So I'm working on some designs for my new tattoo, I want something based around music as I always have some playing either in my head or whatever. Guitar has become a massive passion of mine so I'm thinking of basing my tattoo around some of the songs I love and learnt to play.

Thing is I learn from tabs but want the tattoo in classical notation. Is this even possible?

By the way the songs I'm thinking of doing are...
Bush - Glycerin (First song I taught myself to play, not much of an achievement but the one that started it all)
Foos - Everlong (A song I've always loved)

Thanks people,

Oh yeah, it'd be like either the intros or the choruses or something... not like a whole long song lol. I was thinking of having it wrapped around my arms.

That sounds pretty cool actually, Everlong, i love that song too.

Thanks, I'm planning to get it done in May, maybe just one song for now on one arm and then a bit later do the other arm/song. Maybe try and link them together with some fades so it looks like the music goes into me.

I think it's a bad idea...
What if one day you will stop liking this very song?
It's also pretty much pointless, you want the notes around your arm, but you don't even know them.
#7
The songs I picked I like, but Glycerin has a special meaning to me.
As for the notes thing, it'd look a heck of a lot better than tab wrapped around my arm. Plus that way I know what it means but not many others do.

Finally, it is a damn site better than a stupid band logo tattoo.

But it's not better than no tattoo at all.

Too late for that lol, already have one I designed. The notes won't look exactly the same either, they'll be in the same place and have the same look they'll just have my twist on things to make it look unique. I don't want it looking like I raided a music tutors suitcase and tattooed random notes on myself.

What with the Grandslam victory that's now a bit... cliche this year, also I moved to Wales when I was 9, so I don't think I'm Welsh enough to warrant it.
