I don't have my thighs done yet, but I definitely think you should go big. It's such a good area to get a big piece compared to your arms, since they're skinnier, why waste it?

When it comes to covering my legs, I'm totally getting a gazelle on one thigh.

i have a large, almost finished ship on one of my thighs (since it's not finished, i have not posted photos of it in the ship thread) by El Brad Mariachi. on my left thigh, i have a smaller piece of a snake with a dagger going through it, and an envelope in it's mouth from Mario Desa. that left thigh is where all my "dark" tattoos are going to go (the really fucked up ones) since my right leg is becoming lyric themed.

Go big! I've started my thigh piece but am currently stuck as what to do with the back ground and top half of my leg, seeing as my back is going to be a samurai piece not quite sure how to get them to flow into each other..

As has been said go big!

I never thought about just how big of a piece of flesh it is until Scott Sylvia started my leg. He fit a huge reaper on the outside and some skeletons on the inside. he is still working on tattooing my leg but here are some old pictures of the tattoo in progress.

Pictures one and three of my leg tattoos

I've always enjoyed thigh pieces so I've thought about getting my family coat of arms done on the front of my thigh, any thoughts? Or maybe on the back of my thigh?... Or not on my legs at all?

Is that the thing where you type your last name into a webpage and it comes up with a rather generic looking image of your 'coat of arms'? A friend from a while ago did this, he ended up finding a decent tattoo artist even though the image was directly stencilled off the print-out he gave him; and I've seen a bunch of tattoos aparently taken from the same website that look almost identical (with a few colours and central symbol changed to represent the supposed family name).

However, I live in Australia and theres no real 'old family names' that date back to god knows when because everyone who lives here migrated within the last 200 years unless you are native, and coat of arms' arn't part of Aboriginal Australia's culture. Anyway my point is, if where you live you actually have coat of arms above your mantel piece in in your family history books or wherever they're kept, and that's what you want to represent your family, then go for it! Othwise, perhaps think about other imagery that symbolises your love for or bond to your family for a tattoo. Just my two cents:)

It definitely my family's coat of arms but thanks for your concern. My last name is rare enough that it doesn't even show up on those coat of arms sites anyways haha. I just don't know if it would work well as a thigh tattoo and if so should it be on the front, side, or back.

I hope I didn't come across as rude! Family history must be something I really just don't understand. As far as placement, if you are willing an artist would be able to play around with the foliage surrounding the actual coat of arms in order to help the design fit the shape of your leg better. I am not a tattoo artist. It sounds like you really want it on your thigh, so I'd say go for it! :)

    • One of the good points about saniderm is covering the wound while it is still fresh and CLEAN. I don't know anyone who has put it on after 2-3 days but if you trap ANY dirt or bacteria under it you are literally laying an infection nest. I wouldn't do it.  Not sure where on your body the tattoo is, and 3 days into healing it shouldn't really still be oozing - but possibly cover it with a very clean t-shirt or similar and if it's still stuck to that in the morning then use warm water to disengage and then gently clean with antibacterial soap.   
    • No, it doesn't work like that.  And for what it's worth, in my eyes - it doesn't look "wrong". Aside from the link in the previous thread, I've never done any research on Keloid scarring. Check that subject out. If it bothers you that much, perhaps see a dermatologist. 
    • HE'S GOT THE BUUUUUUUGGGG!!! 😁 @minisoda not sure if you've let us know who the artist is yet, but feel free to share! check out their prior work and see what they're into. if they usually do traditional colors, they might prefer to stick to that aesthetic. if they do some crazy shit, they might be open to new ideas.  i think adding an olive branch in an open talon would look a bit strange. during your next shading and color session, bounce your addition and background ideas off your artist and see what they think. in the end, you're wearing it and they're doing it, so your two opinions count way more than us shmucks.🤓
