a couple of my friends and i were talking about tattoos and stuff, and lyrics that would make good tattoos if we were going to get a lyric tattoo.

and just great lines in general.


so, pit, if you were going to get a tattoo of song lyrics, what would you get?

i've always thought "roll with the punches" would be a great tattoo.
and even if i eventually didn't like Four Year Strong later in life, it's still a great saying anyways.

and Have Heart is my favorite band of all time, so i also thought one of their lines would be cool.
like: "watch me rise" or "armed with a mind" or something.


end of "lyric tattoos are stupid," etc... posts:

All this "people who get tattoos because it looks cool" stuff is bollocks. Tattoos don't require a deep meaning or whatever to be valid. Hell, no-one gets a "deep" tattoo that they think looks shit. A tattoo marks a point in your life. If you thought a bow on your wrist looked pretty cool at the time, awesome. Good for you. You may not like it at a later date, but it's a mark of the person you used to be. Having cool artwork for the sake of having cool artwork done on you is as valid a reason for a tattoo as any

inb4 "i cum blood"

OT: I really like the lyrics to the Opeth song benighted. not sure what a lot of them mean but i like em. Either that or God of Emptiness by Morbid Angel (I'll take your soul and you'll be like me... in emptiness).

I'd probably go with the Floyd

something like...

"long you live and high you fly"

or

"No one speaks
And no one tries"

I wouldn't get lyrics as a tattoo. I don't like tattoos.

The only tattoo I'd consider would be a small deathbat on my forearm.

Pink Floyd's Time has some brilliant lyrics.
Marshall amplifiers are the truest purveyors of rock and roll known to man.

"And give a man an amplifier and a synthesizer, and he doesn't become whoever, you know. He doesn't become us."

Holy crap, check this out!

I also really like the lyrics from Tool songs, but if I got lyrics tattooed on me, it would be the ones from Stinkfist

If it would have to be lyrics, it would be "Do you folks like coffee?"
But otherwise, I wouldn't ever go for lyrics. Lyrics are NOT the kind of tattoo you really want if it's gonna be text. If you want text for your tattoo, let it be something that means a lot to you, and don't go "but these lyrics explain who I am" or anything like that, because it doesn't, unless the artist specifically thought about You when they wrote the song.

this is wrong.

the way i look at it,
even if you don't like the band/song/whatever 10+ years down the road, there's still a memory behind it.

no, i don't think you should put absolutely no thought into getting inked.

no song, ever, is meant to be interpreted in only one way...

edit-
i also meant to put into my first post: please leave stuff like this out of here.
that's not what i meant this thread to be about...

If the lyrics mean a lot to the person, I don't see why it wouldn't make a good tattoo.

The person should put a lot of thought into it, however. It would suck to get lyrics that they end up hating 10 years later


On topic, I know a couple people actually who have the lyrics "All you need is love" on them. Pretty cool.

^as do i.

i think that's one of the most popular lines for being tattood.
which, kinda makes me hate it...



True, but they (My friends) make it look different in their own way and have it done in their favorite writing style, etc, etc. There is a lot more to the tattoo than simply what it says.


...But yea, it's very common.

I'm not really a fan of lyric tattoos, but if I did get one it would be

I'd go for some Dutch lyrics:

Het is makkelijk om te haten datgeen wat jij niet kent, het is geen kunst te veroordelen datgeen wat jij niet bent

In English it means "it's easy to hate what you don't know, it's easy to condemn what you are not"

"...A symphony of a restless dream right down to your fingertips" DAMN I love those lyrics. Funeral for a Friend - Waterfront Dance Club

"See you as a mountain, a fountain of God, see you as a descant soul in the setting sun"

Those are my favourite lyrics ever.

Lords of death i summon you
Reside within our brains
Cast your spells upon our lives
So that we may be


Free of their god Intelligence won
Go with your instinct to live as you want
No longer begging for mercy from thieves
They cant come near you
Through them you can see
Keep to the outside the teachings of christ
Denounce the father
Undo his disguise
Die


Dies Irae Dies Illa

Can't really think of lyrics with such a great meaning behind it.
I like most biblical sayings although I am not a member of the christian church or a devout believer.

"May he who is without sin cast the first stone" is something that appeals to me.

Anything on Sound Awake, but perhaps most notably:

Set fire to the hive as you flee,
It's fiction, a face-less illusion,
You've been had again.

I like tats, but i don't like the idea of lyrics. Mainly because i like lyrics more for the melody than the phrases. That and i once had the idea for a lyric tattoo and fell out with it by the time i came to get it.

It was gonna be "Pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere" with a comet somewhere around it.

"If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all...."

also "I drive a Rolls Royce, 'cos it's good for my voice"

I think if I got one tattoo of that nature I'd end up getting a lot... and I don't really see the point of tattoos, so I'm not going to get one
