Oh good, it's not just me, then.

I would put it else where.. but I really just don't know where. I am not keen on around my waist (I did think of that, actually) because I don't often show that area of my body at all (stretch marks that I don't like!), and I'd like to have a tattoo that's visible but can be covered.

I am going to send the info to my boyfriends tattoo artist (the guy that'll be doing it for me) and see what he says and see what he can draw up.

But in general, I am open to other suggestions for body spots that will allow me to use the whole quote.

Ribcage. I have a drawing and a quote from Shakespeare's "Julius Ceasar" on my left side. Also, no one can see it unless I want them to. Unless I'm in a bathing suit Even my dragon on my back will show if I'm wearing a specific cut of shirt, just the top, but you can see it there. No one can see the ribcage tattoo. That's also something to consider. I got it there because I didn't want anyone to be able to look at it and judge me by it. Now that I'm older and give less of a f*ck and have chosen a job where I won't be judged for having tattoos, I want more that *I* can look at. I know it's there on my side, but I frequently forget about it. In fact, I hardly ever remember I have it. Same with my back tattoo. It's a HUGE piece, and still not finished, but I almost never remember I have it. I can't see it without looking in a mirror, so I forget about it. Now I want tattoos I can look at and admire. So I got one on my bicep. Full color, takes up the entirety of the interior of my bicep, and I LOVE looking at it. It's gorgeous. The rest of my tattoos are black, and I'm planning another one in black and grey, but with this one I'm going to do a halfsleeve in all color. There's no black in this tattoo at all.

The ribcage didn't hurt terribly for me, in fact, it sort of tickled, but it's a tough spot for a lot of people. The worst was my dragon, over my spine. I wanted to cry. My bicep wasn't bad except near my armpit

The quote is split into two, above and below the drawing and it's

"Cry Havoc,

And let slip the dogs of War"

I'd post a picture, but I'm planning on having the drawing changed eventually, but the words look good, they're in Papyrus font (I know, I know, lol) and I've had it for about 7 or 8 years now.

I have a couple quotes I'd like, but I have the sort of same problem you do. Placement. I know where I'd LIKE to get them (forearm) but I'm not sure I want to do that if I could put them some place else and still have them. My sister has a small quote "No Lies, Just Love" on her feet, across the top, but your quote is kind of long for that, and as much as I didn't mind a ribcage tattoo, you couldn't pay me enough money to get my feet tattooed.

But, be warned, it's hard to get just one. I got the one on my bicep (it's of the Colorado Rockies, btw) and now I'm planning the other half of this arm and turning it into a halfsleeve, and planning a halfsleeve for the other arm.

Well damnit, now I am looking at other Le Petit Prince quotes.. siiigh. BUT! I just had a brilliant idea... now to figure out if it'd work.

Thinking I'd like "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly;" all in a nice font, black ink. Then underneath it, "what is essential is invisible to the eye." in white ink... Not sure how it'd look on my pale skin though... hmm.. Off to do some research!

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.

Yeah, what she said. Ribcage tattoos are the shiznit.

Quotes, even longer ones, normally look fantastic on the ribs. Easy to cover, easy to show if you want. Also, on the inside of the upper arm could work too.

CD! I WANNA SEE YOUR ROCKIES INK! I've got a "Tribute to the West" thigh tattoo that I'm working up right now. I'M SO STOKED.

This was right after I got it done. It's healed up quite nicely now.
