So I want to get a tattoo. I'm reluctant to plaster my body with crap I regret, so I've been thinking long and hard about it for quite some time. I've generally known that I wanted to get a USMC tattoo, but wanted to wait until I was more settled in life to get it. Anyways, I was thinking about something similar to the following:
(Quote is: "No better friend, no worse enemy.")
I was hoping for some advice from the following types of men...
High School Teachers: What do you think of other teachers that have tattoos? Is it professional or not?
Parents: What would you think if your child's teacher had that tattoo?
Guys with tattoos in prominent places: Do you ever regret it?
It would be normally hidden under clothing, and therefore not visible. There's a reason that this thread is about tattoos that are easily visible.
As to that cat...I'll admit it's a triumph of creativity, but OMG it's tacky.
Well, there are variety of tattoo design and you can easily find these all design on net. But in my opinion, you should go for any quote tattoo, no design. These quote tattoo looks great on guys body.
As a professional tattoo artist for the past 7 years, I have a large collection of tattoos including my throat and my hands. I act with dignity and class when I interact with people and rarely encounter any negative looks from people. I feel as though it is how you carry yourself. I have painted murals for my childrens school, donated money from tattoo events to help clean up the oil spill in the gulf and also for our local library to be able to get things they need. My community respects me regardless of the art that adorns my body. Regrets? maybe that I started getting tattooed at a young age and the art has progressed so much that I see things I accomplish on skin and often tell my client "yup, did it again. jealous of a tattoo I made. "
My ex-wife is a teacher, she has two full sleeves, chest tattoo, some tattoos on her hands. All of them are very pretty and very well executed. Now I am not saying she is goin to be a principal anytime soon, but she is doing well regardless. We live in a fairly progressive community, but on occasion she tells me of some negative stares at the grocery store by old ladies. What can you do?
You cannot control how ignorant people view you. You should be proud of your time serving this country and you should be able to adorn your body with a piece of art to signify that pride.It is 2012 and tattoos are everywhere, on every profession out there. I think the stereotype o the biker or ruffian is outdated and invalid at this time. Check out the book Inked,Inc. for a little reaffirmation that it is ok.
