    I've wanted a tattoo for a long time, but I can't decide on anything that doesn't seem either completely pretentious, or boring and shallow. [​IMG]

    I should have a contest! "Design a tattoo for Sauce", everyone submits art, I pick the one I like best... you'll get to see your creation in WAYW!


    If you don't want to seem pretentious, boring or shallow, get a dotted line around your neck with "cut here"

    or better, PHILLY THUG arhced across your stomach in old english lettering

    Maybe I'll just duplicate all my character's tattoos from GTA San Andreas. It'll be like I'm hardcore just by association. Association with a video game character. Yeah. [​IMG] Oh, I've got one: "No Fat Chicks", tattooed on the obliques.

    Only if the Tatoo says "The Devil Wears Prada" is it a fashion statement.

    Of course, a 19 year old girl who gets the stereotypical "emo chest tattoo" with various stars, sparrows, hearts, etc... is still going to feel stupid when they are 75 years old - but yeah - there are plenty of hot suicide girls out there [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Just a nitpick, but the stereotypical "emo chest tattoo" of a bird is a swallow, not a sparrow, I have a sparrow on me that I designed and I can't stand those generic swallow tats.

    I guess could imagine bringing home a nasty suicide girl for a one night fling, but I don't think I could seriously befriend anyone with a tattoo.

    If that 36% statistic is correct, I live a sheltered life in the city.


    Evidently.

    LOL

    My bad. By "fashion statement", I just meant do you consider how your tattoo is going to look with your style, your "fashion statement"? Does this figure into the equation at all? A lot of people put tattoos in places that can be seen even with clothes on, so it isn't just a personal thing but also a public statement just like clothes.
