tfw all those /fa/ tattoo threads have made me want a tattoo now but I'm too poor to afford one.
also tfw want to copy MC Ride's right forearm so hard but that would be fuccboi to copy someone's tattoo
I'd get any of these 3 music related tats (motw sans text)
aside from them I'd just get some flowers to represent people etc, cliché I guess but I like the concept personally
Can anyone identify these?
From a film called Snow Piercer which is okay but I can't find anything about the tattoo's!
Shall dump a few inspo's in a moment, will just drop this still first.
Fucking love engraved looking tattoos.
At one point considered getting a squid but I'm kinda over that idea by now.
>Why don't you want to get the squid anymore?
I don't know I guess I just kinda got bored with the idea.
my ex girlfriend has a picture with this guy
Is the guy just a model?
I'd get a tattoo because I want to, not because it's "different/edgy"
you can get a reasonable one and have a job and all that
people who get edgy shit or get a new skin are just autistic
>"TATTOOED AND EMPLOYED"
then how do you go about being the opposite?
Don't get any, nothing cool or original about them anymore.
Get them all you want, but don't act like it's cool. Mainstream sucked out any originality from the piercing,tattoo and dyed hair sub cultures.
I remember when dyeing your hair red made you a freak to most people, but every cunt rushed the selves for red hair dye as soon as rhianna did it.
yeah, I know, it's such a shame how the internet and ease of access to information makes you have to think twice before doing literally anything because of how easily you'll be associated with the trash everything is tainted by nowadays
every time I realize that I end up second guessing myself about everything but if I just stop giving a shit about other people and how they do stuff, I can do my own thing and still be original.
the biggest mistake is doing anything to the point of becoming a part of the subculture
I can do my own thing in a reserved enough way I don't fall into any category, or do anything consistently to earn a label
Oh man, i have 4 tattoos so far, all become invisible with a basic shirt, i don't have the balls to get full sleeves, i'd love to but i just can't. I'm pretty good looking but not enough to be a model like most of the guys on this pictures and i have to get a job in a city/country that doesn't like tattoos that much. fuck me
>getting tattoos of album art
>using images from google instead of creating an original piece
>getting anything video game/anime related ever
>getting tattoo sleeves ever, especially edgy skull ones
>having words, quote, phrases tattooed like your fucking newspaper print
find something thats personal.
i know ur aware how lame it is, but the fact it even entered your mind its troubling.
mc ride got his tats cuz he lived his life, has several influences, seen films, read books, listened to whatever.
and for some kid to just rock up and ask for the same tat??
Don't know if I'd want a chest piece that's all pointy like that.
Wouldn't it look weird popping out of your shirt?
We have a different taste in tattoos then.
cuz i know for a fact you got that from death grips
you have no history or connection with that graphic. it means fuck all to you besides looking cool and shit. DG used it effectively as an image for their art.
stop being an impressionable little babby
I have one other, and it's the brand of sacrifice from that manga "Berserk" on the back of my neck/shoulder area.
>yes, I am horrifically sunburned in this photo
beserk is 10/10 bro, chinese cartoon faggotry is rampant but berserk is on a different astral plane
I actually considered it myself at one point but it would be one of those "mundane to anyone out of the loop and tryhard to anyone in it" things, like album cover shirts and shit like that
I'm getting a epaulet with a valknut on my shoulder tomorrow.
some grungecore girl i know just got this after a bunch of shit happened to her.
I'm thinking of getting a similar one. Well not similar, but the same place. Seems like a good place for something silly but still cool.
Do you think words or a picture would be better?
Thinking about getting half my arm in pure black to cover up this tattoo I don't like. The tattoo is of this word and I still want to have it tattooed, just in a different spot. Have had this idea for a while, what does /fa/ think?
DG one is too dope
I was thinking about pic related but in black and white
thinking of a small black & white EP, but I don't think it'll be powerful enough without an artist name or title. I'd put them on there if there was a record I knew 100% I'd still love in 5 years
thinking about getting the hebrew from pic related somewhere, not sure yet
also, what do you think about a couple solid black rings high on the forearm maybe 1/4" thick
wake me up when that's over.
My friend is beyond retardation.
It says "sorry mother"
For fuck sakes, it's even lacking punctuation, oh and it's like a sry more than a sorry.
I've been thinking about getting this on my left pec (extended to my tricep) in honor of my younger brother who passed. I've made myself wait 2-3 years to prove I truly want it. And I do.
