I'm thinking about getting a tat soon but I want it to mean something, and the only thing I can think of is something that represents being humble.
But Alas!
I don't know of any animals/symbols that would represent humility. I don't like the cliche' Bible verse tatoos but there is one verse that states "he who exalts himself shall be humbled, and he who humbles himself shall be exalted."
so I basically want something that means that more or less but in a different form, something that would make people ask "what does your tat mean/represent?"
Any help is appreciated.

Not trying to criticize your tattoo idea or anything, but when people look at a tattoo like that, they'll most likely say, "Ooh, he's saying that he who exalts himself shall be humbled, and he who humbles himself shall be exalted," not, "Ooh, I have absolutely no idea what this could mean... please explain."
That being said, there is a tattoo/body piercing thread you might want to look into. The people there are probably more knowledgeable about stuff like that

Why is it that some folks quote praise from other members in their sig lines?
Its lame.

that's rather ironic...
declaring oneself humble is quite the opposite of being humble i do believe, correct me if i'm wrong.

It wouldn't be a declaration tatoo, but one that would remind me to stay humble when I look at it.

Get a tattoo that we tell you because we tell you it means something to you becuase you don't know what you actually want.

Nice.

yeah thats a stupid idea to begin with. dont declare yourself humble. dont ask a guitar forum for help either, thats equally stupid. i have plenty of tattoos, but they are all original ideas, be creative.

With your post, the pit has its rightful name - the pit, the most lowest place on earth, after a 100 feet of earth and 200 feet of sh|t .

Get a tat of your face with a huge smile and a little speech bubble that says "I'm ****ing badass"


That is the true essence of humility.


or this:

Quote by Tao Te Ching
The Master views the parts with compassion,
because he understands the whole.
His constant practice is humility.
He doesn't glitter like a jewel
but lets himself be shaped by the Tao,
as rugged and common as stone.
There may be times when it is impossible to prevent injustice, but there should never be a time when we fail to protest it.

if you have to remind yourself to be humble it's obviously not one of your most prominent characteristics.

don't lie to yourself.

Yea, Sublime is a great band. You have an Underoath icon, so I think your opinion doesn't matter.

If you want a tattoo which means something how can someone else tell you what it is?

If you don't know it then it doesn't meant anything to you, fucktard.
