    Recently, all the girls that I hang around with have been getting tattoos, it's like some strange fad. They just save up the money and get some stupid design that they have on the wall of the tattoo place. They all have like honey bees and little hearts, on their bodies. I'm gonna get a Tattoo at some point but it is definitely going to be either my own design or something that means something to me, not a design that they have on the tattoo parlour wall. Who out there in internet land have Tattoos, is it your own design or something from a tattoo place? just curious.

    as an artist/design/doodlebug type of guy,
    I dont think I could design it myself.

    I've concieved and drawn tats for other people,
    but I'm super critical about my old work.
    Imagine finding a blackbook from 5 years ago.
    It's a little crude right? Well imagine that after 30 years
    where you have to see your doodle every single day.

    That's why I'd just have to trust the tattoo artist to come up
    with something that I like.

    i think a mix of the two theories above, i too probably couldnt put my own shit on me, someone else maybe, and i would be damn sure to look into the tat artist before they skin me and make sure they are quality, which isnt as hard as it sounds, the only tat ive ever thought of gettin was for a dead friend but that was a while ago,

    Thats a good point zesto, I hadn't really thought about it like that, when i get a tattoo it will probably just be some text, a quote or something. but i don't knnow.

    there really cant be any original design for a tattoo, unless by some grace you get some new groundbreaking style done. I mean everything in life is this way.

    im getting a tattoo eventually, its a picture that i found in a book and re-drew, so its half my design half someone elses original idea...i dont know its complicated...

    and wiseguy is that a tom robbins quote in your signature? if so, thumbs up.

    yea but somethings have meaning and are much more original than a heart, honey bee, or star on some girls lower back...

    at my old high school a bunch of really extremely cool cheerleaders got blue stars on their backs. fucking cool dude!! and i hate when people have ugly retarded tribals. if thats their thing ...uhhh cool i guess. but wouldn't you want something at least slightly different or with a good meaning. some girl in my math class asked me to design some stupid butterfly tribal retard thing for her back. no big thing so i did and it looked dumb as hell on her back. its madnessi tell yah..chaos.

    funny tattoo story..okay it is really shitty so dont read itf you dont wanna
    this guy i really dislike ..who i dated for about a week..is an idiot. hes korean but adopted so he cant write or speak it. but he had a freind write his name in korean and so he got it tatooed and his friend isn't too bright either because he spelled it wrong. the end ..of a shitty story

    the tats on the walls look kinda stupid. well to me it does.

    custom is the way to go.

    so is trading art for a tat!

    THE BIG TOE CONSPIRACY....whut whut. i want my tat.

    this is correct, but things like XXX have lost meaning as well thanks to its popular to be alternative trend.
