    How stupid would this tattoo be?

    My mother sent me a Mormon genealogy that was for my aunt (my dad's closest female sibling). It gave me some answers, about whether Chesser was Cheshire (it was), and it goes back to the 16th century. One of the things it shows is that I have a strong paternal ancestor born on the Isle of Skye from the Clan Donald (there is about a hundred years of paternal side mixing in Scotland and England, which seems fascinating!). Of course, Donald is the largest, so membership might not be that important. I have a strong affinity for Scotland, and I had thought that if I found out I had Scottish ancestry that I'd get a crest tattoo. Would this be in poor taste?

    IMO when it comes to ink - YOU have to live with it. At the end of the day, only your opinion matters...

    I'm super happy with the idea. I don't want to get ink that disrespects those I claim as ancestors, however.

    Who cares? She married a fat piece of crap, and she has ink herself.

    Upper left forearm. It would never be seen in an environment where it matters.

    I have my Scottish crest and motto. Can't go wrong with family ancestry.

    Personally i think it depends how far back you are talking.If it is great,great,great,great grandfather stuff i find it a bit of a stretch .In the end nobody is going to be offended and its your skin and your choice so if it makes you happy go for it.As far as I am concerned the more Scots the better and our quest for global domination grows stronger.I wouldnt start claiming you are the son of Donald though and asserting ownership of the Golden arches.
