Stairway To Heaven Tattoo (HELP)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

To make this quick I'll cut out the complete story behind this (unless anyone would like to know) but I'm looking to get a full sleeve custom tattoo in reference to this song. Short story, it's the first ever song I learnt on guitar in week 1, requested by my father and I'd never heard the song before.

I'm probably going to have the guitar music on a stave in a wrapped  style all the way up my arm as the main focus but I don't want it to look too bare so I'm looking for ideas to implement as background images such as a songbird in a tree, etc.... I just don't know the history of the song well enough to come up with enough ideas to fill out my whole arm.

I don't really want the lyrics because it's a bit of a cliche track and it will leave some mystery about the tattoo. Also the tattoo will be black with shading, unless convinced otherwise.

Please share additional ideas?

Thanks in advance!

You're going to get your whole arm tattooed with a reference to a song that you don't know well enough to come up with your own ideas for?

It's the starting point of my entire musical background. I'm 100% happy with the plan, I just need some assistance.

Shouldn't you be speaking to tattoo artist, they are after all the experts.
