Anyone considering taking the artistic plunge and get a Beatles tattoo of some sort? I know I am!

As soon as I'm eighteen, as I'm seventeen now (and a word for you tattoo wary people; I consider myself very mature for my age, and I realize a decision such as this is big, but I think it's a huge part of expression) i'll be getting a tattoo from the Hey Jude lyrics.

"The movement you need is on your shoulder."

I'll be getting the word "movement" on the back of my shoulder, get it, get it? Haha!

I've become extremely attatched to the song over the past bit, and I've always intended to get a Beatles tattoo (numerous, actually) and I think this is the one I would love to have on me for the rest of my life.

Opinions? Suggestions? Any one else planning on going 'under the needle' so to speak?

skye said:What type of typeface are you thinking of for this tattoo?


I'm thinking some really nice handwritten script. Something legible, but classy- something I won't regret when I'm older.

I've seen some really nice cursive fonts out there in the tattoo world, 
so I think that'll be the route I'm going on.

I thought that would be best too. I do like this McCartney font though -> McCartney font. It's probably too chunky for a tattoo.

It's funny you should say that, Alissa. On the DM Beatles forum (http://www.dmbeatles.com/forum.....pic=7724.0) there's a thread about Beatles tattoos. On the third page someone says she's thinking of getting "The movement you need" on her shoulder. It's a nice idea.

I'd really like to get something related to Yellow Submarine. I have so many ties to that movie, it's the thing that got me into the band in the first place. Not sure what I'd do, but I know I want to do something. Smile
