrait, but maybe cut back on some of the others. Cool symbolism like the Axe/helm is a really good idea. I like that a lot. I was also thinking of maybe doing something inspired by the Melancholie^2 album cover, such as a blacked out figured walking into a blizzard. Only not exactly the same, but I really like that cover a lot

I dunno. I'd kinda like to get some tattoos, but before I do I'm definitely going to make sure it's what I want. The thing is they're basically permanent and if I wanted to cover them up I would have to wear long sleeves

Cool thanks for the info. Don't know how long it will be before I start getting them, probably a little while, but I want to do something I really love

If you want you could get real looking tattoos that just last like a week or something and see how you like them. It's a lot to think about.

Personally I don't see myself ever getting tattoos, not just because I'm shy but also because some of the things I have to express might be inappropriate.

I have the Metallica ninja star on my right arm, and I so wish I could get rid of it.

I can live with the other two.

Play it safe...get a tattoo of a band that is long broken up.

Then watch in horror as they join back together and release pop stuff that catches on with lots of people but ends up sucking.

There will definitely be pics, but it'll likely be awhile. For one, my mom would freak so I want to wait until at least the summer when I move out. Also, I'm gonna need a job because it's going to get expensive. So at the earliest I'll start getting them next summer. And of course, it'll be an ongoing project. Not going to get them all at once

Hahahahaha great point. I know the first band is going to be The Doors and Jim Morrison. I'm gonna want a sweet quote or two.

Axe when I think of you I think of a viking warrior surrounded by mountains fighting demons and climbing up to escape whilst being haunted by frightening and sorrowing ghosts. Strength in hope and determination, despite being somewhat haunted.

tattoos are just a matter of personal preference. if you think and know what you want do be sure that you won't grow tired of it. for instance i was searching for the real deal sine i was 14, and the only thing stopping me now is the lack of cash. have an artist, and a good one to be more precise, have what i want and the placement figured out, only don't have the cash. yet.
but do check the shops out first. i have a friends who's tattoo (yes he is one of those cool guys that have the basic tribal dragon on their bicep facepalm ) was done by some chick in the back of her van. and then he actually asks why his arm hurts and swells every summer. so check for a legit shop. trust me it's better to pay 20 to 50 extra bucks to some tattoo covered old biker, than have some big boobed chick screw you up for good
