Tattoo Ideas / Quotes
I'm getting a tattoo, and it's going to be some sort of symbol for being a True Alpha Male. I was thinking of getting a quote (in symbolic writing).
I am trying to find some good Alpha Male quotes. Any suggestions out there? Or any good websites that would have good alpha quotes from alpha male characters (either real or fictional like in movies)?
The biggest traits I consider a true alpha male to have, aside from being a leader, successful, and charismatic are:
1) Risking taking in spite of fear. Going for what he wants
2) Not caring what others think or seeking external validation
3) Doesnt take life too seriously and enjoys the journey of life.
ALSO, IF ANYONE HAS A GOOD IDEA FOR A SYMBOL FOR THE ALPHA MALE THAT IS NOT A QUOTE, I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR NEW SUGGESTIONS OR IDEAS!

I would probably would go with something symbolic like uh...A king's name or greek god or something strong.
My friend literally copied stevo's idea and put "your Name" on his ass. lol it is funny.

Tattoos are something that you really need to do on your own. It's permanent, so I'd try to go for something very meaningful to you that you won't regret at all. Ask yourself, are you really going to want some cheesy ass line tattooed onto your skin in 5 years? 10 years? Never get a tattoo simply to 'impress' or get something generic to be bad ass about it. IMO that's the number one most douchey thing you can do to your appearance.
But if your heart is set on it, I'd suggest staying away from Celtic writing and especially Tribal ANYTHING. Both are so played out its ridiculous. I'd go for symbology rather then just a quote. Then you have an interesting DHV story to go along with it when someone asks you about the tattoo, rather then them just reading the words and making their own assumptions.

How about "tool", or "trend follower", or "trying to fit in".
Ransom said it best. Get it for YOURSELF, not to impress people you haven't met.
PS. You think a "true alpha male" needs some symbol emblemized on his body to show himself he's a "true alpha male"?

You dont need to have some deep philosophical meaning to your tattoos. Do you think people get it beacuse it has some deep meaning? They get it because it looks cool. All that philosohpical "meaing" is BS, backwards rationalization once they decided it looks cool. If they wanted to preserve something meaningful they can draw a tatoo on their journal and read it. People get tattoos because it's cool to them just like peole get earrings to look cool.
Obviously think of the consquences for how others might view you and whatnot.

I like sodap's symbol. But there's no way I'm fucking up my body with a tattoo.

Ya pretty much what ransom was what I'm thinking.
A tattoo should have some significance to you if you decide to get one. One of my good friends has a tattoo but he has his for his father who passed away. Your going to want something that you don't mind seeing daily and sometimes will bring back good memories or something.
Now since your posting on an internet forum on what tattoo you think you should get, it means you have nothing of real value to get tattood and you are just looking to get one.
A tattoo with and alpha male symbol or what not will not make you an alpha male.
A girl will not think your an alpha male if you have a tattoo.
This seems similar to if you had got one of those tribal band tattoos in the 90's. I'm sure the majority of people that have those regret it. And no it did not get them laid.
If your an alpha male you don't need a tattoo to prove it.
