I've always thought that larger tatoos were much better than small ones. If you're going to get something put on your body permanently, why not make it to where it's the first thing people see?
I lean towards small to medium tattoos myself. The current largest are my DayanFlowers, natch, which for anyone who hasn't seen them, take up most of my left collarbone/clavicle area. I plan on having the flowers themselves extended to run over my shoulder and maybe onto my back someday - sadly, not anytime soon. I have my entire lifetime to shell out money for tattoos, and right now, other priorities are just above and beyond. The Hello Kitty I plan on putting on my right shoulder should be a little smaller than those, the 'en' for my elbow will be the smallest I have yet, and I'm planning on having my dead people stars colored in. Originally, (aka now) they're black tipped with an army/olive green in the middle, but I'm starting to think it would be more appropriate and more in line with my overall look and intent to get them blackened. They'll also transition up towards the 'luck' symbol better that way.
Hand tattoos are my thing, bigtime. I love my hands. I've had compliments on them, they're the most used part of my body as far as expression goes..and I want them decorated. Most of high school was spent drawing on my hands - both palms and the backs - more for how it looked rather than something to do. Outer ear and leg tattoos sound good too, but I don't think I'd get anything above the thigh. Concentrating on the tops of my feet/ankles for aesthetic purposes is main on my list.
Hopefully when I'm done, I'll be sprinkled lightly with art rather than heavily saturated or totally without it. That's the goal! Woo, bodymods.
