    No seriously, :erk:

    No, I don't think anyone else has read any thread at all with the 2-3 years lame thing going on all around it.

    Personally, I think The Roundhouse Tapes cd/dvd cover would make an awesome tattoo. The hooded face with the mask and the logo..... :)

    your right that would be good, and am now seriously considering it.
    but, i think i would need to know a bit more about the actual piece of art. If ya know what i mean.

    i couldnt just imprint it onto myself that easily.

    I was considering getting the 'O' as my first tattoo, but not sure where to put it. I know I don't want to go the tramp stamp route, but it needs to be someplace my students won't frequently see it.

    Yeah, the O is the only symbol I've really ever considered for a tattoo. But I don't have enough faith that they won't put out a shitty album EVENTUALLY, and then would I really want to see that logo every day?

    The 'O' could stand for anything.

    Besides, as my other half usually says, they could put out an album that's just a box with some shit in it and I'd still buy it, hah!

    If it happens, you just have to make another tatoo over the O where you could put the word "Old". And anyway, even if Opeth was going to made a shit album, what they've done until then is just genius.

    edit:

    buy an opeth box that is.

    Maybe they'd pay you for that.

    Just out of complete curiosity and I know how much these can vary depends on the tattoo artist himself. I am looking into getting an Opeth tattoo either tomorrow or Friday when I get paid and I'm wondering how much it cost ya'll who have already gotten one. Just wondering so i can see how much I can estimate. It's gonna be nothing big, gonna be the size of a notepad or just a bit bigger on my upper middle back and lower neck.

    Hmm, I got mine in Spain. It covers my shoulder in a typical kind of way. Cost me &#8364;100.

    Also, random google search gave me this.

    The prices for both of my tattoos were set by the size and complexity. On the Opeth one in Spain, the guy just kinda looked at it and figured out a price. On my second one, the guy used a transparent measuring paper kinda thing.

    Hope that helps! :kickass:

    Ya the same with me and my other 3 tattoos, the artist just looked at it and how I wanted it and gave me a price. Wasn't sure if someone could relate to the description i gave or not. All 3 of my tattoos were $80 each :)

    thanks for the help though

    It's just one of these things that you wouldn't want to get the cheapest price by any means necessary. Imagine looking at it for the first time and finding out he or she wrote something like "Watershat" on your ass. :lol:

    You generally pay $100/hr. That seems like base pay. Bigger name artists will charge more. Most I've paid is $130/hr, but it was well worth it.

    My "O" tattoo cost me $160 and took roughly an hour and a half.


    And do tip. A twenty is fine.

    That seems to be the going rate for the "O". I've gone to a few places around my house and all of them quoted about $160.
