Since i love this thread to death I figured you guys can help me help me with this issue.

I want a tetris piece tattoo. I thought of my ankle were a L shape can kinda wedge under the ankle bone. My ideal tattoo would be placed or wedged to look like it landed there properly.

I don't know any better way to describe it, but hopefully someone can clarify what i am trying to say.

But what i am trying to ask is, where on my body can this be done?

    You can get tatoos anywhere if thats what you're asking.

    If you're asking for a good place to do it, I've always liked the sides of the stomach (like under your rib cage).

    I can't think of any place immediatly that would make it look like the piece landed there, unless you got some sort of ground drawn in. Looking in the mirror the only place I can think of is the crease of the elbow, and thats a wierd place for a tatoo.

    You can put the triangle one upside down at the edge of your butt crack… that would be really funny….

    I thought the title said, "I want a terrorist tattoo."

    I was going to suggest against it. Just make sure to get it somewhere you can hide it if you plan on doing the corporate thing.

    Ankle is kind of gay to me - I don't know why. You could get a couple of pieces done on your back. Probably the easiest way to do it.

    Draw it on yourself with a pen. Take a picture of it. Put the picture in an envelope and open it 6 months to a year later. If you still want that tattoo, then get it.

    I am girl, I dunno if that still considers it gay since it is a feminine place to put it. but generally i am not a foot person.

    I realllly like the ideas of drawing it on myself and putting it in an envelope. hmm. I was just hoping someone would think of a place i didn't think of. The ass crack one did come up though..

    If there is a certain spot on your torso area your pants like to sit, perhaps make it seem like that is the "bottom" of the game.
    I suggest more than one piece for the best effect.

    hmm... if you only want one piece then you have a lot of options... shoulderblade, back of the neck, ankle, wrist, arm, belly-button area... pretty much anywhere. honestly i think the coolest place for a girl tattoo is on the waistline just to the right or left of center almost over the hip bone.

    i would suggest multiple pieces to get the full effect of it, unless you're dead set on just one piece... or maybe take the pieces and spell out something like "stacked" or something clever... i dunno haha, you could have some fun with it. i would highly suggest going to a professional parlor and consulting an artist. 99% of the time they'll have an idea to play with and present to you.

    Between your shoulders with some lines/shading suggesting "falling" might work too; like it's in motion. If you can't get it to "stack" anywhere.

    edit: Maybe one on your lowerback/ass area, then another higher up, in motion.

    I'd definately recommend getting the "s" shape or the "t" if you're only getting one piece. If you have to explain why a tatoo (or anything else in fact) is cool, then it isnt cool and those are the only two shapes which will immediately say "Tetris" to the casual observer.

    Didn't know you were female. Ankle seems popular on girls, though I don't know if it is the best place for this type of tattoo.

    The straight piece falling into the gap left by your big toe and your, um, pointer toe?

    There's a lot of places on the body that the straight piece could appear to be falling in to. I'm not gonna suggest them though...

    I really like that idea. And maybe on my right side or left. I am not too big on the slut stamp area. But I am consulting the tattoo artist tomorrow and throwing that idea out.

    the artist that my boyfriend and myself spoke too (he is planning on getting a tri force), said that the waist line was a lot better idea than the ankle one. He suggested on my left would be a good position. I am gonna do the L block and an S block. the L block on its side on the bottom of the waist like and an s block dropping. I should be getting it done next week and ill put up a pic.

    Not necessarily a great idea, unless he plans to always be employed somewhere that is totally cool with visible tattoos like that.

    That's not a cool thing to call tattoos on the small on the back. Not cool at all.
    :wags finger:


    As for the OP
    's tattoo, I really think it would look best if the waiting pieces made a gap that the falling piece would fit perfectly into.

    In the crease or around it? My brother has a tattoo just above the crease on each forearm, one says "Pura" and the other says "Vida."

    I personally think he's a retard regardless =P

    Nice tats on the both of you, i love 'em.

    And to a few of the above posters, "Tramp Stamp" is a term that encompasses all tattoos. Its original meaning was tramp as in hobo, not as in slut.

    And you'd be surprised how many jobs one can still get with hand tattoos. That wouldn't have been that bad of an idea. :)
