    I Do Not Have My Own

    While I love tattoos..I do not have my own. I'm not sure I would get one..but I love to look at them. They are art..they are not just ink on someones skin. There is a reason and story behind each one. I appreciate all art, it is a wonderful form of expression.

    Yes

    I have a red rose tattoo on my right bicep. It's cool. I like it.People said it hurts to get a tattoo. Nope. I don't think so. I will not get piercing. I might get a Canadian Flag tattoo.

    I like tattoos for many reasons.

    I have a few though they are hidden and you would never know it by the way that I look and dress. I have a special interest in gang related and Bratva tattoos, not so much in wearing them, just in the stories that they tell.

    I've fallen in love with geometric tattoos,

    they're so artistic and I want my first to be one. My only concern is, the tattoo artists here just aren't THAT good. Some of them have fb pages and if the pics I've seen are their "best work" ..I'm not impressed. ¬_¬(Also, I'm dark-skinned so I'm hoping it actually...

    It Depends.....

    I don't want / like full body tattoos...(ex: Kat Von D) but I think that some can be sexy. Also, it depends on what the tattoo is of. I knew a dude who had a tattoo of the cartoon character Johnny Bravo on his arm.....ummm...not so hot.

    Think Before You Ink...

    I love tattoos. I think they can be a wonderful way to paint a little of your personality on your outsides... However, they can also be a giant mistake if you don't think before you apply that all too permanent ink. I have two tattoos that I got when I was 18-19 years old. I was...

    Why I don't have Tattoos: Tats are a personal

    choice. I like some tattoos. Not everyone who has tats are smart, dumb, cool, holy, evil, etc. I don't judge books by covers. Tats require maintenance like a car, or so I've been told.Tats are a life-long art, you become living art, but whose to say that you aren't already...

    I have two tattoos with plans

    for a couple more. Due to my job, I have to get them in places that aren't seen easily. I also like the feeling of getting tattoos. To me it doesn't hurt at all. I'm excited for my next one!

    I must say I love tattoos.

    I have 10 myself, and counting. I think tattoos tell a story of a persons life. Even the bad ones. Mine represent different times and feelings in my life. I put it like this your body is your temple your home why not decorate it and make it comfortable.

    I'm seriously considering getting one,

    I was thinking maybe the boa constrictor from le Petit Prince without the elephant inside on my wrist or my hip. It would be small. Mostly to see who would get the reference :)

    I was thinking of getting one on my right

    shoulder. Since my father and I have the same middle name (KING) I wanted to get play cards, more specifically a suite of kings (all 4) and underneath it would say "Never lost in the shuffle".Along the lines of this with the writng at the bottom, Go or No Go?

    My First Tattoo

    The first Tattoo I ever got was the Japanese symbol for wood. I was 17 and I got it after a close mate of mine died. It was inspired by the way he answered his phone or pm's "I've got a wood". I didn't want RIP or a name and I don't regret my choice.
