    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.

    I LOVE tattoos. I Love them on myself.

    *I have two* (Want many more) and I Love them on others! I am glad that tattoos are starting to be more socially acceptable, because they really are beautiful and a freedom of expression and true art.

    Tattoos Are Addictive...

    I love tattoos.  It's been important to me to keep them hidden (covered by clothes).  I have 3.  My last is a black dragon on my back.  I love tattoos-I'm wondering what part of my body I can put the 4th.

    My First One

      I've wanted a tat for as far back as I can remember.  I'm a huge chicken and afraid of needles.  That causes a bit of snafu since tats are all about needles.  This week, I finally decided that I was going to do it.  Heck, I've given birth to two...

    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...

    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.

    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.
