I'm stuck and would appreciate your opinions.
Warning for nekkid sketched pics! (So I'm not reported to mods and given more infractions.)

Idea F:
A solid mark of a wolf pawn on my chest.

Idea U:
My surname in runes on the "bottom" side of the forearm.
Thick, simplified (short-twig) runes sharing the "base twig".
It would look pretty much like this, though I changed some runes because my surname is so unique and thus secret. :o
A con with this tattoo would be that it's visible when wearing short-sleaved shirts... But yeah, vote for whichever would look best.

Idea Ţ:
Mađr rune covering my back. Probably not as thick as on the picture, but as widespread.

Thanks for helping!

They all look just as good as each other, but I would go for option number two.

Idea U its quite similar to what i want only on a different spot.

I'm going to bump this, hoping the lack of votes is because this was posted shortly before the merge and hasn't been very noticed. :)

So far it looks like “idea U” is most popular.

But, the choice or decision is really up to you…
Overall, based on these three options, apart from how they “look” or the degree of visibility when clothed, it would essentially depend on:

how much time you have available to have the work done,
how much needlework you are personally willing to endure (for that time period),
how large an area (and where on your body) you are willing to expose to risk of infection or other complication…

Where do you want it?

On the top of my back as part of an bigger tattoo i also want to put the coats of arms from my city,familly and some other symbols related to me in it.

Go with Idea U, unfortunately the paw print can mean something else (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bear_community) entirely.

The second option is a nice tattoo, but I don't advise anyone to get tattoos that can't be easily covered up by a short sleeve shirt; doing so can severely limit you career options. I do like the gigantic Algiz rune though.

Well, first off, the ravens are Hugin and Munin, at least in Anglicized form.

Here are some pictures:



The runes on the above one could be changed.
