For all you gung-go soldiers or just people who went out and got a tattoo... post them here so we can all appreciate your body art. I'm 16 and I will definitely be getting a tattoo as soon as I turn 18.

I'm glad I had a strict father who would have kicked my ass if I got one when I was your age. Otherwise, currently I might be the proud owner of a "Drama Faces" Motley Crue tat....

never had even the slightest inclination to permanently mark my body on a temporary whim

the only tattoos i can understand are military and perhaps that in itself is only from my inability to join

No tattoo's atm. I was thinking of getting my son's name and b-day in some form or fashion thou. Never a woman's name.

At the end of Basic Training...........I had a choice either to go to town and get a tattoo or go to a strip bar. I don't have a tattoo.

I've been thinking about getting some sort of tatoo but haven't decided yet. I'm leaning toward getting an American flag on my left sholder because that would never go out of style.

Maybe someday I'll understand the current fascination with tattoos.

Here is one of mine!

I'm going to get one with the WTC towers and "9/11/01 : Still Haven't Forgotten"... and then I'm sure more will be developed. I WILL NOT get any below my elbows, on my chest, calves, anywhere that you could see it if I was wearing a business shirt and slacks.

This should get interesting. I'll have to see if I have any pics online.

Do me a favor though. Think this through. I have 9 tattoos, and hopefully come xmas or thanksgiving I'll have one or two more, so I'm not some puritanical nitwit saying "tattoos are bad". and obviously I am not your father and what you do to yourself makes no nevermind to me. BUT.

1) Don't get any band logos.
2) No names, unless it's of your child or a dead person.
3) No portraits, with the same exceptions as #2
4) Research the HELL out of the place you're going. If you're too stupid to tell the difference between good art work and a scratch merchant, take along a friend who isn't.
5) For your first tattoo at least, get it somewhere that won't show in shorts & a t-shirt. If my job allowed it I would have a full sleeve, but I am so glad that at 18 I didn't get my first tat on my forearm or my neck or some stupid shit like that. I'd much rather be making bank now and in the future than walking around with some lame shit on my arm impressing the trailer-park crowd.
6) DON'T PICK FLASH OFF THE WALL. Everyone who is actually into tattoos will laugh at you. It's like buying a tacpoint scope. Only the other idiots that bought flash will think you're cool. Everyone else (including the guy doing the work) will think you're an idiot.
7) You can have it fast, cheap, or good. Pick 1. I prefer good. Good ink will cost you at a minimum $100/hour. Minimum. Great ink (unless you have an insider) will cost twice that. If you think your cousin in the next county over is good, post some of his work so I can explain to you why he sucks.
8) And the biggest one, make sure you know what you are doing. People will judge you based on the sole fact that you have a tattoo. I know that at 16 you think you're too cool for school and don't give a shit, but one day you will. Personally my tattoos serve as a social filter. I don't like most of the people that don't like my ink. Works out great. Tattoos are trendy right now. They won't always be. This is not a nose ring that you can take out when the fad dies.

I could go on and on, but you're young & dumb and aren't going to listen anyway.

Current? I've remember as a kid being interested in tattoos. Liked them even then.

And has been pointed out ad nauseam, tattoos have been around for thousands of years, and in many cultures. It's nothing new my friend.

Got a bunch myself, I'll see if I can get some posted tomorrow.


BTW grH_Revelation, what part of Missouri are you from?

I think the tattooing is the least of the problems there.

When I told my mom what that is, she asked me what I'd do if they went out of business. I just kind of smiled.

One of my friends "back home" (Tallahassee, FL) is a tattoo artist. Notice I said artist. He's not working for the same shop he was when I got those done. I'm not sure of the name of the shop he works at now.

Of course it's always a good idea to pick a tatoo artist that appears stable....

No. Just in case I have to resort to a life of crime I don't want the America's most wanted pic of me holding a beer and pointing to my Tattoo.

Dammit, you're on to me!

Okay. I'll be straight with you all... I'm actually cataloging all these tattoos for the FBI.
