Default Artistic people, think you can offer some suggestions?

So I am sort of planning a tattoo I'd like to get. Ideally on my collar bone *gulp*. I want it to be this quote:
Quote:
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye
and sort of staggered by the two parts... I'd be happy with a little art around it, not just strictly font and would like a pretty hand writing'ish font... if anyone had some spare time and wanted to sketch, that'd be cool.. Otherwise, just general ideas and suggestions? Thanks!

Kinda like this, for body positioning, though could be a little angled too.

I don't know tattoos at all, but that quote seems awfully long - nice sentiment, just really long...

That was my thought too. I would think you'd only want the first or second half (before/after the semi-colon)

Yeah, I know it's pretty long. Which is why I can't quite figure out how I want it to go on my body, you know? But I can't bring myself to use only one part or the other.

My first thought was it's a little too long, too.

How about putting the first part on your right side, and the second part on your left?

The quote is quite long, and the smaller the script needed to keep it along the collarbone won't look good.

I think if you want the whole quote, you'll want to split it up. Maybe half on the top side of your collarbone and the second on the bottom of your collarbone?

I have 'to cool in the peppermint breeze' on my rib cage, I plan to expand on it with a portrait of Arnold now. I will also put Backup on the other side with something along the lines of 'smile because it happened.'

Ribs offer a lot of space and they're uber fun.

What about something like that?

I'm considering doing the covered up elephant on my wrist, and having the elephant put in in white ink. I LOVE le petit prince!
