Question rememberance tattoo, 11th hour of the 11th day on the 11th minute...opinions please!

Hey guys and gals! I have had an idea for something and would like to hear some of your feedback on it. I am very passionate about the major wars that have been faught, and the people that have died in them. I was flicking through my diary the other day and i noticed that this year, on the 11th of november, the date will be 11/11/11...as most of you (should) know, this date marks the end of the first world war, and is used for us all to remeber the glorious dead, that faught and died in both the major conflicts...It gave me a great idea, i would like to do a tatttoo to symbolise the importance of remembering the people who died for us, to be able to get tattooed, speak our minds on forums like this and live in a free country. I was wondering what you lot thought of this idea? I was hoping that i could maybe run a competition to win the tattoo, with all the proceeds going to a charity, like help for heroes? But the main thing is that it would symbolise the importance of remebering what happened so it never happens again! Im a little worried though, as i feel that it is going to be a hard thing to run a competition for! Because the subject matter is fixed, could that narrow down the people who would potentially get this type of tattoo? Even if anyone knows someone who, would maybe want this tattoo, and i would donate the proceeds plus a little extra to a charity. Im a little stuck really as to how to go about it so if anyone has any good ideas then i would love to hear them! Thanks for reading

Regards Ryan @ Royal Owl Tattoo Studio, Nantwich, Cheshire,

just a thought but how about putting 11 rememberence poppys on 11 people...you could get 11 artists involved doing some nice realistic ones or in a a variety of styles.

Its always nice to hear about charity tattoo days...nice job ryan

thats a pretty wicked idea! I did want to do a poppy in their somewhere, it would be amazing if i could get people on board! It will take some arranging tho! Im just worried about who would be prepared to have them done! Im working the help for heroes show so i might be able to get some help from those guys!

you can put me down for one help for heroes is a pretty big charity and with a little P.R i think you could easily get 11 people who'd want one especially with some quality artists on board...I'm sure others reading thread over the next few days will give you some more food for thought.
Great cause

i have tattooed many memorial tattoos on folk here.
1st and 2nd world war,and other wars iraq,afganistan,and even falklands.
pride in your armed forces is good....they put their lives on the line for us.
remembering those fallen in war is commendable.

personally i dont have one of these type tattoos...but have thought about it many times.
my dad fought in WW2 in the R.A.F.
the stories told would make your hair curl.

it was tough times then.!

WE WILL REMEMBER THEM....LEST WE FORGET.

read a nice sentiment on blokes tattoo in london.?

a poppy,and these words scripted with curly queues.

THEIR NAME LIVETH FOR EVERMORE...nothing too intrcate,but looked real nice,the poppy was simple too like the ones you buy for poppy day.?not realistic..realism....?if you know what i mean.?
