Advice Needed: Should I get a Twilight Tattoo?
Well THIS is a first. I thought we had seen everything, heard everything & been asked anything, but apparently not. We got this e-mail the other day from an LTT reader & it’s too good not to share:
To whom it may concern,
This probably is a weird email. But since the last movie was released, I have been considering on getting a Twilight related tattoo. But after seeing that post with the lady with the giant-ass back tattoo (and hint of an ass crack), I know I don’t want to royally screw up on the tattoo lest I want to be made a laughing stock of the Internet.
I am just asking other Twihards what they think of this idea and I want to shoot it to you guys since I love your blog. The Twilight tattoo I was thinking of is just this somewhere on my arm:
Esme waited ten years.
So can you.
Those seven words hold a lot of personal meaning for me, but since this is a Twilight tattoo we’re talking about I just need to see what my fellow Twihards think before I permanently ink it. So far I’ve been writing this phrase on my arm and no questions or alarms have been raised but anything can happen after getting said tattoo.
So what do you guys think?
My first thought was— how BIG will this be? What FONT will it be in? Will Edward’s face be ANYWHERE near it? Because big tattoos in ugly fonts having ANYTHING to do with Edward Cullen or Rob Pattinson are a no-no. So I asked her. And she sent me more info:
I know I want this tattoo to be small. (I am going into teaching so this tattoo has to be in a place I can easily cover up with a jacket sleeve or a large cuff bracelet.) I chose my arm because I have been writing this phrase on my arm with a pen for the last year and I want it to be where I can look down and see it.I had a friend suggest I put the words in French so it would look fancier and cut down on the chances of me being harassed for getting a Twilight tattoo. (I am also considering Italiano as the language since the language has some significance in the books. )As for what the quote means, it’s something I wrote. Esme is my favourite character in the Twilight Saga (yes, I cried when THAT scene happened because I didn’t know it was a vision). I’ve also had a really difficult love life and I’ve panicked over the fear of being alone forever without never finding my soul mate. Starting last year, I started writing “Esme waited ten years. So can you.” on my arm as a way to remind myself that I will find love one day. It just takes a long time.
