Only reason to get tattooed is as follows: "It looks awesome!" delivered with exuberance and such.
No more of this "It was the 2nd Sunday of the month, and I was out in the hill country hiking through beautiful forests of trees with blades of sun splashing down through the canopy and mottling the ground with the motion of the leaves. The smell permeated my nostrils, and I could hear the woodland creatures frolicking about. That is when I had my epiphany, and vowed to cover my back with mer-men."
Unless, of course, somewhere therein is written: "And that was when the drugs began to take hold." Drug trips are also entirely acceptable reasons to get tattooed.
