im considering the following
none of those.
Quite a few of my friends have it, I like it. I like the Minor Threat sheep too, although I'm not sure on the The Clash design. Go for the Black flag bars, it's simple yet striking.
the songs meaning i really like, but its not my favourite clash song and im not too sure on the artword. i think i would like something similar to that though.
the out of step one is pretty cool and has some meaning behind it, and the black flag one is just fucking cool
It's not OTT, only one colour and Black Flag are fucking great.
would be of John Alford
'representing' in an early 90s style
possibly the third one as well but im just not sure where and wanted some feedback
The first and third ones are pretty bad, and I've seen the second one on people quite a few times before
I know this doesn't help your decision
but maybe just get your artist to do their own version?
devoid of artistic talent
your tattoist to design it!
jumping over the black flag bars? Fuck that shit, I'M getting that done...
I want another tattoo now!!!
when I try and get to sleep tonight.
i'd get an old rose in sailor tattoo blue
Why not get something better, like a few wasps or bees, or ants, ants would be good, they can lead to places, like dot to dots
sometime around my birthday.
Auxilliary question: How do you tell where's good to get a tattoo? I want somewhere where it'll turn out good/I won't get AIDS...
rather than place on the body :P
i guess you would just have to have a look around, talk to people you know who have tattoos and ask where they reccomend
I will probably do this.
I'm not telling you what I'm getting because you may steal it :P
it's probably going to be a bear, something like this:
But only the outline and without the gay star.
I'm getting my girlfriend to do the final design :)
whats the reasoning behind it?
where abouts do you want to get it?
Somewhere that's not massively visible in everyday life.
Probably shoulder or chest...
i was thinking about the black flag one across my forearm but its too visible really
it'll be for personal rather than aesthetic reasons so I don't really care if no-one else sees it.
I think my upper arms is too skinny to pull off having a tatto on it, the only other place is the inside of my forearm (also quite skinny) or my neck or something.
To sum up - I'm still not quite sure :P
theyre really quite pathetic. im thinking of maybe starting with some on the legs or back. im not sure either!
with permanent marker to see if I like it :)
or maybe the cockrel :)
on your cock.
could be your scrote.
And you'd have to wait til you got a boner until it looked as proud as it does on the badge :D
Just get the ribbon from the old badge, across your shoulder: http://www.heike-h.net/AUDERE_EST_FACERE.jpg
is a lion?
There's so much wrong about that and I fear that the person wearing it might be the member of certain right-wing groups :(
the link was something like footballthugs.com
black flag bars are possibly the most cliched tattoo there is BUT its common for a reason: its a great logo and looks good as a tattoo
i believe one of Ordinary Boys has the minor threat black sheep. its a crap image anyway. you could get another black sheep that looks better as a minor threat reference.
probably worth noting that of those bands, the one that most people move away from as they get older is minor threat. very very teeny
it just looks really good i think.
and i see your point about the minor threat thing, but i think even if i do move away from liking them ill still like the tattoo as it will remind me of being young and stuff.
Don't do it!
i know it's quite popular but it make's such a solid good looking tatt (and they were such a solid good sounding band, and work ethic) that it's still worth getting.
it's hardly celtic bands or "tribal" spikey scribbles is it?
will look good together
and black flag bars are the swallows of band tattoos.
you have to be at least 40% twee to be eligible for that tattoo!
IF YOU HAVE A TATTOO.
only studs get tattoos.
and leave them there for a couple of weeks. Make sure you really, REALLY want them there for the rest of your life.
I have 5 tattoos, most of which were done whimsically, and i regret all but 1 of them.
but im not good at drawing so it looked shite
is the black flag one. Loads of people have it, but it is cool. If i were going for a band tattoo, it'd be something like that :)
The clash one is AWFUL, please don't get it done!
and it's got text on it. I reckon simple, ambigious tattoos are definitely the best type. The blag flag one is exactly that, whereas the clash one is just a bit messy for a tattoo.
makes sense i suppose
i'd never get a tattoo with text on. But actually advice schmadvice, it's your tattoo! if you want it, go for it.
i love it but be prepared for endless "why have you got a barcode on your arm?" questioning.
