    Looks nice. How big? I want go get a fourth tattoo, of Spider-Man's spider emblem but have never found a good picture of the version I like.

    I was thinking of having it large enought to go from shoulder to shoulder, maybe slightly smaller since I'll have it a bit lower.

    The Spider-Man emblem seems like a cool idea. What else have you got? Personally, I've got a dagger on my right arm, the Borg logo on my chest and a (C) on my wrist.

    That tattoo resembles a little too much the one that Francis Dollarhyde has in "Red Dragon", if you ask me. [​IMG]

    I like it.

    Of course I'm biased as I just love tattoos.

    I need more myself.

    Just one word of advice: If you are going to do it solid black, make sure you pick an artist who is going to do a good job with nice sharp, clean lines. Something like that would be a bitch to try to cover over later if it doesn't turn out well.

    Could look cool... personally I might make them more vertical so as to be less like wings and just more of
    a back design... but if that's what you're looking for,
    I think it's a good choice.
    I have a skull(pushead drawing) and a dragon on my left
    arm, a grim reaper on my right, a decaying eagle on my
    right shoulder and my wife's initials on my finger.

    I know a kid who, as a senior in High School, got "LOVE" tattooed across his back. He's still working on it, 3 years later.

    Go for it. The design looks cool.

    I like it okay. A bit on the tribal side. Placement would be key. Too high or low and it will look lame.
    Listen to Rain, solid black is a bitch. One of my dragons had to filled three times. I never went back to that guy again. I'm pretty inked myself

    Haven't taken the plunge yet myself, although I've always admired tribal-style stuff. Love your spider Frank! [​IMG]

    Although, being a super-geek, I've always kinda wanted to have this somewhere: [​IMG]

    I'm such a geek. [​IMG]

    Tony, my friend has that on his shoulder. I think it looks good as a tattoo.

    I've been thinking about doing something tribal but with the Montreal Canadien's logo in the center. All in black so that unless you look closely, you would not know that it's a tribute to my favourite team.
