    Hey all, don't really post much but I thought I'd try and get some opinions. I was thinking about getting "Evil holds within itself, the means to it's own destruction" as a tattoo somewhere but I'm not sure what would be the best location. Any thoughts?

    I for one don't see anything wrong with it, all my ideas envolve words or phrases in some way.

    Just don't know where to put it. I don't think it would fit on an arm or leg. I'm thinking maybe my upper back. we'll see. Not sure what type of lettering I want either.

    just make sure you have a good artist who won't fuck up the lines, and if you get really intricte swirly stuff it will be hard to read and blur a lot over time

    My first tattoo is going to be just words, and it means a lot to me. In fact, a few of my friends are getting them too, because of the connection we have to it. I think all the styles and placements will be different though

    As for the phrase, as stated above, it's kinda long so I don't know where it's going yet. I was thinking Script for the font but this could all change when I get there. I have a piece in the middle of my shoulder blades so I was thinking the only place with enough room might be right above that on the very top of my back. Might need to do 2 lines though.

    My friend did this one tattoo that was an entire bible verse in big, block letters down and across the guy's entire back. I'm not into bible verses, but it was really fucking cool looking.

    Thanks for the input everyone. I'm thinking that it either has to go on my back, or stomach so I'll let you know what happends and I'll definitly post pics when it's done.

    Just so you know, there shouldn't be an apostrophre in "its" in that sentence, and I don't think the first comma should be there, either.
