    I've been thinking of getting a shoulder to arm tattoo, I guess they're called "tribal tattoos" from what I've heard (how the fuck should I know).

    Do you guys have one? Do you like them? Do you think guys with these tattoos are hot?

    Any tattoo that covers a space as large as you have described, I think is way too much.

    But, it doesn't matter what anybody but you thinks.
    Just think long and hard before you do it.
    Is it something that just seems like it would be a fun thing to do ?
    Or, is it something that you want badly enough that nobody would be able to talk you out of having it done ?

    IMO guys with tattoos like that are hot but I'd never get one myself, not even a small one.

    To tell you the truth I might not even get one, ever. But I really think guys with these tattoos are hot! If I do get one, it wouldn't be as large as the guy in the first picture, but maybe something smaller and more towards the top of the arm (so that a t-shirt sleeve can cover it) like the guy in the third picture.

    I think they conceal too much muscle definition...kinda like wearing a tight-sleeved shirt. The curves are still there, but the fine lines and ripples can't be seen as easily.

    But that's just me and my "weird" arm fetish. Other than that, they look great.

    if your having doubts don't do it. only get one if you are sure it's what you want.

    I think they look awesome especially that second one, maybe not the first one as it looks like it could be drawn on with a magic marker, I dislike the really detailed intricate ones too.

    I think it's a fine line between on that's too plain and one that's too intircate but if you can get that right it looks amazing on a guy

    They can look great. Just think about it and think about the future. If I ever had one done (highly unlikely), I would go for one that did not extend below T-shirt sleeve level or above T-shirt yoke level. It's your body, your life, your choice.

    Also, don't get a motorbike as they are dangerous and only consume the recommended units of alcohol per week. Use sunscreen and eat your greens.

    In my opinion there is nothing sexier than a man who wants to permanently scar his body with ink. It's also a great way to advertise your non-conformist, independent personality. Most of all, I love tattoos because they show the world just much love you have for yourself and how well you plan for the future.

    IMHO The example pics you posted are tatts that are WAY overdone ( ie way too many people have them )

    I'm a firm beleiver in tattoos that hold personal meaning to you and represent something rather than " I want the same tattoo that guy got"

    Be orginal.. the world needs more orignal people

    and i think there's nothing sexier than a close minded man that assume everyone with tattoos hates themselves, is trying to be a non-conformist (it's almost the opposite anymore) and aren't smart enough to think of the long term effects.

    I just spent a week in Provincetown and saw about three thousand tats meeting that description.

    Love full sleeve tattoos- very sexy. But, I'm not really into the tribal look. For me, it's sexy when a guy has something more personal, something that tells a story...

    Be careful with the tribal tattoos.... they are very TRENDY right now. Much how the Chinese & Japanese symbols were popular in the 90's....

    There's nothing wrong with getting a big tattoo, it can be very attractive, but do something that is timeless and that means something to you. Just my 2 cents. icon_smile.gif

    Ditto, I don´t think that any kinds of tattoos are sexy. Don´t understand why somebody would do that t his body, but maybe that´s just me....

    If you're not completely sure about something so permanent, you have your answer.
