Well, I'm officially marked for life!  I got a tattoo of Queen's phoenix today.  I'm very happy with it!

Nope, I wasn't really interested in getting the whole crest.  I thought that the phoenix resembles enough of Queen, and especially Freddie Mercury, on its own.  Besides, I didn't just want the phoenix because it was Queen's phoenix -- I wanted something on me that held depth and purity, something that also had meaning.  As we all know, the phoenix is a mythological creature that is born from its own ashes; it represents eternal life.  I thought that was pretty cool.  On a side note, I wouldn't dismiss the idea of incorporating the entire crest one day.  We'll see!  But I'm happy with what I've got now!

The wings have turned out great. Not that the beak is bad, but I didn't like the beak on the original version either. Also, I'm wondering, if you don't mind, why is the tattoo on the left side of your upper back? Wouldn't it look better at the center? Are you planning to get another tattoo next to it?[img=/images/smiley/msn/thumbs_up.gif][/img]

At first I thought of getting it in the center, but the more I thought about it the more I didn't like the idea.  To me, it works wonderfully as a shoulder piece -- and yeah, one day I might get something on the other side.  For some reason, I can't see myself stopping now -- this might have turned into an addiction.
