Tattoos - what and where?

Post by sandyinblack »

I don't know if this has been a previous topic but looking around during the good weather this summer (yeah I know, its been a pile of pants)
a shitload of people have tattoos these days. And on every part of their body.
There is also a load of song lyrics being tattood onto bodies ie Simon Neil from Biffy Clyro has 'God Only Knows What I’d Be Without You'
by the Beach Boys on his chest to celebrate his love for his wife.
So I got to wondering........

If YOU were to have Stranglers lyrics tattood somewhere on your person....
a/ What lyrics would you choose?
b/ Where would you have them tattood?
c/ Is there sentiment behind the choice?
d/ stand alone or incorporated into a design or other tats?

I'm still thinking......
Punk could be the first step towards Utpoia

It would have to be 'Fly straight...' or 'Allow me to rearrange...' but after much thought, I've always decided against getting a tattoo. Always wanted a big Raven on my back but as I'm not exactly a frequent sunbather, swimmer or streaker for that matter, plus I wouldn't be able to see the brilliant tattoo unless risking neck strain in a mirror, I've so far resisted the urge.

I haven`t had a tattoo done for years. I think ya cant go wrong with the obvious 3?
1, Stranglers logo, (red original)......keep it simple?
2, The silhouetted,(wearing hat) ManInBlack?.....again, black,simple?
3,Rat symbol.....perhaps combined with 1 ? (or a psychedelic rat) ?

Upto you where ya have `em? Remember if ya an office whalla, not a good idea to have them some where,publicly on sight?

Bi-cep,calf,across shoulders, is a safe bet? Ya get to show em off when ya want? NOT all the time?

Or if ya of John Holmes proportions???? Then always a good idea to have...........................................opt for 4 ????

4, The Gospel According To The Men In Black ......along the length of ya old chap ????

If the mood grabbed me again, or if I could get a slightly wierd,take on it I`d plump for Stranglers logo on calf, and a psychedelic rat scuttling towards me ass ?

I'm thinking of having the Rattus Rat in a circle as the basis.

With, probably 'Something Better Change' underneath.

I haven't had a new tattoo for a couple of years. It's overdue.

Or perhaps, "Big Thing Coming".

Just a thought.
