Im being dead serious on this one Pit. I decided a long time ago i want a tattoo in memory of my uncle who passed away. He played guitar all his life and got me started on playing. I decided imma get a pic of his last guitar he had, and get that tattooed on me with his name as the fret inlays, and his name, RIP, and year he passed away on the body of it. [its an acoustic]
Im confused of where to put it at though. i was thinking the top of my arm, but then again, im kinda not muscular. [im 5'5 and a half and 119 pounds.] so i was thinking maybe my leg? idk, give me ideas guys. my 17th birthday is jan. 9th and ill be getting one then.

why don't you just get a replica guitar with his name as fret inlays? it wouldn't cost much more than a good tattoo and it would be more useful.

I admire your dedication towards your uncle, I'm sure he would have been a great man.

You probably heard this and hate hearing it, but Im going to say just dont get it at all until you're older. sure its a memorial for your uncle but you're not even 17 yet, thats just bad news all over.

I'm not trying to be a dick but there are 2 other threads about tattoos going right now. I love talking about tattoos and I'll be glad to give ya my opinion. If you tell me how big you want the whole thing to be I'll be able to help out more.

probably shoulder blade. my girlfriends older brother has a tattoo on his right shoulder blade for their dad that passed away a year ago or so. it's like a cross with a rope on one side and boots at the bottom. it's really sweet, that fits their dad perfectly from what i hear. i can see yours being about like that
...why?

Thats a good spot for a larger tattoo, but I would get it on the outside of the arm. That way when your arm is at your side its fully visible.

If you're not surprised, then how are you disappointed?

Back is one of the most painful places you can get a tattoo...

TS, don't do it judging on how much it'll hurt. If you really want it, you can live with the pain for an hour if it'll last the rest of your life. I personally don't think it's a great design for any specific place, seeing as the shape of an acoustic won't follow the line of any specific body part better than another. I'd say go for somewhere on your arm, calf or back. If you were feeling really brave it would maybe work well as a rib piece, but don't get your first tattoo there, it'll hurt like an absolute cunt.

And yes, this should be in the body mod thread.

Think about it. the thinner the skin, the less fat covering the area, the closer to the bone, the more painful the tattoo will likely be.
Compared to you arms, stomach, legs etc, the skin on the back is fairly thin.

Well it turns out I'm a cute little princess with a real tattoo accessory. But that's yesterdays news.

If you were going to make the tattoo a decent size, you could maybe get it don down the side of your ribs, that might detract from the lettering on the frets though, depending on how you do it, and the ribs hurt.
...Bleep Bloop...

^^ As i was saying, it would probably look amazing on the ribs, providing the writing still worked of course, but it would be seriously painful for a first tat.

I reckon it should either go on the arm as a first tattoo, or be saved for later and done on the ribs (if TS plans on getting more than one tattoo of course).
