    Thinking of getting some more ink done. What tattoos do you have, why or when did you get them, and what do they mean?

    And what the hell, might as well have a debate about it. Are tatts good or bad?

    Enjoy

    I have a J on my left shoulder. It just means Jesse lol


    I got it with my ex-boyfriend I had been with for some years and we weren't about to get a tattoo of each other's name. So I got a J and he got a D.


    But it's still something we remember that was a meaning for us.

    My tattoo consists of a red circular maze that has my chinese zodiac in the middle (dragon) and four other symboles on the bottom (courage, honor, wisdom and tranquility). Now, the zodiac represents myself (obviously) and the maze represents life and how easy it is to lose yourself. The four symboles on the bottom represent the tools you need in order to stay on track/find yourself/not get lost. I got the tattoo made the summer before moving to Montreal while i was working in Saint John which was when i officially moved out of my parents house.

    I don't have any ink, and don't plan on getting any. I will say I've seen some hot guys with tats that are sexy as hell, and I've seen some guys that have ink that is not attractive - the thing is some guys get carried away and have far too many for my taste. Sometimes it seems like a man with a beautiful body doesn't need ink to enhance it, but it's an individual choice and I respect a man's decision to do what he wants with his body.

    Yeah I guess I am a bit addicted....I have 5 but all have meaning:
    1. Tiger chasing a dragon on right hip, symbolizes the Ying/Yang and I am the year of the Tiger.
    2. Phoenix on left hip, to symbolize rebirth after some truly horrible things happening in my life, rising above them.
    3. Merman with Waves and ripcurls on my calf, symbolize my love of the water and how my life seems to revolve around it (through work, sports and travel)
    4. Two dancers on my other leg with "Sing, Dance, Act, Live", to symbolize my performing side
    5. The largest and most recent is my full back tattoo.... Maori/Hawaiian design to represent my family, and how my family makes up who I am....

    I Love tatts....love tatts on guys as well....icon_biggrin.gif

    You can find some pretty interesting opinions, and pics if you look at some of the other tattoo threads that are floating around.

    I dunno how to post a picture of mine via my phone.. But there's a good pic on my profile, with a description an junk icon_razz.gif

    <---Latest ink on my profile pic. It's my artist's interpretation of an old creation myth/folktale from the Philippines. Gonna be one hell of a piece when it's done.

    I've come to the sad conclusion that the guys who look best with tats have dark hair and darkish skin. Unlike me unfortunately.

    And that to look hot with tats you need to look hot anyway in the first place.

    Almost done with completing my left half sleeve so excited to get it done. Whatever you get make sure you're sure about it.
