That's fine, but he also not the type of person who wishes to hold any respectable corporate job.

Obviously w/ the many tattoos, he's not mainstream. I think he works on a small organic farm in the city. I'm sure he would beg to differ with you about a corporate job being 'respectable', though.

I have a tattoo that's a thickly veiled reference to an ex-girlfriend. I've had it about seven years and we've been apart and on fairly bad terms about six of those years. I wanted to change it or cover it up a few times initially, but haven't because it's developed new meaning beyond the original. I like it better now. I think I designed it that way, but didn't expect it to work.

On the other hand, my brother and I got our first (and same) tattoos together. Though we've never broken up and remain on the best of terms, he had his covered over and I've been planning a cover up on mine. It's not a bad or embarassing tattoo, it's just not great I suppose.

I guess he and I have a different perception as what passes for respectable these days (although, I fathom that most people would agree with me).

See, I love the piquancy of Get Smart's sharp '60s Brit suits and tattoos.

My idea is this: to get a tattoo of arabic calligraphy of my girlfriend of 4.5 years on my shoulderblade. It's not in a place that will cause employment issues, and not immediately recognizable as a name.

edit: the Arabic is mostly because I like the swirly look of Arabic writing and its unique, unlike kanji or chinese, which is everywhere. I wrote it myself and had someone tart it up for me, so I know what it says. I speak arabic, so I'm not gonna get stoned for having "muhammad's a pig" on me. The incomprehensibility to 99% of the world is just a bonus.

Are you two still together?

My dad has been a drummer professionally since he was 13, so it was no surprise that he got a tattoo of a drum set on the side of his bicep. At the time, his kit (that he been using for over 10 years) had 2 bass drums and within those drums he got a rendition of my mom's eyes. I always thought that was a neat way to incorporate her into his tattoo but make it much less apparent than her name.

Although, my mom has fairly bold green eyes so anyone who knows him can usually draw the correct conclusion fairly quickly.

Great bump, really.

My wife had gotten her tattoo before we met. I kind of wish I had been dating her then. It's well-hidden, so I never see it unless we leave the lights on.

Tattoo's on women turn me off. Like the full on back/arm tattoo that seem to be popular.

I don't mind if she has a small one and its hidden. But full on tats looks ugly to me.

Also, whatever you do, for goodness sake don't just get it in another language because you like the way the script reads. Is Arabic her native language? I don't mean to offend, but I think the "it's a different language because it's cool" is hopelessly tacky and uninspired.
chorse, although I don't know you, based on your post here, a tattoo seems out of character for you.
