Hi, yeah I already have a tattoo I was thinking of getting 'My Dad, My Heart, My Sole, My Life' in writing down my waist. Not too bothered on the price, no picture just text thanks for your advice =) x
symbols are alright to a certain extent as you know the meaning behind it but seen as the OP has already said no picture I'm pretty sure this also means a no for symbols. I also have noticed that chinese letters are becoming increasingly common so thats another downside against them imo though done in the right way they can look good, no offence to anyone that has one just really consider it before you get one and make sure the translation is right
Yeah I agree symbols look very nice I just cant be sure they will give me the right meaning and I would like it to be obvious its about my Dad. I will be getting one around Christmas I will keep you updated thankyou everyone x
Sarah4, can I ask, is it a memorial tattoo? I have a scroll on my leg with a quill, (he liked writing) as though ink is still dripping from it, it says, "in loving memory... Dad. 1943-1995"
I really like it, it was something I thought was fairly original, rather than R.I.P etc..
I also have a memorial one of a tank for my Grandad as he made tanks after the Korean war and was in them during the war.. It has his army number on the front in the same font as the army would have a serial number on a real tank..
My point is that you might want to do something specific to your Dad, something personal..
Let us all know what you end up getting..
Is you dad dead? Otherwise I would suggest waiting a bit. Without wanting to sound condescending, it appears to me, you are in an age where you would get such a tattoo because your dad gave you a pocket money raise, but next time he won't let you go out with this slutty dress, he is the most vile and repulsive of creatures to you.
Maybe you should wait with this, especially because you wanted "my dad, my sole" tattooed on you, until you find a good idea that's really fitting for your father in particular, not some generic stuff and until you have a really lasting bond with your father, that is not just because he treats you like a little spoilt princess.
