    My brother in law is a tattoo artist, and a really good one at that. He said that he would do my tattoos for free if I ever decide to get one.

    Well, I think that I have decided that I want to do not 1, but 2. My idea is this....
    On my left deltoid, the autobot log with the words "One shall stand" underneath it. On my right deltoid, the decpticon logo with the words "One shall fall" underneath it.

    If it was just the logos I'd say go for the medial, but with the text I think it would work really well on the front, kind of like the big stars you see a lot of people having done arbitrarily, as then it would read left to right as well. Just my opinion. Take a photo of yourself and get someone to photoshop a few demos.

    I have a similar idea, but under my Autobot logo I want "PROTECT" and under the decepticon, "DESTROY"

    Not a huge tattoo fan, in all honesty, BUT if I were getting any, I would go with the second set: great idea! Good luck!

    Yeah, I'm gonna post some pics of my shoulders so people can ps them onto me. Also, all the edges, inside and out will be outlined in black, and the decepticon logo will be purple, not black as it looks in the pics.

    I kind of think if you go the second route, it'd look snazzy to up the logos just a bit, and have them in a more realistic kind of way, like metal and such. That way you could pull off a kind of English/Cybertronian hybrid with the text--if that makes any sense?

    Otherwise, if you keep the logos simple and more traditional, I'd go with the first option--that way you can get the letters to be more blocky and like the cartoon.

    And so I guess it's just going to be what you prefer. Maybe sit down and really think about which series you enjoy most, and then go in that direction; see if you want to be serious or campy and such. Or, play off the strong points of the artist involved, since it's someone you know, personally.

    Hey, that's a good idea. The movie robots are my favorite, so maybe I should make the logos look like those logos instead.

    Those would look really good, especially if you wanted to eventually do something more with them--I've seen some really good ones, where people build around more realistic-looking logos. Also, you could lift something off of a specific robot, like if you liked Ratchet a lot, you could do his whole ambulance logo--or someone like Barricade for the "punish and enslave" bit.

    When I got mine, I was pretty sure what I wanted, but I still took another week to think and really think about it. There's just so many different versions, I mean. (Subtle differences, but differences nonetheless.)

    And so even though it's very Captain Obvious stuff, I'd also recommend getting several very accurate print-outs of exactly what you want, and then play around with them just a bit. Decide if you want things out-lined or left open, I mean. Color, or black-and-white or grey. Those kinds of things. (Or, that could just be me, as I tend to very much like to look at details.)

    Yeah, I decided tonight that I want to have the text have the 3d effect, like the movie logo.

    I'm a huge fan of body art and have several myself including a G1 Autobot logo. I love your ideas and think they will look great. Just remember that once you get your first on you will soon get more cause they are really addictive.

    I'd get the scene with Optimus giving Megs the double fisted uppercut

    or Hot Rod inside of Unicron holding the Matrix over his head.
