I like the depthful thought behind it. But if I were to see it in real life the first thing that would come to mind is Music, so if you don't want to get the idea you're trying to project, to be confused, I suggest something else. But that's just my personal opinion which will of course vary from person to person.
This also reminded me of my favorite song, so +1 I like the idea.
Tattoo means being poor all your life. Why would you place something on you that will turn off 50% of all people and the only people who will deal with you are low class.
A man can never take you to a Ball or Black Tie event because you have trash stamped on your back. People will think he brought a hooker to the function with him.
Lets say you are at South Beach one of the USA's hottest international beaches on the planet and you meet a wealthy German or Itilan, he screws you and that will be it. He can never take you to Europe or to any nice place. You made a choice to say "cheap". Just look around South Beach only back woods people sport ink.
It would be funny right now but today's jokes will be old and stale , 5 years later and tattoos are for life. Your boyfriend will be bored by your tattoo quicker than by your naked back. How will your children and grandchildren think about mom, their granny? Will they even know what a VCR ever was?
Think about getting the same in Henna, using some self made template?
I love it girl! It's great that the tattoo would have a deeper meaning. Just be absolutely sure that you want it before you go out and get it. Do what makes you happy it doesn't matter what other people think. :)
