The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Tattoo help.

    Looking to get the Polish Eagle tattooed sometime next week. I found something I know I can keep for the rest of my life and not regret. Not like my nationality will change right?

    Heres what it looks like. My big dilema is where to put it on my body, I was thinking right between the tricep and the elbow on the back of my arm. Maybe on my shoulder and maybe on my upper back. Any suggestions and/or ideas welcome.




    Something along those lines, haven't decided on color vs all black.

    I think the shoulder would hold that best.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    that would 'fit' well on the shoulder or middle of the top of your back right below the neck. I'm all about balance though, so if you plan on getting more, then shoulder...if this is it it HAS to be centered or I'd freak out.

    Side. I'm with Cirino though. If this is the only one you ever plan on getting put it in the middle of your back under the neck.

    I'm all about the symmetry.
    I had a dream the other night and my final tat for my left forearm came to me.

    Dude don't ask for opinions online. They may seem to be helpful at the time but the only person that has to live with it is you, decide 100% by yourself.

    I got that same tattoo on my shoulder in black and gray with very little white in some spots. Looks good. Only thing i wish i had was a little bit of red shading in it. It looked even better when i first got it done because it was all red from bein sore.

    If you have big forearms I would vote for there, but if you had smedium ones I would go for the shoulder.

    im pretty heavily tattooed an i have to agree if its gonna be ur only one the get it on your back or make it a real chest peice centered off your sternum or something. if you get it on one side of your body your gonna feel like your off balanced and need to get another. at least thats the boat im in. Also coming from someone who is tattooed very visible below my elbows make sure you think hard before going that route.
