Depends on what you like and can live with. I couldn't go for lyrics personally, I am thinking about getting the FTHC cross though.

I wouldn't go for anything from The Road, that would just look silly :P.

Personally, I have 'Life is about love, last minutes and lost evenings, About fire in our bellies and furtive little feelings', 'Things didn't kill me but I don't feel stronger' and 'I Still Believe' all tattooed...

But there are loads more I'd like to get too.

I think that lyrics have more meaning, they have the possible interpretation of the words themselves, the meaning of that song to the individual as well as the reference to the man himself, Frank Turner.

Exactly. There are a ton of clever lyrics, but the ones that resonate and move you should be the ones you get. After all, although it's his work, it's your body. It should be for you.

Yeah although he did the writing, it was written to be enjoyed, if part of that means using the lyrics the mean something then in my opinion he has done his job in one way :D

That's why I chose the lyrics I did. And why one in particular is in Frank's handwriting. Same reason why I want some more from a couple from songs off TDH (lyrics or artwork).

might get a longer phrase rather than a line though, more words more meaning

I have 'no one gets remembered for the things they didn't do' tattooed on me.

But yeah, The Road? That's just stoopid! :lol:

In honor of this massive US/Canadian tour, we have been trying to do things to connect to one another across this ginormous continent. So one of the things is to get "tour" tattoos. FT wrote some words, and an anchor seemed like an appropriate symbol. This is mine:

I think I'd get "'Cause broken people can get better if they really want to".

I have 'Your shadow is with me wherever I go' written across my back, got it done shortly after my dad died.
