Ok so i have wanted to get a tattoo for ever. I have always wanted to get one that is SP related since they mean so much in my life, but i didnt want it to be obvious to everyone that is was SP. So today i came up with this design and im liking it alot. I want to put it on my back between my shoulders, and i think i want to keep it about the same size it is in the picture. I dont want it to be very big. Any sugguestions or imput would be nice. Im open for anything i really want it to turn out perfect since i have to live with it forever.

stick with either 1 or 2. I prefer the black ink. The third one's lettering is going to be a pain in the ass and it looks mushy. It may just be the text, but it's hard to read.

nice design!

What does that star have to do with the SP? Was it in the Melloncollie artwork or something? It seems awfully subtle. You picked a lyric from a great song though.

No.1 will definetly show up better on your skin. If i were picking one thats what id go for. The third seems a bit clumbsy with the thick letters.

you didn't say " R0ck 0n!!1"

so this thread is invalidated.

I belive it is an image in the artwork, or there is one very similar. That star is actually a nautical star, which i have always loved. But i figgure with the combination of that and the lyrics which mean a whole lot to me, make for a good tattoo..

tatoos are idiotic. wait one year, if you still want it, go ahead and ruin yourself.

I could never get a tattoo simply for the reason cuz its going to be so gross by the time Iím 50. Or even picture the nursing home years. **shudders** But they are sexy in general.

That being said, Iím not so sure the words would even show up on a tattoo and eventually it would just turn into a big mushy star w/ a hallo around it.

the thing about sp lyrics- even though they sound great and mean a lot, out of context, they just seem kinda corny. you might regret it in a few years. i'd go for ROck On...:p

I'd go with "You will always be my whore" accompanied by a drawing of b0lly in his cape and also a prostitute. She might look like D'arcy.

You should get "Agreed." in small letters on your chest, and then on your back put "ROCK ON..."in large letters.

I'm not really comfortable with you also having grey stars and then posting in consecutive posts with me. It's just weird.

BTW, the best SP tattoo i have seen are the two little dudes from the friends + enemies artwork. Now that was cool because it was very Pumpkins but you'd have to be a Pumpkins fan to know it.

The text is pretty bad in my opinion. Stick with just a symbol.

I really wanted to get that for the longest time, but after awhile i decided against it. I think im going to go with this design, and maybe down the road get the MII guys..

yeah it'll look cool for abit but how long is the text going to stay as opposed to it just turning into a big mushy line?

I don't.

There is too much text on that tatoo. It will look bad.

Then again, I associate that song with the Bradley Center show in 96 where the band played it during the second encore, as Billy stated to appease all of the MTV fans. Needless to say, half the venue emptied out, and the band came back out to end with Bodies and Silverfuck.

Regardless.....I would just go with a symbol.

My idea or interest in the particular tattoo hasn't waned since then, and I don't expect it to anytime soon. One day, I will actually get it, but I always manage to find something else to spend my money on.

i agree with the people that say there's too much text. it's going to fade and blur and look like shit in a couple years. Either just do the bottom lines (one on top, one on the bottom) or make it MUCH bigger then the picture.

Canned Kitty
07-22-2003, 12:10 PM
yeah, and pick some words that don't look shit if you don't know the context.

if i was just some random dude reading that, i'd be like "shya, your life's not extraordinary, and you haven't won it, you stupid idiot loser!"
pick something like "love: it's who you know" or "roxor on!" instead :D

man, that'd be awezome!

I like number one the best....3 would probably look really bad/blurry. as for the problem with people not knowing where the text comes from...I dont' know, if you know what it means, and it's important to you, I don't think other people's opinions of it would matter that much to you. But maybe that's just me.

Would the area between your shoulders get that bad? Maybe when you're 80 I guess yeah. But maybe there's something to be said for old guys with band tatoos :warp:
