" NOBDY IS ASKING YOU!... IF YOU DON'T THINK YOU HAVE BALLS ENOUGH TO WEAR A TATTOO, DON'T GET ONE, BUT DON'T TRY TO MAKE EXCUSES FOR YOURSELF, BY KNOCKING THE FELLOW WHO DOES!"- Norman "Sailor Jerry" Collins
Now I can't speak for anyone else in the world but I have always found tattoos to be a very masculine art, especially since a good number of WWII sailors and marines I know have tattoos (however faded they may be now). I personally am heavily inked and will probably keep getting them till i run out of space. I am just interested to find out what my fellow members thoughts are on this subject. Thank you for your comments.

Tattoos can be very cool in my opinion. I'm not talking about the tribal stuff that every douche is wearing. Make it personal, tell a story or let it reflect on your personality. I would get one if I could find a thing i would wear for the rest of my life.
Where did you find that image? Its cool!
it was used in the bokk 1000 Tattoos. I just googled it.
I couldn’t agree more. My first will be of my family crest (after I am 100% sure of its authenticity) and I am planning to follow that with a biblical back mural, consisting of my favorite saints.

Before someone replies about, “Your body is a temple!” My interpretation of scripture (admittedly laymen to some) is that condemnation and salvation don't pivot around individual actions like this, but rather upon the attitude a person has to Jesus Christ. Maybe yours is different but I assume the Big Man has a more practical/important/understanding way of judging a man.

I love it when someone pulls that old chestnut on me (Usually it's someone who doesn't know I'm an atheist). My response? "Never seen a church that needed a new coat of paint and some new chandeliers?" Hehe. I'm such a shit.

I think that sums up smart tattooing if you are going to mark your self permanently it should defiantly be a sober minded and well thought out choice.
I think there is a huge difference between the tattoos of servicemen of the 40's and 50's and those of today. I don't care for them, but, who am I to tell others what to do with their skin. Don't get me started on women and tats....
Unless you are going to say something positive about women and tattoos, then DON'T start on them please.
A strategically placed tattoo on a woman is sexy. If they are covered in tats like the dude above, not so much: but at the same time it doesn't make them hideously unattractive either.
The only tattoo I've ever considered hinges upon a future in the military. If I succeed at my goals, I wouldn't mind marking myself as a soldier for the rest of my life, maybe even having my first unit's name, designation, and motto. As for all the old cliches? Well, no thanks, I don't need a tattoo to tell everyone that I Love Mom. Let's not forget that tattoos have historically been used as a method of noting achievements -- not pretensions.
true story!
I have one, though I had it augmented about a year after the first pass. I remember the sign hanging up in the studio, and it still holds true, I think.

"The different between a person with tattoos and a person without tattoos is that a person with tattoos doesn't care if you are a person without tattoos."
Great quote!
