I've been kind of considering getting one. Possibly of the Symbol of Torment from Planescape: Torment.

Sample that I think looks like how I would want it although I probably wouldn't get it on my arm:
Image

Alternatively, something from Majora's Mask.
But I don't know. The whole "permanent" and "lowering my employment opportunities" and "significant amount of pain" things are holding me back a bit.

It's definitely my largest concern of the three, with the pain one being second (I have a fairly low pain threshold, but eh, I'd get over it) and the employment one being a distant third (I could get it somewhere where it's not that big of a deal, and employers are slowly shifting in how they view things like that, and I also in general tend to prefer employment where I'm not working with the general public anyway, at which point it becomes irrelevant.)

I'm not too concerned about permanence or the employment thing. This is the first tat that I've gotten that can't be covered by a short sleeve shirt. It can, however, be covered by pants. I plan to one day have a job that requires pants, not shorts, so I should be okay.

Now I just need to figure out what else to get. I like symmetry, so I'm thinking one on my right leg, and one in the middle of my back, and I'll call it quits. The back one would be right below my Triforce, so it'll probably be Link, either Toon-style or from Majora's Mask.

Maybe this pic, but with some tweaks (a different mask, different sword...)
Image

But for the other leg, I don't know what to go with. I'm thinking maybe my Megaman/Protoman pic from earlier in the thread, or possibly something from Secret of Mana. I figure it'll be a couple more years before I decide to get another, so I've got time to make a choice.

My girlfriend has been talking about finally getting a tattoo for herself and ti got me thinking about mine. I'm still not sure if I want one but for the longest time I knew if I did it'd be Tanooki Mario on upper arm or shoulder blade. Now, I'm not so sure. Been thinking of getting either the symbol of Palutena's Army:
Image

Or a weapon symbol (biggest pic I could find):
Image
Either the blade or the palm symbol.

Figured I'd see if anyone had some thoughts or opinions to share.

i want a tattoo so bad... but its gonna hurt and i am going to cry :(

I have been given advice that if i want one, get a really small one first so you know what its like. Therefore I was thinking an E-tank somewhere.

If that's meaningful to you, go for it. To me, having not played Kid Icarus, it looks like the shadow of a big squid, yelling really loud.

Edit: as for that grid of things, I can't tell what I'm looking for or at.

Anyways, as your friend and occasional video game rival, I think Tanooki Mario is still great, but you should consider getting the Smash Bros logo in the exact same place that I have it. Then we can play the next Smash Bros. with our shirts off, and it will be awesome. :\m/:

Something something looks like a penis... Now that that's out of the way... I concur with Stank. I honestly didn't think Kid Icarus at all, but it doesn't matter what I think, it's gotta have meaning to you.

Like I'd totally get the north star constellation tattooed to my torso, very few would get the reference but I would feel like a badass haha (this is an example... as much as I love FotNS I wouldn't tattoo that to my body not that huge anyway"

Ok I was able to blow it up without sacrificing the resolution too much.
Image
I'd be looking at, in A) row, the first or fifth symbol.

The blade and palm are my two favorite weapon classes so that'd mean something. Plus they're fairly simple and don't need color so the amount of work would theoretically be less. Ditto for Palutena's Army's symbol. Plus, you know, they're the good guys so their symbol is meaningful too.

Although the Underworld Army symbol would look look pretty badass...
Image


Funny how I'm agonizing over what to get tattooed when I'm not even sure I WANT a tattoo. :lol:

EDIT - Dammit Stank, now I'm thinking the Smash Bros. logo too haha

Been sorta considering this, or possibly a simpler version (I don't really know how tattoos work)

Image


Without the whole shadow thing beneath it, obviously.

The line work, from what I've been told, is probably too detailed, so I should use the simpler version of this that's in the game's logo, maybe?

I definitely think simpler is the way to go. Not only will it be less expensive but also easier to come across on skin.

That thing looks cool though.

it depends how good the person doing it is.

however

it does matter for aging.

i've had neat ideas for tattoos, but personally, i don't think i could justify it. what i express and use as a part of my personality is constantly shifting. though maybe. . . maybe. . . mixing in an homage to troika in with the bullfrog logo. . . that might be appropriate. but i have a feeling i'd be like "oh neat. i got a tattoo. . . i don't like it."

The only tattoo I've considered was getting HATE across the fingers on my right hand and MORE with HATE under it across the fingers on my left

I use to have what was basically a sleeve figured out years ago. It had all the heroes on one shoulder and all my favorite villains on the other one. If you want your favorite characters that might be a way to do it.

no offence, but getting a trademarked character tattoo is dumb. not as getting dumb as a star of david and a barcode though. dumber than getting advertising for an internet casino on your forehead certainly. :coookieesssss:

I'd rather own the intellectual property that is my skin.

S1eepy: don't design your own tattoo it has to match your body, that's what you you're paying for. i finally found a good cheap local artist, i've got 2 tattoos planned. i've just got fairly open directions to give him. A quill (my last name is Quills as of 3 years ago) and later a stylised rabbit.

I do think I want to get a tattoo eventually, but I don't know of what.

....I wonder if :coookieesssss: would translate well....

do it

small pixel art would look good if you put perspective on it and made the pixels chunky tiles with shading
