Tattoo stuff @ 04:52 pm

jackieblue:
I'm currently feelin: artistic
I'm currently hearin: U2 - Dirty Day

I want to get a couple more tattoos. One of them is going to be a thistle (for my ancestral Scotland) and the other(s) are U2 related.

One idea was to get a four-leafed clover, but instead of an outline of plain black lines I'd have the band's names tattooed...so basically the shape of the lobes of the clover would be outlined with BONO THE EDGE ADAM LARRY and then the inside would be green.

The second idea would be to have someone sketch out faces blending together, so that I'd have four distinct faces in a square (two on top, two below) but where they touch, they'd blend together....so, Bono's right cheek would blend to The Edge's left, The Edge's chin would blend to the top of Larry's head, Larry's left cheek would blend to Adam's right, and the top of Adam's head would blend with Bono's chin....but it'd all be in black and white sketch...

Any thoughts? Or other ideas?

Yes! It would be cute!

Keep in mind, however, that many U2-related tattoos already exist. I have seen pictures online of people who have U2's faces tattooed on their body, tattoos of 4-leaf clovers with BEAL on each leaf, etc. I have also seen, in person, a girl's tattoo of the Joshua Tree on her back. U2 tattoos are usually not one of a kind, but, they are quite special... and as long as you don't mind that there are probably other people with U2 tattoos similar to yours, then go ahead and get one!

But I always liked the Zooropa face. It's U2 related to the point where only other U2 fans will recognize it.

I don't like the second idea for a u2 tattoo at all, but that's just because I hate portrait tats with a passion.

I really like your idea for the four leaf clover. But I will add (from some one with three tats) if some one here can change your mind about something, you aren't ready for a tat! :)

I already have a tat (on my left ankle, it's a red maple leaf)...what I'm deciding on is a 3rd one. I'm getting ideas, and then when no one can change my mind about it, that's when i'll get it ;) It took me a year to decide on the exact type of maple leaf i wanted - it's very simple. Looks like the one on our flag, but outlined in purply red ink. It's not one of those stylized ones or anything - and I love it, the way it looks, the way it felt getting one...and now I want to think about another. My second one is going to be a thistle - just need to get the money together to have it done. But thanks for the advice.

No problem. Just a lot of people don't think before they get them, and in general I'm against band tattoos, but u2 would be the exception! :)
