Ideas for a Lightning tattoo

I'm thinking of getting a Lightning tattoo and i need ideas, despite what you may think of tattoos. I haven't seen many good sports team tattoos so i need help.

Victory stripes in your arm pits would be the ultimate win sir.

On a serious note: How about the primary or the secondary logo? I think bassassin (and other HFB users) had the main logo done.

I have a simple primary logo on my shoulder mainly because I wanted to know what a tattoo felt like.

As for ideas victory stripes in the armpits sound amazing.

I, at one point, was going to get the old logo. Then they changed the logo. And everything else about the team. I say don't get just a logo (unless it is specific to an event, like winning the cup). Stuff changes too often. I already have enough tattoos that are dated. I still want a Lightning tattoo, but I hate the new logo. You could do something like a goalie mask (I don't mean necessarily getting an actual goalie mask tattoo; but the art that is often on a goalie mask) with Lightning and other regional stuff.

It depends what you are looking for though. I like the current logo as a tattoo because it is pretty simple and just one bold colour.

I get that it will change, but i'm not really fussed.

To each his/her own. I was assuming that this may me the person's first tattoo, and was just offering insight from my experience of getting tattoos that I am unhappy with. If you like the logo, that's great if that is what you want to get. I was saying if you want to get a logo, that if you get the old one with the Stanley Cup years or something, that logo wouldn't change because it was referring to a specific event. The way the Tampa forum is going these days though, maybe a person wouldn't want to remember the cup team because Marty was on the team. Maybe you would want to get Calvin pissing on Marty (or 26) or something. There's an idea for a forum bumper sticker for you some of you guys. Calvin pissing on 26. I wonder if anyone has come up with that idea yet.

If you want a logo, get a logo. I know some of you guys have logos already, it was not my intention to diss your tattoos.

Just talk to the artist that you're going to get it done from

make sure to get something original, not just a stamp of the logo because that's dated and not really unique.

tattoo artists are really talented and they can draw you up something magnificent. Tell them you want it to be something to do with the lightning and get a dialogue going on. They'll draw up some drafts and you can criticize them for things you want changed then ultimately you get a unique tattoo that looks a lot more badass than a dated team logo.
