  • Thoughts on a new Tattoo.

    So I am itching to get another tattoo in the very near future. I already have two sleeves, a small back piece, one half completed sock on one leg and a calf piece on the other leg. I really want to get a side piece done on my ribs, but I am hesitant for one reason and one reason only...It gonna hurt!!! But I think I wanna get a poem of some sort. I was thinking of getting the third verse in "The Destruction of Sennacherib" by Lord Byron. It goes like this.

    For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,
    And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed.
    And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
    And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still


    I actually got the idea from the FX show "Archer". Pam, the HR rep, has it tattooed on her back. But I really dig it. Thoughts?

    Whatever boats your float, man. If you dig it, go for it. I think what you're going for is pretty cool, as far as the verse goes - compared to alot of other poem/text/quote-on-the-ribs tattoos that I see sometimes that end up being so generic. I've never had anything done on my ribs, but it's definitely no fun, from what I've heard. I'm long overdue to have some more work done, myself.

        One of my ex gf's has her whole left rib caged tattooed so if she can do it, i'm sure you can.

                Well as long as you know its a poem based on a biblical event, concerning angels and chosen people. Go for it.

                  It seems like a bit of a wall of text. Make a model of the text full-size and see how far it's going to stretch around.

                  One of my exes had a rib tattoo (cheers, Kwalc) and the text was about half that length, but still covered most of the rib area. Then again, I would hope your ribs are a bit bigger than hers.
