    Megan Fox has a similar tattoo...some text across her hips. perhaps that fact is going to make you rethink it now? heh


    actually it looks like it's in the same spot where I want it...

    maybe the latin you were thinking of was Angelina Joile's Quod me nutruit me destruit - "What nurtures me destroys me" above her pubes?

    Eek! Don't do it.

    a. Pam & Tommy Lee did it
    b. Hand, face, and neck tattoos seriously freak people out and it's not like you can wear gloves at job interviews.
    c. It'll hurt like hell.
    d. What if you don't stay married?




    A line around the circumference of my ring finger about ____________ this size is going to resemble a ring. Are people offended by rings?

    I have friends with tattoos, I am sure the pain this might cause me pales in comparison.

    I plan on staying married. Marriage is permanent, like a tatoo. People wear rings because they are a symbol. Like I said you can't undo a tattoo... you can't undo a marriage. When I am married, I am married end of story. 'Til Death do us part' is not 'til i get bored, or we go broke, or ...'

    It's not the same thing, lol.
    Yeesh.


    Also, marriages aren't permanent. They can be but they are not always.

    Some of the crazier tattoos just aren't my thing. It's like wearing an Affliction shirt for life.

    Has anyone see the recent RICK TA LIFE picture?

    He cut off his dreds and fully tattooed his head

    Only hardcore heads will know what i'm talking about.... 25 ta life


    It's funny that he was crying for donations for medical bills not too long ago and now he has enough money to get more tattoos...

    I thought that was obvious so I didn't mention it, but yeah. Things don't last forever these days.

    nothing to do with the future of your marriage, I'm not a fan of facial or hand tattoos unless you are in that line of work and the wedding band line tattoo just looks gauche

    might be cheaper than a ring, but I'd go the traditional route this round. Look into Titanium ring for yourself, they can go for a very affordable price, around low $200s

    I am considering getting a tattoo as opposed to a wedding ring. Not only can a tattoo not be taken off, lost, stolen, etc... they are less expensive.
    w00t? Not only can a tattoo be taken off but so can a finger and or hand. [​IMG]

    Tatoos are what makes someone unique, so yeah I think it is kind of a fashion statement

    I hardly think it makes a person unique.

    My cousin has "pro life" tattood on his back. More of a political statement than a fashion statement...

    depending on what you get, yeah it can make you unique.


    that being said I would never even consider getting a tattoo

    I feel that is beyond the power of mere ink. Also the statement infers that people who do not have a tattoo are not unique.
