Im turning 18 in a few months and i would love a steelers tattoo. It would be appreciated if i could get some ideas or tips.

A lot of things won't be there for you all the time. The steelers will, right?

I'm actually working on mine right now, but it probably won't be until I finish my sleeve.

If you want to go hardcore, I'm looking at going blackwork for mine.

Blackwork is when you tattoo all of the skin except for the design, which remains your skin color. Almost like an inverted tattoo. If you are having trouble imagining it look for some of the work former Rage Against the Machine bassist Tim C. has. He has a lot of it.

It is kind of painful, though, from what I hear. And I can tell you from experience, a whole day of going over one area with a lot of ink is a lot more brutal than doing a thin outline. Feels like road rash that keeps getting scrapped and scrapped. Also very expensive I would imagine (my friend does mine so I get insane deals).

Like I said, just an idea if you want to go hard.

Aye.

I do suppose its a bit intense for a first Tat. My first one's were writing down the backs of my arms.

I'll sleep on it and let you know if I dream up anything sweet.

All I gotta say is...

Think about it for a LONG time. IT will be with you forever, or it will be a LOT of money to remove (and painful).

When you get it done... Because your young, and not sure what your job/career is going to be, make sure you get it in a place that you can cover when you need to look "respectable." I would suggest not the lower arm or just above the elbow, because many jobs will allow you to wear short-sleeve shirts if you don't have a tattoo.

Personally, I got mine on my calf. That way, whenever I have to look at all respectable, I just put on a pair of pants...

Oh yeah... I got a Taz on my calf... and no, it was LONG before Troy played for the Steelers.

If your going to get a tattoo of anything make sure you try to put something of yourself into it , whether it's a steeler tat or any kind of tat. It will mean alot more later on. I have quite a few and the ones that mean the most are the ones I did the most thought about. Beware they are addicting and fun.

Me and the wife are doing matching logo's with 5 trophies below the logo on the back of the neck. And using the lower portion of the neck at the widest point will allow for additional trophies to be added. I have a big neck so I am doing a bigger logo while the wife does a smaller logo on hers.

I'm sure the Steelers will be there. But, will they change their logo??

I dont see them changing it as long as the Rooneys own the team.

Usually I'm against any tattoos, but since you're gonna get tattoo on YOUR BODY, not mine this is my suggestion. Try getting the first one. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2006/players/01/10/tattoos0116/ :wink02:
