I need your guy's advice/help.

First, I need a clear picture of every symbol on FMA. (example: uroboros, ect.) Second, I need your advice on something related to this.
I will be getting a tattoo, one of which will be a symbol from FMA. I am thinking along the lines of a uroboros, or the symbol that Roy has. And I also need to decide where to place it. This will be one of two places -until I decide to get more:

back of my hand, or back of my neck.

I would create a poll, but it's kind of a waste, so pleeease just comment suggestions? ^_^

If you're determined to do such a thing, I'd definitely vote for the ourobouros symbol, on the back of the neck. :3 And please report any unusual generation of shapechanging powers.

I vote for the flamel, either on your arm (like Al) or on your upper chest (like Izumi and the lead singer for YeLLOW Generation). While this probably won't give you instantaneous transmutation powers, please let us know anyway ;3

Hrm, I'd suggest an Ouroboros on the back of your hand. Like Greed! ^^

Back of the neck would be cool, but, um, ouch? *wants a tattoo, but hates needles*

And I'd say go for the array, but I'm biased. ^^;

Back of the neck sounds painful, but it's a better idea than the hand because you can hide it easier if need be (as for job interviews). If back of neck, yeah, I'd go for something circular. I have a preference for Roy's sign, but the ouroboros would do nicely as well.

Okay. I've "worked" in various tattoo studios for two or three years now. Just to establish a tad bit of credibility. ^_^

Any decent tattoo studio you go to will not tattoo you on your hand. If they readily say "Sure, we'll do it.", you need to go elsewhere because they know nothing about their own craft. The reason tattoo studios don't do hand tattoos is mainly because they wear off all kinds of fast. The skin on your hands and feet is constantly sloughing off, so it will blur and look terrible really fast, and you'll have to go through your whole life constantly getting touch-ups.

Many places won't do neck tattoos without lots of argument, and generally they charge more if they give in and do it. This is because, like the hand, the neck is a very difficult place to cover. I would say, if you must, get it below your shirt collar or above your hairline [they'd shave off some of your baby hair, tattoo there, and the hair would grow back over it, but it'd still be visible]. Or, better yet, get it done in UV ink. That way it'll only show under blacklight, and you can put it in whatever visible spot you want without having to worry. ^_^ I, personally, recommend doing it in UV ink and placing it wherever you want.

I have no problem getting touch-ups if need be. I know plenty of people who have their whole arms/hands done, despite the cost. I also know people that get tattoos on their feet too, and they're doing great ^_^

I also have a friend who has a tattoo on her neck. I get a tattoo to SHOW it, not cover it up. Here, in Canada, they just do what you like without much argument (customer always right thing).
Anyway, she's had the one on her neck for ages. Not to mentiion, I wear my hair down half the time, as well as up, and my hair is way past my boobs in back and front.
Also, I'm NEVER in blacklight, so tha'd be a complete waste of 100 bucks (or more).

I appreciate the tips, but they make 0 sense at the same time as they make sense. XD don't worry about me, I'm an avid piercer (have tongue, labrett, nose, ect) and all my friends have tattoos as well as piercings. I'm also friends with people at two tattoo parlors. <3

I just got Ed's symbol done on my leg so I instantly love you ^^

At the same time I got mine done, my friend got a Gemini symbol done on the back of her neck and it's AWESOME. Her only complaint is she can't see it of course, but she loves it otherwise and it looks great. So, that's my vote and must see pictures!

I'd say go with the oroborous or flamel.
zeeeee joebbgc___whore on August 14th, 2004 06:47 pm (UTC)
go with either greed's uroborus on the back of the hand, but that's really visible.

i think lust's uroborus in the cleavage area would look coooool.
sylikasylika on August 14th, 2004 10:26 pm (UTC)
Personally, I'd choose the flamel. (Like, I *will* get it tattooed - just need to coax my mom.) Or the oroborous sign, but not on the hand... Among other signs, only the human transmutation circle and Roy's are interesting (but the first has lots of details). Blah.

I'll place my vote for Dante's homunculus-weakening array. I love that thing. (even though it wasn't one of the choices -_-) It's a couple of pages back in the comm, I think.

Ourobos all the way!! Do the back of the neck - the back of the hand is just kind of... tacky in my opinion; only Greed can pull it off XD

I hate to say it..but it hasn't been said yet.

Are you SURE you want to get a tattoo of FMA? Tattoos are very expensive to remove if you decide you don't want it later.
Alymother on August 15th, 2004 07:41 pm (UTC)
oO for one, I've given a lot of thought on a tattoo -2yrs to be exact, and I enjoy alchemy and symbolism and I love the oroboros. So why not? I'll never hate this anime.

I think I'm old enough to know what I want.
FireDreamerchilayse on August 15th, 2004 07:43 pm (UTC)
Okay! ^-^ Just checking.
