How should I get this tattoo?

How should I get this tattoo? Topic: Upper arm tattoos writing letters

Question: I want to get ONE of the following quotes on my arm: QUOTE #1: "Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions." GERMAN: Habe Geduld mit allem, was in deinem Herzen ungelöst ist, und versuche, die Fragen selbst zu lieben. Suche nicht nach Antworten, die dir nicht gegeben werden können, weil du sie nicht leben könntest. Und der Punkt ist, alles zu leben. Lebe die Fragen. " QUOTE #2 "Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live with them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day." GERMAN: "Habe Geduld gegen alles Ungelöste in deinem Herzen und versuche, die Fragen selbst lieb zu haben, wie verschlossene Stuben oder ein neues Buch, das in fremder Sprache geschrieben ist. Forsche nicht nach Antworten, die dir nicht gegeben sind, weil du sie nicht leben kannst. Und darum handelt es sich doch: alles zu leben. Lebe jetzt die Fragen. Vielleicht lebst du dann eines neuen Tages, ohne es zu merken, in die Antwort hinein." I'm not sure if I should get them in English or German. Anyways, I want (again) ONE on my left arm. I'd prefer it to be on the upper part of the arm. I was thinking about getting it (in a straight standing position) vertically down, like Lady Gaga's, but I think since it's in German and in the same place, it might seem to "I'm-getting-it-because-Gaga-has-it-" tattoo. So I don't know any other way. I was also thinking it being like a wrap around, and separated by some type of line. I really don't know.

No offense, but you'll be hard-pressed to find a reputable artist to do a quote that long. When doing tattoos with letters, they need to be large, to allow for aging. As tattoos age, the ink settles further into the skin. If you try to stretch that all out onto your arm, it will eventually look like scribbles, and all the letters will run into each other. Not a good idea. if you do find an artist to do it, they want your money, and don't care about quality.

I think its a good idea to have your dad around (not right next to you or anything when you tell her, but maybe in the living room or something in case things get a bit nasty) to help smooth things over if she does become unreasonably upset. Kudos that you've decided to tell your parents even though you didn't have to, but also remember that you ARE twenty-one years old so while your mom might not agree or become upset, it is your body and you are an adult. Plus, I'm sure she'll come around sooner or later. The best way (in my opinion) is to do it is to be blunt and straight to the point. Sit her down (which sounds dramatic, but it really isn't haha) and tell her that you're going to get a tattoo with your sister. Don't immediately jump into a lengthy defense (e.g. "And before you say it, _____ did not pressure me or anything, I'm doing it because I want to) because she'll probably assume the opposite. Let it sink in that you are getting a tattoo and then when she starts firing off questions, answer them calmly. I know your dad doesn't support it but at least he respects it so maybe ask him for the best way to break the news to your mom since I (and other answerers) don't know your mom's personality/temperament.

Simply so you recognize the danger of Hepatitis or HIV from an illegal tattoo is bigger than 60% if completed "in dwelling" and round forty-50% if accomplished in a dodgy tattoo parlour. Usually on account that that they're possible skipping corners with sterilization amongst different things. You may also want to get a blood scan achieved. At least you've gotten a good, significant tattoo. That's a huge step up from most 14yr olds asking about or getting tattoos. You're customarily the only one who will not regret it.

Those are pretty long quotes. As far as language goes choose the language that means more to you. Also be careful with those tattoos as I said they are pretty long, and if the lettering is not big enough it can bleed together and become unreadable over time. Check with your tat artist to make sure you have the lettering size right.

Hmmmmm,you want a tattoo, you don't know what you want, and some are tacky. I think you need to rethink your plan. To me a tacky tat would be a penis on your forearm. Don't get a tattoo because you saw a cool design. Do some research first, there are many great styles out there.
