I want a tattoo. Seeing as it's something that I'll have for a while, I figure I should probably plan something out. Problem is, despite how long I've thought about getting one... nothing ever hits me as something I really want. I want something kind of sprawling I guess, because a tattoo of just one little picture is kind of arbitrary in my opinion, but things like tribals just look fucking lame.

So hit me up with some ideas.

Or alternatively, just post pictures of your own tattoos. Because the thread will probably quickly degenerate/evolve into that anyway.

Well...

I'm into astrology, so getting my Chinese zodiac sign (dragon) was kind of a no-brainer.

I also have some little ones that just remind me of things... like a yin-yang, a koru, an ourobouros.

The thing is, no one can really SUGGEST a tattoo. They are all very personal, and what may be really important to one person, may not be to another.

"I want something permanently inked into my body, but I don't know what design I'd like yet."

Think about it a bit more. Also, don't, don't, don't EVER get one out of the books they have at the tattoo store. Jesus.

If you have to ask for ideas, you probably want to reevaluate. Also, I don't think this is what you are doing, but don't go out and get an 'oh man, I'm 18+ I'm free to get what I want. woooo!'

OlderThanYou, some of yours look like they are straight out of the book.

Rest assured... they weren't.

They all mean something to me, they are like my babies. I love them all. :)

I agree with this.

Personally I like tribals, because they look awesome and you can't like grow out of them, because it's just a pattern, no real meaning behind it.
I got a friend with the Metallica Ninja Star symbol and like a twisting flame coming off it, that starts at his waist and finishes just inder his armpit.

Get a picture of a pussy. Because you're a pussy. Wait, I'm thinking of Sinister. But yeah, you're both still fags.

Oh, and as for the whole 'post your own tatttoos' idea: ride a dick,
ps: I have nothing against you and probably like you, Hey Apathy. Once upon a time I thought you were a pretty cool guy. This is me being honest. Hey.

This seems to be my problem as well ... also what ever idea I have in my mind always turns out to be shit on paper and then it is basically back to the drawing board.

If I were to ever cave and get a tattoo, I'd get something by Camille Rose Garcia. I'm not sure if she actually does/designs tattoos herself, but there's a lot of people out there with tattoos of her artwork.
Here's some of the tattoos:

And here's (http://www.camillerosegarcia.com/) her website where you can see a lot of her paintings and other artwork.

I'm thinking about tattoos too. I want an Offspring logo tattoo on my shoulder, a RAFRAG or Misfits tattoo on my other shoulder, a "Headbanger" tattoo on my stomach like Kirk Hammett has his "Made In SF" tatto, and a Metallica "star" tattoo somewhere. Oh, and 100 bucks on my cock. I like to see my money getting bigger

Yeah, yeah I know. I just had all these ideas then the second they became plausible I went.....eh. That's kind of lame.

All of these fall under the category of terrible ideas.

Thanks for the insobriety is more like it. The Sinister comment is particularly comedic to me.

Don't you also have L/R tattooed in binary on your knuckles or something like that?

Chest, not knuckles. Tattoos are gay.

I've actually had an idea for a tat for some time. It's pretty awesome to me, lots of cool little designs that each individually have meaning and flow together in an artistic way which makes them even better.

Thing is, while this is the best idea I've got and its great, something I"d even be proud of...I don't think I'll end up going through with it. There's no reason why I can't make this idea into a painting or something, and I don't know - I can't know - whether I'll regret having this thing in 5, 10, 20 years.

There's also the fact that tattoos have gotten really trendy. Pop culture tells you that they're hawt and the permanence of it makes you a little badass for having one. Which is pretty lame, but you see a lot of people wanting a tattoo for the sake of a tattoo. Frankly, I don't see what makes you go from really liking a design to wanting to wear it at all times everywhere forever untill you dieeeeeeeeeee.

Wait a year on the design once you have it figured out. If you still want it as much as you did after a year, chances are excellent that you won't regret it in 5, 10, 20 years.
