Title: "Tattoo-worthy" lyrics
Post by: Fambo Number Mive on January 06, 2021, 09:22:54 AM
I am not a songwriter, but I like the idea of artists aspiring to have people tattoo their lyrics on their arms, like Holly Humberstone does:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-55543585

Do any of you have song lyrics tattooed on you? And if you don't and had to have a song lyric tattooed on you, what would it be?

I'm still debating what lyrics I would choose.

Apologies if this is more of a GB topic.

I've considered getting a Mountain Goats tattoo with "just stay alive" but then I realised that is probably wank and also I probably won't just stay alive, i'll also die at some point, rendering the tattoo a lie that will stay on my body beyond the grave and according to arcane Jewish scripture I will turn into some sort of golem. I would hate that.

I’ve always vaguely had a couple of tattoo ideas in mind - if I ever go under the needle it’ll definitely be the Ween “Boognish” that gets done first - one of them being “It takes guts to be gentle and kind”. One of the most powerful and snappy messages I’ve ever heard in a song and words that everyone should try to live by every day.

Lock the thread.

I would have

"And our good times start and end without dollar one to spend
But how much baby do we really need?"

It'd have to be massive as tattoo people don't like doing simple fonts.

Aye, give it the high contrast treatment and colourise the whole thing orange, chop the image in half and leave the other half completely white except for a lovely typeface which reads:

Time for Beans on Tod!

Winner.

The Mountain Goats have so many lyrics that would make for great tattoos. I'm probably going to go for "I loved you before I even knew what love was like" with tear drops between each word, but at either end a bleeding heart, I'll have it done on my forehead and do my utmost to not get sent to prison.

Could be worse—could have been tab. Also, depends on which solo. Most would be grave, but there’s a couple of good melodic ones. (https://youtu.be/5yhQyceJ37w?t=5m36s)

Definitely something by The Genitals.

Probably from the song Gash Pipe:

'I am the cobra with the greasy wiggle
(Watch me go now)
(Watch me go)'


I want it on my face, in white ink (to impress the ladies, I admit).

They are my favourite band. I have all of their releases. Stored.

FUCK. I actually had that typed out but changed my mind and made the dumb Mountain Goats post. When Jacqui Abbott sings "in me" on her own at the end, it's before her voices has really come into its own but her delivery is so emotional. Miaow is such a great album.

Gotta be sure it's from someone who's not likely to be revealed as a nonce/sexual predator in the future. A former flatmate was in the unfortunate position of having tattoo quotes on her from both Michael Jackson, and also lines from a Woody Allen film.

Might as well add a bit of Glitter in there for a hat trick. "I'M THE LEADER" or "IT'S GOOD TO BE BACK" in swooping cursive could easily be passed off as typical vague worthy Instagram-ready millennial affirmations.

I’ll add - I think the majority of words/phrases/lyrics aren’t great tattoos. Mine are covered up and line drawings so they’ll never get me #canceled.
