I use Yahoo! Image search:

Find a couple that you like and bring it to the tattoo guys. They're talented and can help you out from just a few simple printouts.

Print out the logos take it to the tattoo artist and if he/she is a real artist they can bring it together and draw you out something. If they are whack and just copy over other artists work then do more research for an artist..:)

I didn't want to be the first one to say it, but I agree. That's like getting a Nintendo logo on your arm. Eventually, you'll wish you got something more meaningful.

if you're wanting to get the logos, skip the quote. throwing all that stuff in there will just look like one big mess. you should do one or the other. how long is the quote?? because if it is a long one, it'll be hard to find an artist that can put awesome detail with such small lettering. then when you get older they'll just bleed together and look awful.

Don't pick clothing lines either.

If your looking to rep "Mask"

Just get "Believe" tat'd on your sleeve and have the tat guy work around it with some tribal stuff or something.

The "Believe" is a good idea because it could have countless meanings.

I do like the little RNC logo that's on a lot of the Tapout gear now.

Any tattoo artist worth their ****, should be able to sit down with you and come up with some ideas that you'll love. Think of some of your favorite styles and moves and maybe teh designer can come up with some cool tribal style figures.

Get reccomendations from people that have Tats you like. Always go by word of mouth and never just pick a place cause it's convenient. Do your research and you'll find an artist that will give you something that you can wear with pride for the rest of your life (cause that's how long it will be there:)

Then perhaps you should consult him..

or perhaps not if you already mentioned it to him and he can't think of anything then he sucks and you should go somewhere else.

Maybe just go to an actual tattoo artist, tell them what you want and see what they can come up with. If you're in this for a sleeve, then you've already got a jist of what the cost could be.....so go for it.

You can tell any good tattoo artist what you want and they can make it happen, more so than a bunch of people on a Matt Hughes board can (no harm intended guys).
i have a guy i go to that does all my tats
After having read this......I seriously doubt the validity of the whole question. If you have a guy to go to that does all your tats, why are you asking everyone here?

Don't get the Tapout logo, but maybe some ink that's similar to some of the Tapout artwork.......

Just my two lincolns.

Later.

I like the idea of getting Tapout if it is a tribute to 'Mask', but I agree you'll regret getting the logo. You'll look like an entrance t-shirt!

You could get it written in Japanese or something cool. Try this translator - Icelandic Runic I thinks its called, it looks good. I just can't get a screenshot to show you.

Your tattoo artist would be your best bet.
