Inlay help please !

Hey there guys, I'm thinking of getting an inlay on the 12th fret of my custom. Any of you have any suggestions ? (keep in mind the guitar has fanned frets )
Thanks !

Don't you think it would make sense to give us a bit of info about you? Likes/dislikes etc.

I could suggest getting "I go to work on Sunday" written in Bacon-like font, but you might be Jewish...

you're right, I'm not Jewish though It should be classy and not overdone, something like some cool meaningful symbol that has a meaning ( would hate to end up with something that says spicy tuna roles)

Yeah, but it has to have meaning to you...

Something representing YOUR beliefs, views, ethnicity, heritage, etc.

This is sort of like asking people what tattoo you should get. You need a good idea of what you want before good suggestions can be made.

I said that I really like ancient symbols, but I did think of getting a coral inlay.

You could get your nickname or initials. just in case it gets stolen you could prove its yours a little better

Every guitarist on earth should have a Telecaster, even if you hate Fender

I have a small collection of Bismuth crystals so I'm quite fond of the Alchemy symbol for it (and it's odd resemblance to infinity):
