    I am considering getting some ink, lol... I'm from samoan/scottish backgrounds, different I know; and was thinking of designing something incorperating symbolism from both.

    I like Robbie Magasiva's one here: http://2008.nzfestival.nzpost.co.nz...7f280e91b0c859a966bc8/full/153+NF8FN+5140.jpg

    thats the best photo of it I could find... I thought maybe something like that but involving a tartan or something? Although it's quite a permanent thing and would need careful consideration!

    Any ideas of how to combine, avoiding tackiness as much as possible?

    I personally would love to have a pair of wings tattooed on my back.

    It might hurt, but the symbolism will be there - with wings, I can be free :smile:

    I think you just got me in trouble.

    Hope you're behaving yourself up in Angel Land.