What does /fa/ think? What would you add or change? Or would you go a different direction? I'm open to all input.
damn that sucks man
sorry for your loss
but yeah tats in memory of ppl are usually better the more personal they are imo
its kinda lame if the same/a similar design could b found on some1 else
Unfortunately I agree with the other guy, I don't particularly like the design. But the meaning behind it is what matters and I don't think anyone would begrudge you if you told them what it meant. However, you're not going to be able to tell everyone that sees it so I guess it's up to you.
I think it's stupid to change your mind on something with a lot of personal meaning to you just because anonymous strangers on the internet tell you they don't like it though, so yeH
Staying prideful, faggot. My skin is a clean canvas for my clothes.
Go stain your bodies. I'd love to know how confident you are with your little "memoirs" and inside jokes in a few years. Most of you are in your early to mid 20s. Enjoy getting laid with a reminder that your grandpa died on your arm, or some stupid shit in another language to convince yourself that you're the slightest bit sophisticated. Self-inhibiting, you faggot.
>muh tattoos look at my individuality l0l
>wow me too i have 1 i got inked too
>we both got inked yay
Wanted to add that even when you're the most closed-minded, the human mind is still a work of spontaneity; a realm of various thoughts. You will most definitely look back at your shitty decision.
Thanks but I'm not looking for a bunch of feels. Just trying to find a way to give him tribute and keep him alive. You all (except the mall-wizard-ninjas) have great tastes, so I figured I'd ask here. I really appreciate the responses.
>However, you're not going to be able to tell everyone that sees it so I guess it's up to you.
Bingo. All I have decided is that I want a tattoo for him. Other than that -- the design is still completely up for thought. All I'd like is something original and everyone's ideas for achieving that.
>I think it's stupid to change your mind on something with a lot of personal meaning to you just because anonymous strangers on the internet tell you they don't like it though, so yeH
And as I just said -- I haven't decided what to get. And actually, I appreciate the anonymous response. It's definitely more honest and refined than all the sugar coated stuff you hear out there.
That's what makes this place for me.

Composition/Divison, Black-and-White, Loaded Question
>Self-inhibiting, you faggot.
I think we need to take this guy seriously everyone.
this is mine located on my rib
I think it's kinda cool whether you get the reference or not
Thinking about getting the drawing from this on my inner rib.
Is a circle on my wrist effay?
Is it a bit too bland?
youre describing pleb tattoos, which is clearly not what we are discussing, this is about tattoos as art; an indisputable assertion validated by a large community.
think about what you do to threads when youre alittle drunk and alittle mad.
anyways i wanna talk about subcultures and tattoos because someone mentioned tattoos no longer signify subcultures and that is true if you buy our 'post modern' situation, but if you think about it in the 80s and 90s it wasnt like people were constantly looking objectively at themselves saying 'im a post punk, im gonna get a sort of cool tribal/goth thing and its gonna define me as this subculture i belong to. More likely, they didn't think too hard about it because the art came from a place of personal inspiration. Like everything we put a label on it later on so go ahead and get whatever the hell you want, but i personally hate the shameless copying of past generations and would urge you not to get that sailor jerry tattoo or that laurel on your shoulder unless youre gonna think about it as relevant art, for 2014. This is just my opinion and in the end its supposed to be fun and look cool and all that
I'm quite fond of the stuff that this guy puts out
I know the solid lines are pretty overdone at this point but I still like the look of it with the red in the middle
I'm probably going to get this angel in all black stylized so that it's suspended by my other tattoo. is this /fa/
the demon will be removed. Also can anyone translate the lettering on the bottom stone :)
The amount of stupid comments I get about this shit is fucking annoying as shit... however: IDGAF
Don't know if it's just this picture but my arms are actually not that fat lol.
Let me rephrase: It's annoying that I keep getting asked why I have a black band round my arm and I'm too modest to say 'It's minimalistic art that means nothing" so I make up some dumb story each time to cover up the fact that I just wanted a black band round my arm.
I like it, but it seems nobody else does. This is what is frustrating. For this reason I disregard peoples comments and yet still feel slightly awkward about the whole thing
Im thinking about making advitsising tattos and numbers and shit
like amazon, coca cola, apple ect
so i look like a walking human sheep
similar to dando
Can we have some simple/"shitty" tattoo inspo. like, if you're gonna get a lot of tattoos, they look best like this
how do you get inspo for something thats supposed to be whimsical and dumb and not mean anything tho
