Didn't really know where to post this but has anybody got any greek mythology tattoos and I'm looking for ideas! I want a custom sleeve that depicts the battle of the titans but don't know how to go about it! Ha I already have one but want something that means something to me as I grew up in Greece and love ancient greek history

Get your name tattooed in Greek characters? Or that of your favourite mythological character?

I wanted to get something spartan based on my ribs seeing as how closely their historical description matches my personality

Yeah I've done some research! I want Zeus at the top of my arm, and then the battle against cronos running all the way Down my arm to my wrist!

I know what I want and I am waiting for my tattoo artist to draw some stuff up for me! I know greek mythology tattoos are different and there isn't many pictures to look at...

I was searching for some Greek tattoos myself, yet came to this topic. I love the Greek mythology and already have a Greek mythology related tattoo on myself (a Zeus tattoo). But I have a couple other ideas for you. If you need more help.

1. The first thing that's in my mind related to greek mythology is the Zeus tattoo. You can also have a peacock/lion tattoo along with your Zeus tattoo. The Zeus symbols were the peacock and the lion. But the lion is better for men, yet the peacock for women. Here is a cool list of Greek Gods on Wikipedia, so if you ever want to tattoo one of them, you need to know their names first - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ogical_figures. Here are some Zeus tattoo pictures for you to choose (if you find any you like)

2. you can also have a caduceus tattoo. Do you know that the caduceus is a Greek symbol? It's meanings are: wisdom, magic, protection and even trasnformation.

3. or a Medusa tattoo. She was also related with the Greek mythology.

4. or a Poseidon tattoo.

Hope this helps a bit. (I really love that emoticon).

Maybe he treats other people like Helots, only eats in a canteen with other men, and has a young boyfriend.

On point - how about a big tattoo of Adonis having his testicles ripped off by a giant boar?

Found this cool piece.

Just collect your favourite artistic examples from the battle of the Titans, then find an artist that can replicate those designs. Sounds like it will be very detailed though so be sure to find an exceptional artist at realism ( if that's your preferred style ).

Hope you have got plenty of money put by for this one, it's not going to be cheap.

I'm sure there's a Chimera tattoo you can get that would look absolutely boss. For real.
