Greetings all -
First post of the Forums after lurking a while.
Background: I want to get a tattoo. This will be my first ever tattoo. I decided back in September 2000 that I wanted to get the Boba Fett Mandalorian skull symbol as a tattoo. I spoke with some people back them about tattoos and the best piece of advice I received was from someone who told me to wait a while, and if you are still certain after a couple of years that you want that tattoo, go for it.
So here I am - 10 years later and still wanting the Mandalorian skull symbol as a tattoo. So I came here to ask a few questions/advice from the expects. I have read the posts about other tattoos here (and similar to the one that I am posting) and I didn't want to hijack anyones thread (so sorry if posting something similar). But I figured some time has past since a similar thread and maybe people have more advice/suggestions, etc.
I haven't decided on an exact spot, but I have narrowed it down to my left side on my rib cage. I work in a professional environment, so I need something that is hidden (therefore biceps, forearms, etc would be appropriate for me).
Any suggestions as to good spots for this type of tattoo? My girlfriend has done a couple of rough drawings of the design on various areas for us to get a feel for it. I like how it looks there, but we haven't decided on a size.
Besides suggestions for places for the tattoo, I am looking for other insight like should I shade it or leave it with just an outline? How large should I have it?
I have seen the pics of the same design on the back and I am really liking that place too.
Also, I am confused to what the difference is between the ESB design and the ROTJ design...
So, please, ANY comments/suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
