Question

 Hey everyone!
I am curious.
I KNOW there are people out there that HATE tats, but I love them, and I already have one and I've been thinking about getting another, except for the longest time I was wondering on WHAT to get. I've been deciding between different things (I take a long time to decide because I don't want to ever regret getting it done), and I had thought of maybe getting a tree of life---but what I REALLY wanted (but couldn't find) was a protection symbol. So, I found a runic protection symbol and while its nothing really fancy its one of the reasons why it attracts me.
I was wondering, out of curiosity, what part of the body you all think this symbol would look best on?

Wow! That looks fantastic. I can imagine it on your hip or something. I don't know just what came to mind.
Good Luck!
w.w.w.

I like ankles, upper arms, maybe a shoulder? I would vote for the ankle though :D

Its very pretty, and while intricate, isn't overdone. Also, looks a bit like a snowflake. Very cool.

Shoulderblade or lower back. It depends on how big you get it. But I'm leaning more toward shoulder.

lower back :)

That looks great! I could definitly see it on a shoulder blade or a wrist. I think it would look really nice there.

I have a tattoo on the back of my neck which everyone seems to like. My aunt has one on the inside of her wrist but I that might a bit showy (especially if you're a professional person, some bosses don't like that) She also has on on her foot (but she said it was more painful than childbirth and it swelled up for days....so maybe not)

Sorry, that wasn't particularly helpful.

Pretty symbol.

If it doesn't matter who sees it, i'd say back of the neck or inside of the wrist.
If you need to cover it up and don't mind the pain, chest/solar plexus area.

i'd say wrist.
and also, the way it's about protection, when it's on your wrist it's almost protecting your life force, or some shit.
cause of your major veins.
wrists link in majorly to life force for me, though, so that's just how i feel.
i dunno.
i can be overly symbolic.
but yeh, i would say wrist.

Hey hun :) Haven't spoken with you for a long while so I'll do a little catch up here.

Thanks for taking all the animations down -- the main reason I haven't been staying at the page long enough to send comments -- cause they were just too much for me (visual and audio stuff get to me a lot with my inner ear disorder).

Second, great to see all the fic you've been creating!! BTW, I'm doing NaNo this year, how about you?

Third, where's more of the Smallville/LoTR crossover??? /chuckle Eagerly awaiting it :)

Now, about the tat. I've heard that you have to be really, really careful about placing tats on the inside of your wrist due to the nerves, veins and all that that runs through the area. I'd suggest talking with a medical professional or whatever about that before having it done.

Given the design, which is really interesting and *does* look like the snowflake that someone mentioned, I'd go with -- depending on how big you are planning on having it:

Small:
Side of neck; back of neck; inner shoulder; back of shoulder; ankle/lower leg; sternum; maybe at the top of a breast...

Large:
Back of neck; back of shoulder; lower back/backside of pelvis; inner hip bone/pelvis...

Good luck :)

That design is just gorgeous, and I would think getting it on your lower back or maybe your hip would be cool.

I'd say a hip, maybe a shoulderblade or lower back. Never had a tat (yet) so i can't really help.

I like it, personally! Great idea.

hmm for some reason i like the wrist

Ok it really is up to you for this reasons... I believe circles goes almost everywhere.
On your
Foot,
Arms,
Left side of your upper chest. near shoulder I soppose
Right side of ^ (lol kind of where the x-men use to have their X symbols on the 90's I think)
Upper back or
Lower back,
Right side of your back
Left side of your back,
Back of your neck,
side of your torso/ on your ribs.
bellow your navel ( like an inch or two, could be said hip tattoo but I men bellow it)
Hip tattoo (Which wow... sexiest places of all. And although this is 1 circle it still works very well)

So it really depends on... How much pain you willing to take? How spiritual you wanna go with this tattoo? (Behind the neck, upper back, foot ect for me always seem very spiritual spots for me for some reasons) and how much money you willing to spend which corresponds with the size of the tattoo?

I have always like the wrist or back of the neck. A friend of mine has a symbol there and it looks great!

Oh, and I'm going to friend you if that's alright. I seem to be here more than checking my email lately.

Sure friend away! :D
