Little Shop of Horrors Tattoos:

title
I'm paying tribute to my favorite musical with a tattoo...probably (my mom's still not completely sure).

I have no idea what to do. It just has to be related to LSOH. Please help.

I want it to have as little to do with the plant as possible, because I don't like how people think the plant is what the show is about. To me, it's about Seymour's descent. I want something related to that part of the story. ...But I can't show a picture of the original off-Broadway actors, because they're unrecognizable.. And I can't show a picture of the movie actors, because I personally did not enjoy it for reasons I will not go into.

Help?

[up] Maybe you can do the broadway revival actors. They're not completely unrecognizable. I also think you shouldn't exclude the plant just yet, because Seymour's descent has so much to do with the plant.

I know. The plant has EVERYTHING to do with what happens to Seymour, but most people leave the show thinking it was about a funny plant who eats people "and stuff". They generally forget the fact that Seymour killed people.

I don't want to encourage this.

Problem is, being a stage production, the plant is the only thing in the show with a consistent appearance.

I know. It's quite the dilemma. Maybe going with the plant WOULD be okay as long as I never call Little Shop of Horrors a show about a man-eating plant. The plant is symbolic, and it makes me upset when people don't get this.

It's easy, mmkay?
Not the best example. More like

FAUST IS ABOUT A DEVIL
At first I didn't realize I needed all this stuff...

XD You're right.

That's going to be my response from now on.

Person A: Little Shop of Horrors is about a man-eating plant. It's really funny!

Me: If that's true, then Faust is about a devil. It's really funny!

I owe you, P Down.

Okay, I guess I'll do Twoey.

..IN SILHOUETTE.

Not only does that sound awesome, but the lack of color would make it cheap!

Anypony got an Audrey II silhouette?

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
