Being a fan of a huge franchise can be tough when you’re trying to decide what tattoo to get. Should you go with your favorite character, the quote you like best, or a symbol that jumped out at you? You’ll likely know it when you see it, but if you’re overwhelmed by options, make a list. Use some of those brainstorming tools we all learned in high school and college and start with a broad idea and then narrow it down.
For example, maybe the Star Wars film at the top of your list is The Empire Strikes Back. List all the elements you can think of from that film–tauntauns, AT-ATs, Cloud City, “I’m your father,” etc. Then, highlight the ones that especially speak to you and go from there. If you’re not having that gut feeling, this can help you focus.
That process didn’t necessarily happen with this awesome Imperial Probe Droid tattoo but maybe it did?
