    No offense SD, but some bigotted white fatass donut munching cop is gonna look at you and see a black tattoo'd guy and just assume you're a drug dealer in the wrong part of the town.

    A good idea I got from a friend with a tattoo, get it done in henna for 6 months and try it out. If after 6 month you have no problems and you still like them, then have it done permanently.

    I met this native american guy in SD who had a great mind set about tats.
    He was covered in them btw.
    He said that they were "a road map of who you were and what you have believed over time and whether or not you keep to those beliefs or grow to wish the tats undone they are and will always be a part of who you were and ultimately have become because of those beliefs." I'm paraphrasing cause, yeah. . . this was a few years back now but you get the idea.

    This sort of changed my whole opinion of tattoos tbh. I never got the appeal (Terrified of needles so no prizes for guessing why) but I adore this mentality. I'm also contemplating getting one at least, eventually. Once I have some money to get them that is.

    It would be a hangul (korean aplhabet) of the meaning of my name. My rl name has an affliation with irish myths. I have studied in uni and on my own different cultures myths and legends. So it reflects where I come from as well as my interests. I choose hangul because of my obsession with asian cultures and because I prefer hangul symbols to japanese or chinese ones. It would also represent my ambitions, teaching eng in korea.

    Only larger and more ornate. I'd want it on the back of my neck so if I want to hide it (e.g work) my hair is an easy cover

    I was reading this and yeah, I dont want to be living artwork, but im not filling some repressed desire to be a rebel or anything, I'm not doing it to please other people or get them to notice me. I'm doing it because since I was a kid its been a desire of mine, i saw people with amazing tattoos and I loved it, the intricacies, the secret meanings, the depth that could be construed with art that one wouldnt normally find in a painting or anything. Its a unique medium with more options than a canvas and that makes me want it for myself.
    And why would some people wanna have a tattoo and some others despise them? Ask yourself who are the majority of people who walk around with tattoos, what are their jobs and what's their intellectual bias. I'm not condemning them but I can't cope with the fact that there are some people running around with damn ugly tattoos made by amateurs and I don't know if they really thought twice before they decided.

    Sigh~
    No contest here, i see tattoos all the time that look like shit and mean nothing, hell i work with people with tattoos that make me say "really, wtf were you thinking?". That just makes me all the more determined to get something with substance.



    Yeah, but do you intentionally inhale asbestos? Do you intentionally eat chemicals?
    At least, take some time between your tattoos because your liver will have a hard time to dispel the toxic metals from your blood. There's biological ink but that won't last a lifetime.
    You should consider asking for a non-permanent tattoo, the ink will last for a year and you have time thinking about if you wanna go permanent. It's still a healthy risk.
    Maybe.

    I doubt it will be that cheap if you wanna make it from a pro. I had friends who paid 500-600 dollars for huge ass tattoos, and those were only friend prices. If it's really that cheap then it can't be good.
    Theyre not gonna be large tatoos, maybe two to four square inches. Plus I intend to spend a good amount of time shopping around before I settle on someone... like Katherine Heigl did in Knocked Up before she picked her gyno xD


    A Ducati? That's like "my first car has to be a Ferrari or Lamborghini". You pay 2/3 only for the name Ducati. Plus, you should look at used motorcycles first before you consider buying a brand new one. I'm currently thinking about a used Harley Davidson Dragster for 5 500 Euros. It's a fucking metal pig but I love it.
    If you wanna motorcycle so bad then try a Buell XB series. They're not build anymore and should be fucking cheap over at the US. A fine bike that you can either buy as naked or racer. And if you really wanna go italian, then try a Benelli TNT Cafe Racer. Donnu if they were shipped over to the US.
    Lambo... not reeeeeeally. lol. I do like Buell bikes, I have seen a few of them but theyre really rare where I live. Plus looking at their website, theyre much MUCH more expensive than Ducati's... liek the cheapest bike they have is still $9,000... most are pushing 12-15k. By the time I'm financially ready to spend money on something as crazy as a bike im sure money wont be an issue...

    Btw yeah i love naked bikes.





    Yeah. Cops see you with tattoos that look like 'gang tribals" or "18th street" then they wanna talk with you why you're out of prison again.
    Lol they wont be able to see them, look where i said i was gonna put em xD


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Afraid of needles? As 98 said, try with henna. There's no needles involve.

    Have done Bought my pwn henna and did my own designs when I was 16ish. Haven't done in a while now. Must do it again. *nods*
    I'm not that bothered by tat needles anymore. Ears pierced in three places now too so it's just medical injections that freaks me out atm
