    thinking of a Fett tat

    OK guys (and gals) I've been thinking about getting my first tatoo for several years now and I'm pretty sure a Fett theme is what I want. I'd be willing to bet there are several TDH members who sport Fett/Mando tats who can give good advice.
    I'm thinking of just a black (or maybe red) mythosaur skull (ROTJ style of course ) on my left shoulder.
    Thoughts? Opinions? Thanks bros!

    I have one on my right shoulder...black left arm already has a 1/4 sleeve so couldnt do it there! But red or black skull would be my vote. I might get the jaster mereel skull on my calf sometime I like that one as well

    I can't say anything against it. Mine (as you see in my avatar) is on my left calf, b/c I like the way the shape of the skull fit my leg and it allowed me to do it much larger. Of my 11 tattoos it is my largest. It is however backwards. It took me over a year to realize this as I only saw it clearly in a mirror and it always looked right. At this point I kinda like that b/c it makes it just a tiny bit unique.

    Cool; thanks guys!
    So what should I expect to pay for a one color Mythosaur skull, not too big, on the shoulder?

    Well I'll chime in... you could do your coloring like mine.
    I didn't want mine to look like a sticker so we did this concept a few years ago.
    I'd like to get it touched up a bit now.
    Mine ran about $100 or so and took about 45 min it about 7 inches give or take its hard to measure the back of your neck by yourself...

    Re: thinking of a Fett tat

    I've been itching for a new tat myself and a Fett one has been looking pretty good lately, but me....I tend to go extreme. I have my left forearm from elbow to wrist covered...so that's half-sleeved, I have my right forearm almost completely sleeved from shoulder to wrist....I have 2 on my chest....and when I go for a Fett tat....I'll probably go for some big custom, crazy detailed and colored piece over just the skull....although adding my BH number to it is looking like a possibility now too. Just have to make sure I can fit the whole idea onto the one arm. See, my left arm is full of tributes to my Father, God rest his soul, and my right arm is full of tributes to things that are big in my life.....soooo.....let us know how it goes and I'll let YOU guys know! LOL

    Re: thinking of a Fett tat

    i've got this beauty tattooed on my right thigh, wanted a star wars take on the traditional "dagger through skull" tatt. my left thigh is the stormtrooper in my avatar. Sorry about the **** camera pic, plus the tatt is on a curve so it looks a bit odd haha

    Really the AF won't let you have tats on your upper arm? That sucks. I'm in the Army and we're now allowed to have tats on the neck and hands. You'd think upper arms wouldn't be an issue since their covered 95% of the time by uniform sleeves anyway.

    AF at times can roll up their sleeves on their uniforms....

    Where we have to swelter in our Uni's they get to chill lol...

    One thing I hate about the army...just let us roll our sleeves up for Pete's Sakes!

    Glock...

    You got anymore pics of your work?

    You cant cover more than 25% of an exposed Body part....sooo i cant do to much below the sleeve line on the arm. I have a 1/4 sleeve on my left arm. It extends below my sleeve line a little bit up to my shoulder. My arms are covered all the time except if I was in short sleeve dress uniform (which I dont like to wear short sleeve Blues...I think they look dumb. More of a long sleeves and tie) But in my flight suit not allowed to roll up my sleeves at all. Not like the ABU were you can roll em up.
