    When a guy gets a tattoo: "Looks good

    mate" When a girl gets a tattoo: "Lol does it even have a meaning?" "She's just following the crowd" "She's gonna regret that" "Ew it's too big" "It doesn't suit her" "Tattoos look weird on women" "She just wants attention" SHUT UP you judgemental fools. Live your own life...

    I have three tattoos

    and I REALLY want to get my fourth, a small anchor on my ankle. This is my biggest and favorite one, a Japanese koi for my dad.

    Look at this beauty, I'm in love,

    can't wait to start my sleeve. The only issue I has while getting my tattoo was when the outline was started my body went into shock. After a 10 minute break and two glasses of cold water I was ready to go. The rest of the tattoo went without a hitch. I can't express my...

    Just got a left hip replacement three days ago.

    Have a pistol on that hip. Thought it was going to be ruined. After the surgery. The surgeon went out of his way avoiding cutting through the tattoo. 😀👍

    I wrote this story for a paper for school. I don't feel like changing it or shortening it or anything of that manner. You get it as it is. (I did change the very end, when I state how long I've had it. I felt like I could do at least that much.)    ...

    After much thinking, I've decided to get Ars

    Moriendi tattooed down my right leg. Much to my dismay (pressure) I can't find a single tattoo of this phrase on the Internet. Type in Memento Mori, and the hits keep coming. Does anyone have a picture of an Ars Moriendi tattoo in a nice gothic script font?

    Make Sure It Means Something
