My question requires more of an opinion based answer, then a factual answer. But I would prefer the opinion from someone who deals with body art on a regular basis, so this is the place I have come.

I want to get a pin-up model tattooed on my upper outer thigh, from just below my hip to just above my knee. Generally, you would see pin ups tattooed here who would appear to be ’standing’ as the person stands. however, the tattoo I want (which is based on a picture of my mother, therefore altering it is not really an option), she is laying down, so her feet would be nearest to my knee, and she would appear to be ‘laying down’ when I am laying down.

does this seem like an awkward placement??

Awkward, maybe.
I’ve seen it done quite successfully a handful of times (well, not with your mother’s portrait. that would be an amazing coincidence) so I know it’s possible to look great.

I have a friend who’s thighs are tattooed so that the images are right side up when she looks at them with her knees drawn up; standing they’re upside down. They look awkward, but she loves them, and that’s all that matters.
