They quite frequently do, the one nice thing about tattoos is its not a flat canvas but you get no real feel for that on a photograph.

You having the same theme or a different one for the right leg if its The Simpsons again then there has to be Cecil Terwilliger on that one to go with Sideshow Bob thats my favourite part of your tattoo.

Cecil was gonna be head and shoulders like bob but instead of a knife and axe crossed was going to have crossed dynamite and plunger.

You should, you should. But pic a tattooist who is good at bright colours :)

Please show me when you've done it. Sounds exciting :)
Recommendations:
Keep it simple. Better to have a striking bold image then something muddled where no one can tell what it is.
Find a tattooist who is very good with bold and bright colours
Even better if you can find a tattooist who likes the Simpsons
Also you may have to save up your money for a while. You'll have the tattoo for life so better so save up to pay for a good quality tattoo then go for the cheap option but get a substandard tattoo.
