Hi! :) I've never gotten a tattoo before, but I think I've finally come up with something I want:

May I never be complete.
May I never be content.
May I never be perfect.

(It's a quote from the book Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk.) I'm having a hard time coming up with placement and font ideas. I was thinking of getting it on my arm, but I'm not sure where. For the font, I don't want it to look perfect and I was wondering if it's possible to get tattoos in handwriting. Like is it possible to write something in your own handwriting and have the artist tattoo it on? (I really am a newb! I'm sorry haha!) Any advice you might have about the placement or font would be super helpful! Thank you so much!

How old are you?
Given you have a pic of Robert Smith on your profile, I will guess over...30?
Why not incorporate that text into some awesome design?

I have a tattoo in the handwriting of King Richard III. (I have a photo of it amongst my Mods on here). As long as it can be traced and copied then the tattooist could do it in you own hand writing.

@JClaude I'd never thought about incorporating the text into a design before, that's an awesome idea. Thanks for that! Oh, and I'm 19. :)

@Keiran1980 Thanks for letting me know! Appreciate it! :)
