    Ok, so i've decided I wanted to get a tattoo. I'm gonna get it just below the bottom of my neck , and I don't want it to be too big.

    As I like tennis so much, I guess I want a tattoo related to tennis in some way.

    Put forward your ideas, much appreciated.

    I think YOU should probably think of the design, since it is YOU that will have that dumb thing on the back of your neck for the rest of your life.

    But if you really want my suggestion...

    I would get something that you want because it's "your" body. I have two tattooes and they both mean different things to me but are very important to "me." Hope that helps.

    As much as I love tennis, I wouldn't get a tattoo related to tennis.

    I'm sorry, I just had to look it up...

    From Wikipedia:

    Bumblebee myths

    The flight of the bumblebee


    According to 20th century folklore, the laws of aerodynamics prove that the bumblebee should be incapable of flight, as it does not have the capacity (in terms of wing size or beat per second) to achieve flight with the degree of wing loading necessary. Not being aware of scientists 'proving' it cannot fly, the bumblebee succeeds under "the power of its own arrogance" (McFadden et. al. 2007). The origin of this myth has been difficult to pin down with any certainty. John McMasters recounted an anecdote about an unnamed Swiss aerodynamicist at a dinner party who performed some rough calculations and concluded, presumably in jest, that according to the equations, bumblebees cannot fly. In later years McMasters has backed away from this origin, suggesting that there could be multiple sources, and that the earliest he has found was a reference in the 1934 French book Le vol des insectes by M. Magnan. Magnan is reported to have written that he and a Mr. Saint-Lague had applied the equations of air resistance to insects and found that their flight was impossible, but that "One shouldn't be surprised that the results of the calculations don't square with reality".

    It is believed that the calculations which purported to show that bumblebees cannot fly are based upon a simplified linear treatment of oscillating aerofoils. The method assumes small amplitude oscillations without flow separation. This ignores the effect of dynamic stall, an airflow separation inducing a large vortex above the wing, which briefly produces several times the lift of the aerofoil in regular flight. More sophisticated aerodynamic analysis shows that the bumblebee can fly because its wings encounter dynamic stall in every oscillation cycle.


    It's still a pretty cool signature though


    And back on topic how about something tennis related, like a tennis racquet, some balls or Maria Sharapova
