    Would rather you not question motives, & just help out with what I'm asking. That's the point of the thread, isn't it? That was my point in joining this site, as far as I can remember. But instead I've only gotten snide remarks & questionable comments.
    Hmmm, online tattoo forum not living up to its potential.
    WOW, I think this type of thread is a reason alot of top tatttoers only drop in on occasion at LST
    I feel I have better tattoos than I deserve.
    Thanks everybody

    What part of my suggestions were "snide remarks & questionable comments"?

    You've now added more input. Great, you don't want a cross. You don't want any of the traditional animals suggested. You do want a banner wrapped around something. You've now added another possible element: a sun. All these are ideas you had already, right (even though you didn't give us all of them at first). How about you let your artist know these exact ideas? I bet you he/she can draw a really nice banner wrapped around a sun that has colours and other elements that make it very clear that it's a sun.

    Just because you don't like the ideas/suggestions you were given (at least, the reasonable ones. It is indeed taking lots of restrain not to just take the piss out of you), doesn't make them any less valid. We don't know what you have in mind. We can't see where you want this done, how big, or what else may be in the way (other tattoos, huge moles, horrendous car-crash scars, etc), or see what it looks like once laid out on you. All these things affect what you get. Not to mention, no one here is going to draw it for you. One person will. Perhaps you should consult with him/her. Well, lookie here, it just so happens you have a consultation scheduled with the artist. That'll come in handy.

    I miss the old days of Usenet, when people knew what netiquette was (as opposed to the cesspool Usenet has now turned into). Here's a clue-by-four: We don't work for you.

    Re: Anyone care to help with a tattoo?

    Damn, I got beat to it. I will add a bit though, just because I want to. I remember the first few times I went in to tattoo studios. There was definitely an air of "if you don't feel like you fit in here, you probably don't". I know there is something to be said about artists being polite "enough" to consumers, but at the end of the day a tattoo studio is not your grandma's gift shoppe. I've also felt a bit of the same thing here. From what I can tell this is not your run of the mill "dude I got a dope-ass tribal armband!" tattoo forum. It seems to be a really well run place, where most of the people involved are serious about what they do. The artists on here seem to be the real deal and most of the non-artists seem to be serious about getting tattooed. That means you're gonna get the same shit here that you would if you walked in to a shop. As PhilB so eloquently put it... we don't work for you.

    Now that my rant is done I'll try to form a serious response to your original question.
    It may just be me, but the idea of the word "rejoice" inside a banner seems like an odd idea for someone of no religious leaning. Regardless of your intention a lot of people will read it as religious. I'm also not a real big fan text combined with other stuff... although there are certainly exceptions to everything. I've heard it said, and I think it's a valid point, that if you want a tattoo to "say" something then often a good artist can make it "say" what you want without having to spell it out. I would get just a nice sun or just the word "rejoice" in a nice script before I would go putting them together.

    I'm curious about the roots of your idea for this...are you pagan or a naturalist or something and trying to convey a rejoicing for nature? Recovering from something and rejoicing for another day above ground?

    Anyone have any good advice/ ideas I can throw around & brain storm with? Would be truly appreciated, along with every other type of kindness I can spew at you guys.
    Ask me questions if that helps you get an idea,
    personal or not, I'll answer it proudly.
    Thanks!

    Getting a bunch of advice on the internet makes the tattooers job that much harder. I am not going to judge your idea, but the whole thing doesn't make sense to me, you want traditional, but you want thin lines? Plus you don't seem to reject most ideas for a traditional tattoo. You want the word Rejoice, but not to be related to any religious imagery? It's really hard to truly convey your idea on the internet and that's probably why tattooers make you come in for consultations. Good luck.

    Some of the best tattoos come out from people with little and no strict guidelines from the person getting the tatttoo. If you let the tattooer do their job and make your tattoo become a part of their art form I beleive that your tattoo will come together alot better than asking around for advice from complete strangers. Instead of asking what to get have a general sense of what you want, then ask WHO to go to. Because you should have a solid relationship with your artist and in such a great tattoo will correspond.

    Naked lady. If that isn't something to rejoice over, I don't know what is!

    this one must have went over everyone's head
    It didn't go over anyones head. Read your own post, "Anyone have any good advice/ ideas I can throw around & brain storm with?"

    Here's some advice - Don't get pissy when you don't get the answers you want.

    Re: Anyone care to help with a tattoo?

    i think i've got it! how about... a banner... with the word "REJOICE"... wrapping around a sun! sounds like you already know what you want and it would make a fine tattoo. hopefully your artist can make the sun look like a sun.

    hope that helps!

    Re: Anyone care to help with a tattoo?

    maybe instead of "rejoice" use "enlighten"

    ie if you would have enlightened us that you wanted a sun and banner from the start we wouldnt have given some useless ideas
    I feel I have better tattoos than I deserve.
    Thanks everybody

    i just read this, I meant to articulate that LST has some of the top tattooers participating and would possibly participate more if people on the interwebz didnt make them want to shoot themselves in the face
