    I've been putting a lot of thought into a tattoo for the last 2 years or so. However, I could never seem to find something I wanted. I'm picky... I wanted it to be my idea, my design, my drawing, all me. Yet I see so many awesome things and wonder AWW, WHY COULDNT I THINK OF THAT?

    Well, I thought of something. There's 2 ways I can make it. It's a word. The two options are horizontal and vertical.

    The vertical option would go up my tricep, probably on my right arm.
    The horizontal option would be right below my bicep. For example, if my arms are at my side, you couldn't see the tat. But if I lifted my arms in a muscle-show-offer fashion, then you'd see it.

    The pros and cons are this:

    The horizontal option I believe would look kinda blah sooner. It's a more fatty area, and when I'm 80 it'd look kinda messed up, whereas the back of my arm may be more firm. The upside is, I'd be able to look down and see it as a constant reminder.

    The vertical option for some reason is what I originally wanted. Everybody has tattoos on the side of their arm. Cool, I like that. But I like to be different... so I figured a tricep is a place I don't frequently see tattoos. Plus, since I often wear sleeveless shirts, it's not like it'd be hidden from the world all that often. It'd be there! I just wouldn't be able to personally see it that easily.

    Jayce, I don't think anyone should be giving you advice on this subject. Tats are personal. And only you can and should decide exactly where, what and when.

    I remember when my old friend took me to a tattoo parlor for my 19th birthday and offered to pay. All my friends were full of ideas and advice. I went with the one thing that they all hated, years later I look at it and think "COOL!"

    No one else has to carry that word or picture around with them for the rest of their lives except for you. Good Luck with your choice mate. :tup

    I saw a guy in a porn flick with POISON tattooed onto his dick. That looked pretty cool, do that Jayce.

    I watched a documentary about body modification and there was a guy who had "rock & roll" tattooed onto his penis. He didn't have to have an erection to get the tattoo, as is sometimes believed. He just stretched the skin.

    I'm all for a blue sword vertically, Hilt down and very large.
    Above the sword put the word "follow", Below the sword put "Me".
    I was once in the 30th Infantry regiment.

    I don't know if it's a true story, but I read that there was a guy who got "property of (his gf's name)" tattooed on his dick :eyes
