Default Foos tattoo ideas?

Hey guys, first post.

I'm looking to get a tattoo in the near future, and I really want a Foo one.
I want to get some lyrics on my wrist, but I want to limit it to 2/3 words, I'm having some trouble finding anything that fits nicely.

I was thinking maybe "One by One", but i'd love to hear some ideas before choosing it. Can anyone think of anything that would work?

Also, sorry if this isn't posted in the right place. Still finding my way around.

Thanks!

Good luck. All my thoughts were a minimum of 4/5 words

If you're not sure, don't do it. A tattoo is permanent (obviously) and shouldn't be done just because you think you want one. Find something you really like and take plenty of time to decide. You don't want to end up with a meaningless lyric on your body that after time you realise means very little to you.

Hi welcome to the board!
If you cant think of anything then just wait, I couldnt decide on what to get when I first decided to get a foo tattoo and eventually Times Like These became very meaningful to me so I got that, just wait. Or just get the FF logo or something.

I did think about lyrics, but I couldn't decide which ones I liked the most, so I decided to get the bands logo on my shoulder.

Were you thinking about getting something pretty or just a cool lyric?

I have the very original logo.
Here it is the day I got it. Almost 5 years ago. Jesus.

here is a very long thread that you may want to look at---it's so old that some of the photo links aren't good anymore.

my two cents--make it your own, do it in a font you really like, get ideas from other people but make it yours in the end.

I've been meaning to get one for a while, but I don't just want the FF, I want more of an original design that will look rad enough on it's own merit. Because of that, it wasn't my first, and I will probably get a few before I get round to it. Just think about it at your own pace, if you can't think of an idea but want a tattoo, just get something else

I have 2 Foo tattoo's with a third in the pipeline (funnily enough lyrics for the first time) but make sure you really REALLY want it before making the decision.

As for lyrics, how about "Bullshit, No Shit".

I love foos but i'm scared of tattooing something band-related, i could still come up and hate them in the future, you never know.
But i'm getting a tattoo sooner or later, music related (i got place and logo, lack courage)

As for the three-words lyrics:
- fingernails are pretty
- born to resist
- never wanna leave / never say goodbye
- same old story

"Time will turn us into statues eventually" would be pretty damn nice to tattoo.

Although it's more than three words...
