So I’ve decided once again to get a tattoo. I’ve resolved to get one before, but just never followed through. I’m currently an empty canvas, so I’m looking for good ideas on my first one.
I’ve been thinking about a small blazing sun like this one (but just a single color, nothing fancy) or a simple ankh and having it put on the left pec, just left of the sternum (where you place your hand over your heart when saying the Pledge of Allegiance).
My other thought was a colorful orange/red/green/blue/whatever chinese dragon curled up around itself in a circle about 3-4 inches and on my left shoulder blade on my back. Or maybe a colored Marvin the Martian head and helmet, only smaller than the dragon.
FTR, my heritage is Norse, German, and a bit of American Indian. I like computers, fantasy/sci-fi books, dragons are my favorite mythological creatures, and I enjoy abstract computer art. My favorite artist is Dali, I love cats, and enjoy unspoiled nature. (No, that’s not a personals ad, just giving some background info for ideas.)
I’d also entertain an “out there” tattoo idea. I almost got a barcode tattoo on my shoulder, but the guy said he couldn’t make it good enough to be read by a scan gun, so I dropped the idea. Or maybe a colored fractal? A melting clock? A fingerprint (I also like CSI)?
Anybody seen or think of any nifty smallish tattoos that I might like? Any interesting places to put them?
