Default iideas for chest - help please

Well im starting to consider a piece for my chest but I seem to be so stumped for ideas.

I think there are certain designs that just sit well in that area such as hearts with wings etc and I want something that looks classic, has a nice shape to it.

And I know I can have anything I want but I want something that looks good with that placement.

I currently have a diamond in the centre of my chest and considered giving it a crown and some wings or getting some scrolls around it but then I get stuck!! Lame

I saw a lovely sweets chest piece in a mag a while ago (cant remember if it was sd or tt) that was lovely but I dont seem to be able to come up with something thats the right mixture of quirky and classic (if that exists)

And Im not asking for someone to pick my tattoo for me, just maybe a push in the right direction??

Theres no harm in getting ideas from the knowledgable on here, it gives you a greater scope to decide on

I would say pick your artist, whos style you like and give them the same brief and let them come up with a design for you. They would prefer to have a free reign then going on an exact brief from you, and if you like there style of work there is a good chance you would like what ever they come up with for you.

If you don't know exactly what you want, I would strongly advise waiting. Your chest is a VERY visible area, even if you don't feel like it is. You will see it every time you look in the mirror, and if you end up with something you don't 100% love, you will never be happy with it.

I'd have to second CherryGhost. If you're not sure what you want, then you should wait. The right inspiration will come along eventually. I put my Chest off for two years till i was absolutely certain i was ready, and even after waiting that long i still wasn't prepared for just how much of a reaction it garners.

I've wanted a chest piece since I was 18, and it's still bare. I'm in no hurry - I want the best artist for the job to do it, when I finally decide on what I want.

I'd agree with the others. Wait, keep looking for ideas maybe build on the ideas you have already. Something will come to you.
I have decide on the main image I would like on my chest and the artist I will get to do it but i'm still going to sit on the idea for a while and check its what I want.

I don't normally mull over tattoo ideas for to long but the chest is so visable I want mine to be right.

Just to throw some ideas in, how about more jewels like rings and tiaras? Rather than the sweets thing but similar idea....
