    Hey guys, so I'm thinking about getting my first tat. I wanted it to be an owl for wisdom, prudence, and balance, and I picked two out. Which do you like better?

    I think I like the first more, but with the second one's ears/horns. Also, where would you suggest I put it? I was thinking upper hip or shoulder

    Have the artist replace the 1st ones horns with the 2nd ones... it's very easy to request and would take very little time for him/her to do.

    Also, hip is so goddamn overdone and not even sexy on most guys. Granted you have the apollo belt and what not, so it wouldn't be "bad" neccessarily, but do something not every trendy gay man does.
    Above the upper right shoulder blade sounds good, however the design branches off on the wings. If you wanted to add on in the future, I'd say middle of your back, about 8-10 inches down from the end of your bottom hairline.

    Now I'm thinking middle of the back is much more practical.

    Because this would be permanent and I'm sort of a bastard, I would tell you to get the stupider looking one...
    ...but they both look incredibly the same.

    If you're asking this question you really shouldn't get it done.

    No lower back(tramp stamp) or hip, those are the worst places on a guy. Between the shoulder blades would look so much better

    I like the first one, but with the second one's ears.

    Put it on the back of one of your shoulders. I like that spot for tattoos.

    Looks like one of the Angry Birds after it hits a block of ice.

    For once I'd like to see a guy get a tattoo of a nice python or anaconda snake, not some hissing venom-type with large fangs. And god please stop getting scorpions people.

    I prefer the first owl as is, placed on the outer upper arm.

    The second one to me looks a little bit feminine with the curves and swirls.. but as far as location goes I think this sums it up nicely icon_lol.gif

    Hazardous,
    In my opinion, I don't care for either of your designs. But if that is your definite choice, the 1st owl looks best.

    Check the designs out from TattooFinder.com. They can't be copied and pasted here because they are Copyrighted. There are a total of 30 owls that come up when you do the search.

    Designs you may like from that search are listed below.

    Where to locate it on your body? If it's more personal, the hip would be best. If you want everybody to see it...definitely the shoulder.

    Thanks for the input guys.

    TrevorMark- For the hip idea I meant more closer to the back, not anywhere near my abs, kinda right above the top of the pelvis.

    GwgTrunks- I don't think it is an unreasonable question, it's not like im starting from nowhere, I have most of it figured out.

    I should also add I'm not planning on making it very big. Pretty much just how large it is on the screen, so I would have to put it on an appropriate area of skin, which leaves out the middle of my back.
