Hello everyone,

I'm Alex, 18 year old male from the United States. I currently don't have any tattoos but would like to get one soon. I have some ideas already and hope to hear some more from you guys!

Hope to meet some of you soon!

I really would like to get "So it goes" on my bicep. I think the quote speaks to my life a lot, like stuff happens and it's up to you how to deal with it. My main thought is that maybe it's too feminine but i'm not sure... Thoughts?

It is your tattoo on your arm. Get what you want. But, will that have meaning for you 30years from now? Be patient and think it through fully. What color? What style? What size? What exact placement? A picture can tell many stories.

Too feminine? Quotes are the fad tattoo of the moment - "So it goes" is in the same realm of "let it be", "believe", "not all those who wander are lost" and so on genre. I think it's more of an age/generation thing (18-24) rather than gender specific. Always very personally meaningful. I have a suspicion (from experience, but with early 90's popular tribal) when you are all in your 40's you will be snickering (and somewhat embarrassed) at yours and your buddies meaningful quote tattoos.

Graeme gave great advice using strong image instead of quote. Or like Mike said if you must have the quote, still use a strong image.

At least read the Slaughterhouse Five before you get a quote tattoo that is lifted from it ……….

So after thinking about it for a few days, I decided I would also like to get some kind of image to go with the "So it goes". I'm not a huge fan of the reaper idea because I don't really feel like that's the first image I thought of when the quote struck out to me.

Anyone have any other suggestions? Also thinking of maybe moving to the outer bicep/upper arm instead of inner bicep.

How about an owl head with the words 'so it hoots'.. get a Sasquatch with those words..But all kidding aside,the most important question is,do you have a good tattooer in mind.
