hy all! i want to ask you,what do you think about a non-graphic (text) tattoo? i want to have a tattoo on my left lower arm with a text from the movie "Pi"... ( "9:35, personal note. when i was a little kid, my mother told me not to stare into the sun... so once, when i was six, i did...") what do you think? isn't that look like i have glued a paper with a writing on it on my arm?:D or isn't this text too long? i'm a bit confused,please help me!

I think that's an AWESOME idea for a tattoo. Text tattoos are great. I have one. the thing that you have to remember is that you need to get them fairly large so that they stay looking nice for a long time. Tattoos tend to blur around the edges over time so write it to small and it will be a gray mess in ten - fifteen years. I don't know how big your arm is but written across your forarm might be nice. On your ribs or back as well. If you have a fairly large bicep that would work well actually. Also, make sure you go to a GOOD artist. Just because you're only getting text done does NOT mean that you can skimp on the artist. See some one reputable. Good luck! It's going to turn out great!

I have always loved tattoos. And I think that Text Tattoos are awesome. I just love text tattoos. I also have text tattoo and I totally love it. I think even without the styles and colour, text tattoos looks really awesome. If you are getting a text tattoo little longer then I think it's kind of good to have them in smaller size or you can get a short tattoo, if you want your text to be big in size.

Mine isn't completely text... it's two rabbits and the symbol for Pisces with the words "Through our bleeding we are one," that a friend translated for me into Irish Gaelic. trí ár fuil muid bí céanna

Interesting movie, I enjoyed it. I see people who simply get text tattoos all the time. It's just as interesting to me as people who get elaborate pieces. I personally think there's nothing wrong with them. You could always choose an interesting font to have it written in, or write it out yourself and have it done in your own handwriting. It's all very personal, a matter of taste. Just be prepared to explain the meaning or the movie to people -- you'll get questions from time to time about it. I've noticed more people have questions about text tattoos than graphic tattoos.

In all honesty I'm not really sure as I don't have a text tattoo! All of my tattoos are of something! The only text I could really ever see going on my body would be my children's names!
