Hi Palbicki, are you pleased with the tattoo? I remember hearing that the eagle in the Oval Office at the White House faces right in times of peace and left in times of war (or is it the other way around). :)

Cool i think go for it.
I want that polish eagle across my back. I have not found one on the few tattoo web sites I have checked .
But i'm still looking. I actually want one that will be filled inn with all the feathers . And not just an outline. I would love to find one that would be on my entire back .............

I think it's a really cool idea, and I plan on getting one when I go to Poland next summer. I can't wait to see what yous lokks like. I'm not sure if I want it on my upper back in the center, or on my chest over my heart.

Lets see those pics.

Are you gonna post any pictures, I'm really interested to see how it came out.

looks cool!

in the army here you'd get 'eire 32' tattoo'd on your arm.
in celtic font

similar to this.
AND of course the harp is popular and the celtic cross

32 counties of ireland etc

32pence being the cost of a stamp

(its gone now as we have the euro - but was cool)

What is Fisz's Eagle doing ? Why is it facing left? And what does "never summer" (no hot weather) mean?

Thank you.

My eagle wasn't a seal of any sort. It's a logo for a snowboard company Never Summer. I don't really dislike summer, but I do like very long winters :)

Te Bald Eagle now faces the olive branches(peace) in its claws, and AWAY from the arrows(war). Right claw has olive branches.

The Polish White Eagle
A thousand years ago, or maybe even more, there lived three brothers, Lech, Czech, and Rus. For many years they had been content in their villages, but the families grew larger and they needed more room to live.

All this talk of tattoos being great etc. Have you any idea how terrible they look when you get older. In the UK they are classed as tacky and only the people who are half witted do such dramatic things to their bodies. My husband is Polish and he cringes as what I have read out to him about your tattoos. Please think again - you cannot go back once it is done.

I agree. Tattoos are disgusting. I remember my ex telling me how he wants a tattoo on his chest while it was a bit spotty. Ewww gross!
