    Who has em, show em off and who wants em..

    I've been deciding if I want to get one or not... A few factors go into me actually getting it done though.

    Noles this isn't really directed at you so don't take offense, this is just my opinion in general....

    I don't get it, I really don't. Tattoo's are just a fad. I don't see the appeal AT ALL. Only reason guys do it is to "look cool." Sorry but if you feel the need to look cool you, sir, are almost certainly not. Quit over compensating and be real.

    I live in Austin, and everyone and their mom has one or is getting a tattoo.
    Every time someone asks me if I have a tattoo, or if Im getting one I say "You dont mess with perfection"

    Be hardcore and pick up a boiling cauldron with your forearms, branding a Tiger and Dragon onto them..

    I like tatoo's long as they look good. I love a good looking tattoo on woman!!

    Tattoo's have been around forever and there always around. I would argue against your point of them being a fad.

    I got a tattoo, I am a fan of them probably b/c of my father who has a lot more than me.

    I agree...if this is your first Tat, I would go with something small to see if you like it first, then if you do, ink away.

    I personally do not have any tattoos. Prolly never will.

    Guys, I wouldn't necessarily get those and that big... It just one's that I've been thinking about and different combinations of things.
    Leo, my faith and last name...

    I'm with Max though don't ruin perfection lol. The other one I would get would be a Knight on a horse with a shield with my coat of arms and the sword drawn...

    reason its so hard is because I am a Christian and the body is suppose to be the Temple of God and not suppose to defile it.. But I enjoy looking at them and really do like the artwork. Now if you go Lil' Wayne style, I do think that is tooo much and really is ruining your body (so much money dont know what to do with it....) but who am I to judge ya know?

    Yeah i have 2 tats right now. I am taking and getting a couple more soon. I have my Horseshoe with a tribal as shown above. As everyone knows my true passion in the colts/illini and my kids. I will be getting a big one on my back for my kids and the Illini Chief Illiniwek also. Tats are something that you should only get something you are passionate about.

    I have also thought about getting inked. I would get one solely for meaning. I definitely disagree that they are a fad. My buddy has a couple in remembrance of his father who passed from cancer...his fiancée has "hope" written out in a pink and blue ribbon on her wrist for the same reason. Another buddy of mine has his last name tatted on his bicep and the date his father passed encrypted within it.

    Which has influenced me to get something simple. Like a cross on the back of my shoulder, my arm, or my chest above my heart...just a simple cross with a single black dot around it in some pattern to represent members of my family.

    I have two tats as well, one represents my nationality, and the other the bond of a friendship between me and a friend who died. I'd have more if I was still stupid and didn't care that they cost wayyy too much money for a poor college kid like me. They are addicting though, that's for sure.

    If you're gonna get a tattoo, there are better Narnia characters out there.

    I have two tattoo's but they are just chinese lettering on my arms. I got the first one when I was 14 but I never found them to be addictive. I have 2 total. I've toyed with getting #3 but....ehhh....they are expensive. There are better things to spend a few hundred bucks on.

    LOL at tats being a fad sorry nothing against you but that's just plain wrong, they are practiced globally and have been done forever.

    Bly or a few others might remember somebody at the now defuckt MaddenMania excitedly posting a thread about their tattoo. It said Bros B4 Hoes on it in this gay-ass writing. He never heard the end of it. And you won't either, if you get something dumb.

    If you get one, just get something decent.
