Tattoos are amazing art for the human body. You must be 18 to legally recieve one unless your parents are complete morons and decide to sign for you when you're too young...in which case you'll probably get a dumb-ass tattoo like a hand gun with "187" above it because you think you're a gangster!

Tattoos, for adults who have an actual brain inside their skull, are a way of telling their life story or a way of remembering things or people you love. Getting a tattoo is not something little kids should do because if you're not mature you will get something really stupid that you will regret later in life because you'll then realize that it REALLY IS PERMANENT!!! My tattoos are gorgeous because I was smart...HOPEFULLY someone who's thinking about getting something like a "Gang Tattoo" or a "Butter Knife" on their forearm will read this and remind themselves that maybe what you're thinking of getting just might not be that cool!!
Good example..."WOW, I would love to get tattoos on my back so that I can know it's there but I can also cover it up so that I still have a chance to get a good job!"


Bad example...(15 yr old girl) "I want a tattoo, like, soooo bad!! But my mommy and daddy won't, like, let me get one...so I'm going to, like, get this guy from school I know to, like, put my name, like, REAL big across my stomach but, like, real low so my pants will cover it up so, like, my parents can't find out!!"

(After 15 yr old girl gets tattoo, her smart 18 yr old sister see's it)
(Sister) "WOW"
(15 yr old) "You're, like, soooo jealous, huh??!!"
(Sister) "Of what?? The tattoo that you got some some kid at school who stole his brother's USED tattoo gun? OR the fact that I don't have one on my stomach so when I have children it won't be able to stretch on me, look disgusting and hang down and then never being able to show my stomach again??"
(15 yr old) "Like...BUMMER!!"

When one desides to pay someone to draw all over their body. Tattoos are feelings that last for about two minutes, then you regret getting it.

Remember: When your old, the "sexy whore" you tattooed on your back will look like a saggy monkey.
My friends tattooed my arms with Crayola marker in art class. My dad was hella-mad.

A PERMANENT ink embellishment on the skin that is usually added in haste and regretted six months down the line; an expression of dedication to somebody or something, often resulting from moments whereby control over senses and emotion is utterly lost.
"Hey! Look at my totally unsexy tattoo! A strange musical character that apparently refers to my girlfriend of less than six weeks!"

1. Form of "artwork" to gain approval from sick-minded and uncreative others
2. In 2020 you'll be unique without one
3. An ugly deformed blot on the elderly
4. a rite of passage into American conformity
5. The only compromise that Goths, Skaters, Punks, Preps, Jocks, Rednecks, and street thugs share: "I'm so cool, check out my new tat!"
6. A permanent reminder of a drunk moment
7. The next generation will rebel against them
Check out that butterfly tattoo on that MILF's midriff, it is the only ugly thing about her.

The mark of a self absorbed prick. Tattoos do nothing of any good to the person, society or the world.
We all know in our heart of hearts that people who get tattoos are morons, just look at MTV.

The only real reasons to have one of these are: you are/were in prison, you are/were in a real criminal syndicate/group, you live with an island tribe, you are/were a sailor, you are/were in an army, you are/were in a concentration camp.
Why most people get tattoos: it looks cool, it looks "pretty", to "express themselves", mid-life crisis, intoxication, to piss of their parents, to not "conform" to society, to be gangsta posers, or because of general whiny-bitch teenage angst.
Most females aged 14-25 get a tattoo of butterflies, flowers, cartoon characters,pixies/fairies with a tribal design on their lower back/pelvic area. Basically means they like to get penetrated. Most males aged 14-40 get tribal armbands, crosses, asian writing, cartoon characters, religious figures, cards/dice, skulls.

An image or word(s) that a person or animal get permanently injected under their skin. Tattoos help identify lost or missing animals, like brands used to. On humans they are usually jokes, ugly, and they tend to identify the wearer as trailer trash. Hopefully, after a certain amount of time, the human regrets the tattoo and has it removed.
Me: Thank God my dog has a tattoo on her inner lip. She could have been unidentifiable at the pound and eventually euthanized.

Never Me in a Million Years: Why on earth did get this star tattoo back in 2003? It seemed so neat at the time. Bah.
