    Im looking to get a tattoo soon, and I want a quote..

    Iv chose either -

    'you don’t know what you live for, until you know what you'd die for'


    Or -

    'She flies with her own wings'

    Both would be in a script style writing..

    Any ideas where abouts on my body to get them?

    It's really not a good look - why bother with a quote why don't you just get your name or 'mum'...

    ive been told its very very painful...but the inside of your upper arm (bicep thingy)...that way only you will see it unless its summer and your wear a t shirt or vest.

    my friends dad got a tat. there of his daughters names...it look pretty good

    For the first one, perhaps on your back, below the neck between the shoulder blades. [Sorry if there's an actual name for that location lol]

    For the second, the same place or [as it's shorter] on either side of your chest.

    I also like the upper arm idea.

    i think you should do it on the back of your wrist OR just below the neck OR on your biceps... just NOT your lower back formerly known as the "tramp stamp"... but hey take into consideration jobs you may want to do in the future... because some jobs don't look to kindly to visible tattoos

    isn't it meant to be, 'she flies on her own wings' = Alis Volat Propiis. Why do you want this if you are male?

    Hmm not sure that's what the Latin really translates to but then who am I to interpret it.

    Also, very wary about getting a tattoo about your girlfriend even if it isn't her name. Any future girlfriends may not feel happy about it, and you don't know that you will be together forever.

    The first one you suggested seems to have a tense problem, and I would hate to have a quote with apostrophes in it. Apostrophes in something formally written down are pretty sloppy. Also for it to be a size of writing you can read and that will not blur over time, its going to take up a fairly large space.

    But what the hell. Do what you want. It's your body, and I have no right to tell you what or what not to put on it.
