That's great Shank! I got my Offspring angel tattoo last year, and it feels great to have it. :D

Where will you put it? On arm or... somewhere else?

BTW I don't think it's a good idea. I also love The Offspring, but... :confused:

C'mon! Of course its a good idea! I will get a couple flaming skulls on each shoulder, one black, and the other white, and the angel in the forearm, or maybe the bisceps...

Anyways, that's the best desition you could make, man, good for you!

Yes, the inside of my forearm. I've been a fan for 15 years and I'm absolutely certain I want this. It's not going to be HUGE or anything. Probably like 2"x2" - completely round. I want it black and red.

I'm not much of a tattoo fan. After a couple of years it won't look good anymore.

Agreed, as much as I love The Offspring, I won't have the bands logo or their album art tattooed on my body but each to their own.

The rumours that you have heard about tattoos being addictive is true ... I'm already planning my next one.

Good luck, Shank! I'm a little jealous to see all these awesome Offspring tats everywhere. I'm not much of a tattoo person, but if I were to get one, I wouldn't be against getting something related to the band.

I think having a tattoo related to the album art or the skull logo is fine. But, I could never get the name of the band or a song title or lyrics or anything on me. NEVER.

A few people think getting a band tattoo is not a good idea, lets face it, many people think tattoos in general are not a good idea. I had my first Offspring tattoo done about 8 years ago and my second Offspring tattoo done about 18 months ago. I love them both, I will never regret them.

When people get fashion or trend tattoos like the stars that are going around at the moment then I think there is a danger of regret in the future. When someone has loved a band for as long as Shank and I have loved The Offspring, the tattoos will never be regretted

:p xx

Although I LOOOOOOOOOVE the look of tattoos, I'm probably never going to get one.

I'm simply too much of a coward to get one, not because I can't take physical pain. No. I'm shit scared of the vision of me being 60 and regretting the tattoo.

Things change, two years ago, I would have died to have an Offspring skull tattooed on my arm. Now, I don't even like arm tattoos and I don't really listen to anything newer than Ixnay. And that skull reminds me of Conspiracy of One too much.

Don't get me wrong, the Offspring and NOFX are most definitely my two favorite bands, but I can't promise they will still be my favorite bands in 2020.

I want to get the RAFRAG angel on my back(fairly big) and the skull on my upper breast...
I also want the Original Prankster guy on the other one... but i dont think i will. I am not too fond of the idea of ink being injected into my skin!

Upper breast? I totally just got the image of someone with four boobs...

When someone has loved a band for as long as Shank

I'm not gonna lie... i read this as skank and did a double take.

Tats are cool Cass, but why so many Offspring tats? Iīve had idea of a S.M.A.S.H. tatoo on my forearm for 5 years, but Iīd hate it now, so I havenīt done it n if I ever get Offspring tats then it will be after the band dies n Iīll get all of them tatooed on my back as a memory. But that will hopefully never happen =)

Does that include the overflow inside the skull, Shank? If it does, then please, please consider changing it. I think it's going to look awful. And aren't there more original options than the skull?

It's original to me because the skull represents The Offspring in my opinion. I like it exactly the way it is in the pic. The colours, especially. :cool:

You know what, the skull's actually my favorite Offspring symbol, too. Admittedly, I preferred the CO1 Yellow on Red one, but I still think it's a sweet symbol.

I agree with Tijs, its gonna look weird, I think, why don't you get it black and red, like the forum, or RAFRAG, that will look totally better, I think. But you should do whatever you want, it's your tattoo, not ours, and its gonna be awesome anyways becasue it's about The Off! :)

Well here it is. The red in between the eyes are dried blood because I can't wipe it hard for a few days. I am allowed to go back for touch-ups in the next 2 weeks if need be once I can clean it better. I'm sure some of you are thinking, "Why have The Offspring written underneath it?" I wanted to, so I did. ;) Anyone that knows the skull, will know that's it's them. Anyone that doesn't - will know when they read it.... lol.

Wel, I thought those red lines and the other dark ones were spermatozoids... it looks great, gratz!!

Ah well, the colors came out better than I expected, but still I would've chosen differently. Can you post a photo with some more distance so the proportions show more clearly?

Oh but uhh.. I have huge respect for you getting a tattoo. I've been wanting an Offspring tattoo for a long time now but well.. I didn't.

I think that tattoo looks pretty cool actually! Great work, Shank.

On a side note, I'll never get a tattoo of any kind. There you go. :D

Tijs,

Here is a better shot of it. My arm is still pretty swollen and red around it. It's about 2" below the bend of my arm. Hope it helps.

Your parents are allowing you? I don't think you're allowed here till you're 18 with a written permission letter from your parents. :eek: I guess it all depends on where you're from / where you get the tattoo done (like company) / or if you get a tattoo or piercing done.

Enjoy!
