I'm interested to see what kind of ink y'all have so let's see it!

I'm in the process of designing my first tattoo at the moment. I've had a few major surgeries on my shoulder and I'm looking to cover up the scars/get a bad to the bone tattoo. It should be pretty win-win for everybody.

I have between 10-12 planned ones. None put on me at the moment, but I have a lot planned.

I think I have part of one of mine in my hub under the photos.

My suggestion on tattoos, wait until you are older like mid to late 20's to start getting them. I know I had a different mindset when I was 20 when I got my first one and now when i'm 31. The one I got when I was 20 got covered up.

That's a pretty intricate tattoo. How long did that take to do/cost? And I've got at least a year until the most recent scar heals up enough to even think for real about covering it so I've got a ton of time to think about the long term.

It took about six two hour sittings. I think it was around $500 or so. My guy charged me a different price every time I went. I love color because I am so white, haha!

Good advice. I have 4 tattoos. I had my first one done in my mid-30s.

Kind of weird to get a St. Peter's Cross above your cock.

I think part of getting a tattoo is the experience. This was coolest tattoo experience so far.

I have a few. I will post them if I can find a picture of what they look like, maybe.

Two are Coat of Arms.:

The other is a skull and cross bones with the letters T on the left side, F on the top, M on the right side, and M on the bottom. It's on my forearm.

The other is on my the superior part down the lateral aspect of my right shoulder, "audi Israhel Dominus Deus noster Dominus unus est diliges Dominum Deum tuum ex toto corde tuo et ex tota anima tua et ex tota fortitudine tea"

And, I recently got "Totus tuus ego sum, et omnia mea tua sunt." tattooed on a banner.

My next one will probably be, "Ecclesia Militans" along my collar line/collarbone.


All of it is in gray scale. I'm not a big fan of color.

My bro is going to france in 2 weeks, getting inked off the guy who did The Rock's he's called Po'oino.

He's getting a polynesian tattoo similar to the rocks but a different design. Guna take 3 days, 3-4 hours a days, around $1500

I just found some drawnings or pictures on the internet and told my artist what I wanted. He took the ideas and drew out his own collaboration and that is what came from it.

I really like tattoos. I've decided this summer, I'll likely be getting "Solum Per Exitum" (Latin for 'the only way out is through') across my upper back, with a medium sized cross running down the center. Or I've wondered about getting it on my ribs, but when I wear cut-offs, I'd rather not everyone see it.

Getting tattoos seems to be a fad for America's youth right now, so...

I'm gonna be all cliche and say for anybody looking to get a tattoo to make sure you really want one because it will be with you forever unless you can afford the painful laser tattoo removal.

And I'll also say to get to know your tattoo artist at least a little bit because my 'all business' tattoo experience just left me feeling weird... almost like a used t-shirt. lol

I'll agree with you on this one. I see a bunch of my friends get tattoos that I know they're going to think are stupid in about 5-10 years. That's why if I get one, it's going to be something worth while.

your friends will probably think what you think of them. Lol seriously, a tat should be for the person getting it, if it satisfies them i dont give a fuck what the tatoo is, how stupid it seems to me or whatever, its not my body, if its what someone wants or what we make be skeptical about what they 'think' they want now, then so be it. I dont know why everyone gets so offensive about other ppl getting tatttoos. like seriously, its not ur body, its not ur body, again its not ur body..... dont judge so hard guys. Not in a thread about just showing off body art, which ONLY A FEW PPL WHO HAVE POSTED PICTURES OF THEIR TATTOOS HAVE ANY FUCKING RELEVANCE

Definitely in the same boat. I've always loved tattoos, but really wanted to make sure it was something that I know 30 year old me, 40 year old me, 50 year old me.... would all look back on and say 'Yeah, that still defines me'. I've waited a long time on deciding what to get, but I think I'm certain on what I want now.

Also, I really want my tattoo to be 'hidden'. Something that just walking in public, you wouldn't see. Those who you tattoos as a form of art is cool, but for me, I want it to be personal, something that you have to probably know me at a certain level to really know about.
