    Interesting.

    I was once into tattoos and wanted to get my own then realised that:
    a) I wanted something decorative not something that means something - and believe me, people will bitch on and on about this
    b) Too many people seem to have them today
    c) Just think how easy it is to identify a person by their tattoos - "Oh I remember you, your the guy with the tattoo", "Hey did you see that guy with the tattoo?", It's always the tattoo icon_sad.gif


    Otherwise, nice tatt!! icon_smile.gif

    I agree, I do not think it is necessary for tattoos to have such significant meaning. Half of mine do have meaning but the rest is simply artwork.

    This one guy at the gym whom I chat with now and then (and who has one tattoo) kinda bitches and moans about people getting tattoos that have no meaning. He was carrying on and then I cut him off with:

    It is their body, why do you think you have a place to force your ideas on them?

    With my body language, tone and facial expressions I was basically saying, "Why don't you shut the fuck up and stop being so judgmental?

    He got the hint and he DID shut the fuck up. icon_razz.gif


    I like your tatts there MuchMoreThanMuscle (very nice turn on icon_smile.gif ) and agree at the fact that I get tired of people making it such a judgmental argument.

    I don't know what it is about the ink that gets me excited and perhaps one day I will get inked myself, until then I don't mind appreciating what others have chosen for themselves.

    Besides I think you need the smooth skin to get the full effect.

    Thanks man...I was thinking more like, its my own personal contellation. But also, I kinda wanted something kinda cliche cause i don't like people trying to read anything into it.

    I agree with you, some people think its stupid to get tattoo without significant meaning. I just tell them, dude, its my body and I get what I like. For me Ive been love with art and Im a graphic artist, so I love tattoos since it such a beautiful artform that not many know or can do. Also, im an inspiring tattoo artist in the making!

    Yeah I hate people who bitch about other people who have tattoo, I think they should just shut the hell up. If they dont like it, they should mind their own business since they have no right to tell people whats right and whats wrong.

    I'm not a negative person, but I cannot sleep with a guy that has stars all over his body.
    I think its just "too gay" and I'm open minded.

    To each their own.

    The one on my back i originally designed for my ex.. i tweaked it a bit and made it bigger and made the lower flame a bit longer..

    Working on a design for my second one which will possibly connect with the lower end of the tat on my back..

    Playing with a couple of designs from one that connects and goes around my waist to the front and have it cross my lower ab area and continue to the outter part of my legs and spiral around my legs down to my ankles..

    The other ideas i'm playing with are a shoulder and upper arm tattoo.. but i don't have the upper body for it yet ( like i have a body for the previous tattoo either,...)

    But they're just ideas. I unfortunately don't have the courage to put random tattoos on me for sake of art.. It has to mean something to me like the one on my back i guess.
