    ok ive been thinking about getting one done for ages, and i reckon ive decided what i want. i dont know if anyone's familiar with the "Scary Guy" design that metallica use:




    i think it was cliff burton who did it. but anyway. i was thinking about getting it on my forearm like so:


    but my mrs reckons thats too big. so what im asking is where else could i get it?

    The best advice I can give is dont get one.

    They are on you for life but if your 100% going for one make sure its right for you, think about it and go to good tattooist.

    Best wishes.

    Dunno of any places up there mate. I get all my work done in Leeds at the same studio, my left half sleeve is close to ben finished now and i'm working on my next piece at the moment. Its a montage of things that have inspired or motivated musically be it album cover pictures, logos, lyrics, cd designs anything really. Should be getting my arse into gear and getting something onto paper pretty soon once i have spoken to an artist i know.
    If the metallica one is the one you really want, find a good artist who will do a good job and also work in some cool background so it doesn't look abit bare around it.

    I would go for this, without the Metallica logo. Tell the tattooist to go wild in the background so it isn't so plain.
