It's also great because it looks like dirty sweat dribbling out of your armpit

It's Occam's razor in Latin.

Nice, but it does look like a Middle Earth script.

I've got a couple ideas for tattoos:
1) On my inner forearms: Two wheels good (left arm) Four wheels bad (right arm). I hate cars (and don't have one). I like bikes, scooters, mopeds, and hell, my own two feet. I was thinking it might look better in french, though: deux roues bon, quatre roues mauvaise, but a friend insists that "sont" be added:\t
deux roues sont de bons
quatre roues sont mauvais
But I'm not sure how correct either would be for the purpose (obviously, I'm stealing from George Orwell's "Animal Farm"), so I'm just going to leave it alone. Four legs good, two legs bad isn't exactly correct english, either. :P

I also want something that has to do with chocolate on my left collarbone to give my body some symmetry. I have a massive scar on my right collarbone (btw, bicycles + LA Traffic == really fun times (really fun times = getting run over and shattering a collarbone requiring surgery, metal plates, screws, wires, and staples)). Anyway, getting THEOBROMA in old english letters on my back isn't exactly my idea of tasteful...

I'd avoid text but that is just my personal preference. I'm planning on getting 1/4 sleeves on both of my arms within the next year or two in traditional American artwork. Not sure what yet, I'll probably see what the artist comes up with.

Most of my buddies have sleeves. The most original is my buddy who's got:
1) Sleeve of space veggies (he's ex-now semi-vegan). Seriously, a gigantic eggplant death-star, X-wing fighter carrots, etc.
2) Plumber's samurai battle (he's a plumber): It's like a traditional samurai battle piece, but the samurai are dressed in dickies, wife beaters, etc, and are wielding pipe wrenches, chain breakers, etc.

Yeah, goofy as all hell, but it's unique and does say something about himself.

a kid on my baseball team got "SWAGGER" tattooed across his chest
probably the dumbest thing i've ever seen
post #160 of 194
Being that he is from Gilroy, I don't doubt it.

Ive been throwing around getting "C'est La Vie" tattooed somewhere on me but dont know where.
post #162 of 194
Penis?
post #163 of 194
That Swagger tattoo is absolutely horrendous. I'd imagine "Ces't La Vie" would look pretty terrible. More like "Ces't La Ghey." Don't do it, it's way too trite. As I said before I am against text altogether in a tattoo. A lot of people need to get past the idea of tattoos meaning or saying something.

Long live postmodern tattoos.

I honestly really like the idea of the Occam's razor one. Certainly a sentiment meriting permanence.

I have been considering something similar.
