    Smart Tattoos

    Clothes, Shoes and Accessories go by trends and maybe not all are temporary. Tattoos are far more personal and for the most part carefully selected by having a meaning and/or thought but most of all they reflect ones personal sense of style!

    They look tacky, cheap and unintelligent.

    Bottomline; you need not paint your skin to respresent yourself, do that through your actions.

    Re: Smart Tattoos

    There are of course some people who have tattoos for the wrong reasons but there are those who have tattoos which represent the philosophies that they live by or represent something significant in their lives. These often provide a means to express one's self in a way which cannot be done through clothes and accessories.

    Re: Smart Tattoos

    Also depends on the quality of the art work. So much of it is so tacky and looks pretty awful. Spending some good money is the only way to go. I've seen some amazing tattoo's in the past (including one of this guys grand dad in WWII uniform in a black and white photo style. Looked very real and professional.

    Re: Smart Tattoos

    They're awesome if they have a really special meaning behind them but if it's something meaningless then obviously it's a stupid decision
    like for eg one of my friends wanted a freaking anchor on her ankle for no reason lol

    The worst are those who tattoo their short-term bf/gf's name.

    Re: Smart Tattoos

    I want to get sleeves of the first million digits of pi. (not serious).

    I do want a tat eventually, once I decide on one that means enough to me.

    Blasphemy.

    If I were to get a tattoo of anything, it would be something like a Swim/Bike/Run symbol with the stick figure doing each of them.

    But none of that "Devil's Advocate" or "Fully sick dragon" kind of stuff.

    I'm never getting a tattoo.

    I just feel like, if the symbol goes out of fashion it'll look stupid, if I have it somewhere no one will see it then there's no point, and both of my brothers have several and they're just terrible.

    So tattoos are shit.

    Especially if you're down with fashun.

    Re: Smart Tattoos

    a friend of mine got his mums name (sammy-lou) just below one of his nipples. (looks ok)
    If it looks good it looks good and if it doesn't you're fucked.

    Just remember one day you'll be old and have wrinkled skin and your awesome southern cross tattoo will look like some squigly lines.

    My pal has a snake tat on his shoulder. LOOKS SO GOOD.

    I'm going to get one.

    My muscles are so supremely sculpted and refined that some people speculate that I am not actually real, but that I am simply a mirage; they believe that the aesthetic fairy sprinkles aesthetic dust on a few lucky souls, and for 1 millisecond they see the unimaginable dream of aesthetics: ME.
