    I'm finally 18, which means tattoos! I was thinking of getting lettering on my chest, kind of like this:
    [​IMG]

    Mine would read "I am invincible as long as I'm alive"
    Should I get it in two rows or with smaller font? I think I would rather go with two lines but maybe someone knows better than me.

    Also, how much should it cost? I went to my local parlor and they suggested anywhere from $200 to $300 based on the size of the text. I thought that was extremely reasonable. Any arguments?

    you really want to waste your chest on text?

    I had a lot of ideas at 18 that i'm really glad I didn't get.

    don't rush into anything.

    What you think is cool now when you're still a kid will almost definitely not be cool to you in a decade.

    that's long for chest script. i think two rows would look bad so if you decide to go w.it go w. smaller font.

    with script similar to pic posted its not like he would not be able to add to chest later.

    Nico from Two Roses Tattoo in San Diego.
    I was in the navy at that point in time and was fortunate enough to be stationed there.

    I get what you're saying with this and I've heard it a lot but I've been asking my parents to get it since i was 15. I've always wanted this quote, I've just modified where I want to get it over the years.

    I don't think the smaller font would look good on a guy in the chest area. It seems very feminine to get small script on your chest.

    Why not up your side?

    Wait a few years you change more between 18 and 21-23 than you do at any other time in your life. You may not even like John Mayer in a couple years.

    I got script on my chest last year. I still really like it. But now I really just want a huge piece. Might cover it up. Or just include it somehow. We'll see.

    Wasn't nearly as bad as I was expecting. It took less than an hour and a half too. I'll post pics later!

    Cell phone picture, but you get the idea!
    I don't know if I had mentioned it, but I decided on some shorter lyrics. I think they capture the same meaning.
    I'm really happy with it for a first tattoo. Maybe i'll have him add more vine work to the words on the left when i go in for my next tattoo.
