    Ironically, I have been passionate about not

    getting a tattoo because it's so permanent and I change my mind so often that I don't think a tattoo is a genius idea for me. But lately, I've been wanting one. I'm the type of person that if there's no logical explanation in doing something, I won't do it. I won't get a tattoo...

    I have scars I want to cover up

    and a tat is pretty much the most aesthetic way of doing so. I'm just a bit hesitant because I can't think of many things that I would feel comfortable permanently engraving into my flesh. Most tattoos seem to be trite abstractions or meaningless symbols. I guess these scars can...

    Maybe

    I dunno I am thinking about it. Nothing is written in stone for me yet. Depends where I am in life and where my body is at.

    I have an appointment tomorrow night to get the

    gospel tattoo on my hip. It's my first tattoo so does anyone have any advice? P.S: I'm 19 so I don't need my parents signature but I have to get it on my hip bc they can't find out so don't try to talk me out of getting it there.

    Memorial Tattoo

    I don't have any tattoo's or piercings for that matter.  I've always been deadset against it.  Not that I don't see the artistic value of them;  it's just not something I've ever wanted. In December, one of my dogs passed away.  I casually mentioned to my...

    Tattoos on guys - what do you think?

    For a long time I couldn't come up with any sort of imagery or message that felt right enough to put on my body in such a permanent way - what if I feel differently about things a year from now, or 10 years from now, and I end up with something I don't believe in stuck on my...
