I was thinking about getting 2 T's, crawling up from my hip, up to my rib cage.
Opinions?

Google yourself some pics. You'll find more than enough to get an idea of what you want. Must say that the tat sounds like it will hot. I like the placement. I'm still trying to figure out where and what I want to get.

I think a T tattoo would be REALLY neat on a persons foot.

Or, you know how people get a sparrow near each side of their collar bone? A T on each side would be so sick.

As a professional illustrator I've thought about designing myself a tarantula tattoo a time or two. I don't think I can go through with it though.

Rib cage is going to hurt. Do you have any tattoos? You may want to start out with a different portion of your body if this is your first tattoo. Not that you can't do it, just that it might be more than you can handle.

Also, B. smithi: people who arn't in the hobby will recognize because they're always in movies so thats a plus.

I don't think other people recognizing the species is an issue. 99.99% of people will simply see "spider" regardless of what species you choose. It's not really for other people anyway.

Are you considering one on each side or one following the other? I think its gona be great, you better post pics when done and possibly consider multiple sittings for optimal quality

That would be really sick. What type?

Haha, i'd go for it if i were you! Tattoo's that resemble things that are important to the person are the best types!

Haha, i've heard the ribcage is painful, yes. I do have other tattoos though. I have one on my wrist, and another on my arse. I've heard wrist tattoos aren't fun, but i didn't feel it at all. Luckily, my pain tolerance is awesome.

One following the other! :D I'll deffinetly post pics when things get going, and i think i'll have to go in sessions. I think i'm starting right after thanksgiving.

She asked for feed back I gave it; personally I'd go with P. rufilata but my girlfriend would killl me if I got a tarantula inked where she could always see it.

I would like to see a king baboon in threat posture (3D type of course) on someones side. If I were ever to get a tat, that would be it!!

That'd be REALLY cool! I was thinking the 2 near the hip and ribs would give a bit more of a femanine appeal to the tattoo though.

I think I am going to have to get me a P. irminia somewhere on me...

P.S. Tats on the rib cage do not hurt that bad! ;)

That sounds really awesome!! :clap:
Like your idea with the sparrows.
I wanted to get a sparrow on my rib cage.
I like the idea of it going from hip to ribcage.. are you going to have some little T traveling foot prints inked from hip to ribcage?
So cool.

February but lots of things to put money to before it happens.. Sacrifices, lol :)
Haha, understandable! Tattoos aren't cheap, that's for sure.

That'd be cool. i'd imagine any p. would be awesome as a tatt, they just have such pretty markings.

I hope not! I have a good pain threshold, so i think i'll be okay!

The thought of a T tat has come across my mind but wouldn't know what species/where to get it
