    Sorry to hear about your brother pal.

    I'm not even sure if this is a Latin font, but that saying looks awesome in the attached font. The bigger the better.

    get your brother to either write it on paper for you and have it done in his hand or get him a marker and let him write it straight on and then get it inked over

    just a thought

    I thought you were looking for something like this? Like Metallicas "Justice For All" feel to it?

    Tommy Lee did it first I think and a whole load of rockers followed suit. I saw him ranting about people copying off him on tv. I'd be quite honoured to be honest.

    the Cronus Font looks ace, ive got a booking on saturday at the Skin Graffeti on rochdale road in Bury, full of potheads ive been told but good LOL. inside of my forearm, people have told me its one of the worst places to do it as it too sensitive or summat, is this true? im not bothered about a little pain but dont wanna be biting on to my pillow when there doin it .

    Would i just take a copy of that Font to the guys at the place and they will do the rest i presume? do they need a full alphabet of the FONT?
    sorry im very new to this so please mind my stupidness on this subject.

    Just about everywhere you get a tattoo, someone who already has one there says "thats the worse place to get it done I was told"...

    Truth is, its different for different people. I had my arm done and didnt feel it at all - I had my ribs done, and felt it like buggery.

    To be honest, I think its all a big fuss, it doesnt really hurt that much anywhere you get it done.

    Take a nice clear print out at the correct size of the font you want. Most tattooist's have a machine to resize images but you never know.

    With regards to pain everyone is different. I suffered a bit on my first tattoo but eventually got used to the pain. One tip I will give is don't keep asking the tattooist "how much longer?" or "are you nearly done?" He will drive that needle into your arm and hurt you if you do, I guarantee it. Be relaxed and take along a sugary drink if they will allow it. Don't drink the night before as your blood will piss out and a bleeder is hard to tattoo as the ink doesn't go in correctly.

    Good luck and post a picture when you have had it done and cleaned.
