Ouroboros Tattoo  
Next week I'm going to be getting my 11th tattoo, and I designed a special Ouroboros for myself (I've been looking at the FMA Ouroboros for over a year now, and I'm still not sick of it. So it means I won't get sick of having it on my body). Thing is I'm having trouble deciding which version to get (and also where to put it). If anyone wishes to help, please let me know ^^

Red, no outline

Red w/dark red outline


Just black ^^

Thanks ever so much for the help!

Wow, I really like the way that looks. I have been considering getting a tattoo of the Ouroboros for a while now. However, I'm not sure how I feel about some of the reds I have seen.

So, I'm trying to decide whether to say #1 or #3. (And wow..11...)

As far as position, that's where I'm stuck also, I have a blue-eyed black dragon on my left leg near the ankle, Vegeta pretty much on the back up my neck inbetween the shoulder blades, and so this one I either wanted it to be close to where Sloth's is except a little higher, or on the curve of my shoulder. (If you understand what I mean by that.)

Of course, I don't mind my tattoos being visible at all. I've considered each one long and hard before getting them done. I would put it where Lust has hers, but then I'd have to wear button up shirts all the time at work because my boss is a anti-tattoo type of person. (Even if she lets the fact that Vegeta peeks out the back of all my shirts. Don't want to blatantly get one now knowing how she feels about them.)

But also you have to think of the size you are going to get it. To me, too small and you lose some of the details you put it.

Well, I think that was probably the most unhelpful comment in the world. -.-" But I still love the way they look.

lol I have 'ol Veggie on BOTH legs XD (DBZ version and his older self minus the mustache). I'm think about 4-5 inches is a good size for an overall design like this (And I mean diameter of the serpent itself), just torn between where to put it (ad the color). I'm either thinking of placing it where Envy has his, or placing it on my left shoulder

Heh, I adore my Vegeta. He's chibified and whistling. XD

I've been leaning towards the left shoulder also, for various reasons, but it's hard to explain the exact location of where I want it. I have a couple of shirts that sit just so where it would be visible. (I love to show off the Vegeta tattoo, you meet a lot of interesting people that way.)

As far as color, I'd ask to see if you can see either pictures of reds they use, or something. Some of the artists here have massive booklets of their work. Some reds, I don't care for they are too dark/ugly to me. However, sometimes black doesn't turn out too great either. But I figure in the end when I actually do it, I'll good old red, just not some of the really dark ones.
