    Hi!

    Thanks a lot all, I have a much better understanding now. Now, how to decide where to get the tattoo? Is it allowed to make indications for someone good at scripts here at the forum? I will look for someone around Fort Lauderdale area. What is the best way?

    Hi!

    I thought it should be kept shaved for some reason, but probably pure ignorance😃

    Hi!

    I am kind of stuck with one thing; is it really important to keep its orientation to be possible for other people to see it correctly? Is it something I`ll regret if I have it for my view mainly? For instance I was even thinking to have it reverse -if I decide to have it on my chest- so that I can read it when I look at the mirror. Does it make any sense, or is it plain silly?

    Hi!

    For some reason I want it closer to my heart. I was even thinking of distributing the five lines to several parts, like the wrists, the neck, chest and maybe somewhere on the top ribs, but keeping it covered will be better I think. And being the beginner that I am, I think it will be better to keep it simple in order to avoid doing something weird.

    Hi!

    Thank you all for so many really very useful ideas! I will definitely double check the Chinese characters (though I am quite sure they are the elements, like fire, water etc) and ask them to be made smaller. Even like that, though, I understand the Russian script wouldn`t fit on my lower arm. Something else that I haven`t thought before is the questions I would get. Is it considered rude to not give explanations, or say something like "that`s a long story"? This is too personal for me to be sharing with everybody. Which also makes me think -as John suggested- to put it out of plain view. But where would that be? I would love it directly near my heart but don`t know if that would be smart -again for maintenance reasons, as in shaving chest hair🙄

    Hi!

    Thanks John, I just found that out too 🙂 Anyway, I`ll just go ahead then. This is a letter I received from my wife, whom we lost later on. I feel I need to have this on me for my emotions for her, and also somehow think this will help me move on, and a couple of other spiritual reasons. Long story short, I would like to keep her handwriting exactly as it is if possible. It`s in Russian, and has some Chinese symbols (I found out they are the elements). I feel the Chinese symbols can be smaller and also placed differently (as long as they are still connected with the sentences they correspond to). The writing in Russian doesn`t make exact sense, in that it uses different tenses for some reason, but they do have an order. I was thinking my left arm, between my wrist and elbow, upside down in a way that I could read it, but I was told that would be too small and letters tend to deform by time. It could also be on my chest, but don`t know how to deal with the chest hair then, if I need to shave etc. It could also be my neck, but I don`t know if that is too bold an idea. Thanks a lot in advance for any ideas and sorry for so much undefined stuff, but I didn`t know where to start!

    Hi!

    Nice being here! I have zero tattoos, and actually wasn`t thinking of having any, but I have this scripture that I want to be with me, or `on me` to be precise 🙂 all the time. It`s a little oddly shaped so I will post it in the tattoo advice section and see if anyone can give this first timer any ideas!
