I've always wanted a tattoo. However, I've always thought I shouldn't get one until I was absolutely sure I wanted just that. I've never had good ideas for designs until now.
Actually, I thought out the whole idea, based on some thing important to me.
Basically - a rose, a dragon and the number 19.
However, if I wanted a medium sized tattoo (about the size of a grown up man's hand), where would it be best to put it? 'Cause I really don't mind.
If I wanted two different letters tattooed (G and U, first letters of the names of my brother and best friend) anyone got any ideas on where to tattoo them? I would like to tattoo my brother's letter on the left side of my chest (on my heart) and my best friends letter on a totally different part of my upper body, but not sure where.
Always, as usual, make sure it's something you want. I usually tell people make sure it means something to you and avoid letters. And be ready for the pain! The outlines are easy, but if it involves shading it really hurts. I got a tribal scorpion on my shoulder, the love of my life is a scorpio and if anything happens between us its only a picture. The tattoo you're talking about would look cool on your upper arm or back.
roses and dragons are waay too over done when it comes to tattoos. I'm a believer that tattoos should be something different and a little more original that that. As for the initials of your brother isn't there something more meaningful you can tattoo instead, something that represents your brother/best friend?
What could a dragon and rose personally mean to you? The You should really go on the opposite side of your chest that the G is going on. I'm planning to get a small-medium sized tattoo on the upper middle of my back, but for a guy's tattoo I'd definitely recommend it on either shoulder blade, an arm (if you have nice arms) or the back of your calf.
I think if you're asking this question in the first place you shouldn't get it done. Only get if you know that's what you want exactly, have no doubts and do not need feedback because it is what YOU want, not other people. Any tattoo I've had done I haven't asked a single person if I thought it was a good idea because I already knew that's exactly what I wanted. I'm an artist so all my tats are my design only.
As long as it has a meaning you value, its good enough or something that won't change. On that note, never get a band tattooed on you, or any persons name until they are dead and can't change anymore XD. It has to be a constant, not a variable, type object/idea/thought.
I've got 5, already planning my next 2. Mine are religiously/tribal themes of the norse Pantheon (pagan german gods) and the one on my back is-in summary- my ancestry and some pagan symbols.
