Don't have any myself, never could see a reason for one. They don't do anything for me, so I just don't bother with 'em. Each to thier own though if you want one get it have fun with it.

Do yourself a favor  Look two or three times and then decide.   Not a quick decision. Most tatoos hava a hidden meaning ask the tatooist if it has any meanings. It will be with you for a while . Imagine when you are older and asked why you got it what you will say . I had a friend with a Black Panther on his leg ,I asked why he got it he said it was the only one he could afford . Lame   another friend got a rose on his shoulder he thought the chicks would like it . Turns out a Black rose means someone close to you has died so every time people see it he gets " who died" .     My 2cents

Yeah, I've gotten the look twice more than once :thumbs:  I already know what I am going to get, and I have wanted the same thing for several years now, so I'm pretty sure of it :yupyup:  I want a simple cross, nothing fancy, and I want an American flag :usa:

all of my tattoos have a certain meaning ( you know that, I do believe, since I am certain that I told you before ), get stuff that means something to you, and you alone, that way nobody can take that away from you. Sure, some people would talk crap about whatever, but as long as it means something to YOU, you're golden.  :thumbs:

if I were going to get one it'd be a skull with to pistons and crossbones.  Don't know where just think it looks cool.  But I'll never do it because when I'm old I think it'd look stupid

I've never really found something that I'm so passionate about that I want it permanently displayed on my body. The only one that I've seen that I would even consider would be the handprints of my children, since they are my life. Still, I doubt I would actually do it.

Some I've seen are very cool, but it's just not for me.

 anyone have any pictures?  I enjoy seeing tattoos, and hearing the stories behind them.  I used to work in a hardware store with a lot of retired military guys, man they had some cool stuff, and some great stories to go along with.

A guy we fished with this weekend has portraits of his kids as infants on his forearm.  I thought that was pretty cool.

I've got a celtic heron on one arm, seventy dollar job I got with a tax refund.  I don't regret it, per se, but I have thought of other designs by now that I might have preferred.

Just don't get any on your right hand or Fourhead.........as it states in the Bible. Their Marks of the Beast. otherwise Ink up Man, Sleeve out....get lighting bolts on your neck. I've seen some bad & stubid jailhouse ones in quentin.....remember it's permanent , unless your into lasers or skin graphs. I've got a buddy that getting peckerwood ones taken off his neck......in stages......and it's real painful, having them come off..it ain't nothing putting them on.

I also know people that have ink , that is one design , now, but was gotten to change into something else later in life, because of Sagging, etc... ask the artist for ones to do

Oh and I have a Cross on my left upper arm, and Mom on my back left shoulder
