Hi I was wondering if it makes sense to have just one dice..

Selle, on average, your around $600 or more for this tattoo. Due to the size and detail, I doubt it would be under $600. Paul, I do see them from time to time. Most dice tattoos portray two of course, but in the end, it is your dice tattoo. Personally if I was going with just one dice, I would add other associated elements, such as poker cards, cherries, money, poker chips, rabbit, horseshoes, something to that nature. What are you looking for or what is your idea behind the one dice? Thank you both for the comments.

I just liked the dice tattoo with the heart in it and I wanted to get my first tattoo of a dice with hearts in it to replace the dots but the hearts will represent an important date. E.g 3 hearts in one side, 5 hearts in the other side, 6 in the other side.. 3/5/06. Getting the second dice would be meaningless to me as it will represent nothing, hence why I was wondering if it actually makes sense to get one by itself.

Paul, giving your meaning, it makes perfect sense. The main goal, it's meaningful to you and in the end, that's all that matters. Meaningful tattoos will always outshine those inked for no purpose. Sounds like a perfect plan, go for it! Just make sure you come back and post your picture, if you don't mind. Simple, but meaningful and I like that. You want a tattoo that you love, respect, and holds meaning. The exciting elements about tattoos, interesting is creative. You never know, your tattoo may begin a trend. Paul, if that is what you truly want, go for it! Thanks for the comments and your welcome back anytime!!!
