That's the second coolest tattoo next to the Sad Mac.

I like tattos, but there are stupid ones.

Yes, the horribly chliched "tribal armband." Unless you're in a tribe, which no one with a tribal armband is, then you're a fucking dumbass. These are supposed to be a tribute to Native Americans, I assume, which is idiotic, because WE (white people) KILLED THE INDIANS. Here's an idea: get a tatto of you killing them and raping their land. These people should have the area of skin they've gotten tattoed cut off.

A more prescient/"edgy" question:
How many of you people have GENITAL PIERCINGS?

I've got three:

Starry Night by Van Gogh on my arm..

A flower in Native American design on my chest

A sun with a wave crashing over it on my back.

Planning a fourth now. I'll try to get pics up.

I don't have any, and go back on forth on whether I want one. I'm beginning to lean more and more towards no, however, because they probably will look pretty bad in 15 or 20 years. The ink will fade and your skin will get saggy. I have a bit of respect for the carpe diem attitude that purveys everyone with sleeves, etc., but it doesn't change the fact that it's going to look like shit years from now, and they're going to be in vastly different stages of their lives.

There is only one tatoo I would consider.

For some odd reason, one of the first things I did after meeting Mr Brown was yank my shirt sleeve up and show him mine.

It's also how I met my husband. He hit on me at a music fest I was running. The rest is history.

Anyways, mine is rather special to me because I know there's a chance that not one other person in this world has it, and maybe two or three with something slightly similar to it. It's a photo of Marc Bolan aka T.Rex on my left arm below the shoulder. People always comment about how lifelike it looks and completely detailed it. The guy did an awesome job.

I don't regret it. I never will. Who cares if I'm 80 with a wrinkled dude on my arm? I'll have my husband next to me with his two tattoos on his arm, equally as wrinkled.

JB and I both are considering another each sometime soon. Though how I'll top Marc in originality I don't know.

Ouch. Bicep Daffy Duck and I are deeply hurt. I feel your tattoo should match, more or less, your personality. Hence, Daffy. And it's young, psychotic Daffy, not later, Bugs' bitch Daffy. So there.
