    I remember we were listing to colors by ice t and drinking natty ice. i think i was 13. someone boosted a bottle of india ink. everybody knew about that shit. so my buddy breaks out the bic and smashes it with his foot until finally we got a little piece of razor. keep in mind this is early 90s white trash shit. so he starts working on the inverted cross on his forearm. proper. then he put "fuck peace" on the spider web between his thumb and index. i started working on "napalm death" on my leg cuz im a pussy but that shit was bleeding up a storm. so i stopped. then about 10 years later this kid was shooting up this other kids trailer home when the kid who lived there decided it wasnt cool anymore. so he shot my tattooist 13 times and tried to burn his body. his defense" the clonapin made me do it" yeah that worked hes doing life. ill never forget that kid. moral of the story - tattoos are cool.

    haha homemade tats when bored. good stuff. good thing the only thing i did was 3 dots on a finger along with some other assorted dots as practice on my hand and a small line on my arm the size of "--"

    but my first real tattoo was when I was 16 at a tattoo shop in East LA.
    I had my aunt go in and pretend she was my mom, and tell the fat biker guy that her son just turned 18 and she wanted to get him a tat but he didn't have an ID. He said sure as long I was 18 and she was my mom. So I got "Brown Pride" tatted above my elbows in handwriting. "Brown" on my left "Pride" on my right. My mom saw it about a week later and prolonged my not having a liscence riding on the buss experiance.

    I got "flux" written in old english script on my lower back when i turned 18. It's pretty big and is shaded. in the lead up to my tat everyone was like "ooh, what about when you get older? you won't be the same person anyone and you won't want it." So I got the word for change permanently tattooed to me :)

    My parents call it my gangbanger tatt

    to flow, a constant state of change

    ^^^ reminds me of mine..

    my first tattoo is a group of little stars kind of dancing around..
    (its a band)

    i got it thinking that it would be a reminder of my youth, and the constant state of change in life..
    i still like it i guess, but i was just a kid when i got it (17)
    at least it looks ok..
