    If it's just the writing you're after, what do you need a design for? :)

    Hi, I'm a total tattoo fan lol, rather obsessed with the things! Have quite a few of my own with plans for more.

    When getting a tattoo firstly find a GOOD artist in your area that comes recommended by people, don't just go to any shop as there are A LOT of not so good artists out there. Tattooing is a very profitable business and there are a lot of people that have jumped on the band wagon that'd aren't good at what they do unfortunatley. Remember if you get something that isn't done well you'll end up hating it, and that's not a good thing.

    Think of what you want. To be honest, the lyrics may have a big meaning to you, and that's great if you want that, but it'll be way too much to fit on your wrist. Just won't go. Lettering has to be done quite big, if it's done too small you won't be able to read it and after time when the tattoo spreads it'll look terrible. That is a lot of lettering, so needs to go somewhere where it can be bigger, maybe the back of your shoulder?

    But whatever you decide, take your ideas along to your tattoo shop and speak to them about the design. A good tattooist won't mind going through it with you and coming up with a custom design for you, as long as you have a good idea of what you want they won't mind playing with it.

    As Sara said, if you're after different lettering styles dafont is the perfect place to look! Just be prepared to sit there for ages looking through them all lol.

    Good luck, I'm also planning a tattoo as a reward when I get to goal :D Great thing to have to remember your achievement and to keep you on track! I had a little one done for my halfway there mark :D
