Be Happy Tattoo by pikku-hiiri Be Happy Tattoo by pikku-hiiri
ok... a little help is needed please! with or without writing? bearing in mind that the writing is just what i doodled on, me thinks i'd ask the tattoo artist to improve on it for me!

this whole tattoo has a lot of meaning to me, which i'll probably explain when i put a picture of the real deal up... the writing especially is important, but has been added as an after thought and i'm not sure if it fits... hence why i'd like some opinions please! it's going to go on the inside of my wrist/forearm

credit for the feather goes to :iconchibinezu: :)

Hey you :-) long time no talk... I'd keep the writing, as someone said before, it adds a personal touch, and I love how you've done it (the font). I'm interested to know what this one means to you, and to see it done!

hellooo... indeed it has been a long time, hows it going?
ai, i have another design now, which still has the writing, but in a more subtle position, although i'm not sure if it would be too small for the tattooist to do so i'm keeping the other as a back up!
as for what it meeeeans... well... i've spent the last 3 months or so studying in france, and i've hated every second of it, so, i've decided to go home next week, missing the last 8 weeks, because i'm just not happy... the fleur-de-lis obviously represents france, i'm pretty sure that it also is symbolic of flames, which i love... i've always seen feathers as symbolising freedom, i've also *always* wanted a feather tattoo... and finally, "be happy" is something my dad says to me all the time, it's the only thing he's ever really asked of me.
there ya go... positively loaded with personal meaning :)

That's awesome, I love tattoos that have meaning. I have one on my back that I drew the centre, and above the trinity knot that I drew is my Irish family name McCann. I have a shamrock also, but that's just because I'm Irish :-P I want to get the Om symbol soon to remind myself and those around me of my lifestyle and the peace it brings me.

I know what you mean about be happy... That's my only search in life... I found it here in England and am trying to find out how to stay here for the rest of my life. Any hints? lol

Hey, I think it's awesome that you're using my design and I can't wait to see it on skin ^_^

Personally I think the writing looks good but only when the design is put horizontally so it makes it easier to read.. but unfortunately then the fleur-de-lis(?) is the wrong way round.
I do love the fleur-de-lis a lot more than the weird eye/egg thing I had there ^_^

Where do you plan to be putting this on yourself?

Then if it's on your forearm I think you should keep the writing as is. It means you've added your own personal touch to the whole thing with your own handwriting there and cause you can present it to be people both in vertical and horizontal it removes any problems I saw with it before really. ^____^
