Imagine being a kid, it's summer and your dad is outside drinking a beer with no shirt on and you can see these faded tattoos on him.
Wouldn't you just have to ask:
>dad, how was i made?
"Err, umm, well y'see..."
>because you are clearly a faggot.
There's two, and only two acceptable situations where you can get a tattoo :
1. You're in prison
2. You're in a gang
If not, you are a gigantic fucking faglord craving for attention and thinking he's different from other people and you should jump off a bridge see if people care.
You can say the same thing about clothes
Some just want tattoo because they like the style. Like you body is a wall and tattoos are grafitti.
Only faglords think all tattoos must have deep meaning
This life you are living now is only one time experience before your memory gets whipped out so who gives a fuck
there needs not to be a story behind a tattoo but getting one just because you think it's "beatiful" is pathetic, that's how you end up with tribals koi fish and dragons because so cool so manly wow such mysterious
just give a design a little thought, add something from yourself, be engaged
the fuck man, that's basically what he said, just not in as many words
i'm probably never going to get a tat but people need to get the fuck over this whole grandmotherly attitude toward them. more than ever people seem to be terrified of committing to things because they're too busy trying to plan minute details of their lives 20 years ahead so they flip out when they see someone else violate their overly-conservative way of looking at things.
basically it's "look at me, i'm an adult already, kids these days fucking suck! don't they know their tats will be ugly when they get old even though everyone else their age besides me is going to have ugly tats too!"
your three word opinion matters. I guess we should delete the thread now. Thanks for taking the time to click on every post number and lift the dark veil of ignorance from our eyes. I once was lost but now I am found.
Yeah, unfortunately a lot of the tattoos posted here will look like garbage in 5-7 years, I mean, they're cool now, but the line work on those tattoos is gonna disappear so fast and blur like shit.
i want to get something like this
condense a whole backpiece into half of the back
a moderfucking Oni
then the other half something related to Buddha either some Buddha guardians or chinese lion dogs
>want to get tatted the fuck up
>be mexican japanese
>both countries relate tattoos to gangsters
>mostly viewed in a bad way
i guess i need to stay in the US
>nobody likes tribals
But. I'm Norwegian and I want a quarter sleeve and I think this looks gud.
fuck yeah they are.
Got the tattoo before their new album came out.
was kinda worried that they were gonna change it up and start to suck.
new albums dope,
like Say Anything, was gonna get a new tattoo for them, but their new album is absolute garbage, so, i dont see myself getting something of them on me any time soon.
a smaller picture of mine. I can post more if anyone cares.
I enjoy strictly thick line traditional with no useless filling.
I've been going to Heath Preheim at Temple Tattoo in Oakland for a while.
